“As a white Israeli girl working as an MC in the music industry, and in particular as a singer, it’s a BIG battle to be taken seriously, and as a woman in the music industry, I am in an obvious minority, the situation is clear, the MAN is still in control – that has got to be addressed, and changed.” MISS RED for FACT Magazine.

New album K.O is released on Pressure, July 13. Produced by The Bug. Listen to the new single 'Dagga'.

I had an honour to invite Christel Morvan (Nesisart - Christel Morvan)​ and Nicolas Van Meirhaeghe​ as Empusae​ to participate at TEDxBrussels 2018 event. In less than 8 weeks they produced a retrofuturistic video and soundtrack under the theme of 'Brave New World' (A. Huxley) and performed it live.

Check out the footage from the event!

I am extremely curious about BARST new album 'The Endeavour' which is going to be released May 18th on Consouling Sounds. 'Beyond The Fields' features the angelic voice of Messy Mathi.
A complex, layered journey that embraces the best of post-rock, ambient and electronica with the emotional intensity of Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

ABOUT


Elena

Elena Mara Reed


It was Vilnius Punk-Hardcore scene that introduced me to extreme music and radical politics. As a teen activist I found shelter in various underground venues throughout Lithuania and the rest of Europe. Together with my grrrlfriends, we hosted a radio show 'Atviras Galas' dedicated to non-commercial music and feminist agenda, we set up gigs and naively hoped for significant socio-political changes. Years went by. I moved to the UK. Revolution did not happen. My taste in music became darker, grittier and more bizarre. Post-metal, sludge and doom. Desolation to spare with industrial, experimental, noise, ambient and dark techno.


One grim day I was chatting with a mate about the disappearance of the DIY culture. Mutually grim we mourned. Out of grimness an exciting idea of starting a new platform for extreme music was born. I wanted to give voice to underdogs of the scene, to add a personal, more intimate approach and most importantly to keep it DIY. Mutual Grimness - for extreme music artists and fans, who find catharsis in riffs (and beats) and refuge from the misery of life in music.
