Throbbing Gristle hardware whizz Chris Carter is reissuing his two collections of remixes: Electronic Ambient Remixes One and Electronic Ambient Remixes Three later this year (30th of July). The albums are largely fresh Ambient takes on his own and early Gristle work and will be available on vinyl for the first time. Check out taster Heathen Mirth.

Some interesting back blurb from the press release:

Electronic Ambient Remixes One (EAR ONE) was the first in a series of four Electronic Ambient Remix solo albums by Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti. Originally released in 2000 (CTI), the starting point for the tracks was Chris Carter’s The Space Between (1980, Industrial), an album collating Carter’s analogue sound experiments recorded in the 1970s and 1980s at Throbbing Gristle & Industrial Records’ London studio. Electronic Ambient Remixes One is a reworking of those early recordings and features heavily manipulated and transmogrified drifting ambient textures, whilst still retaining the core essence of the original tracks.

Electronic Ambient Remixes Three (EAR THREE) was Chris Carter's second Electronic Ambient Remix solo album, originally released in 2002 (CTI), and at its nucleus are a dozen of his original Throbbing Gristle rhythms. These rhythms have been transmuted into three dimensional polyrhythmic loops, weird gothic textures and spooky ethereal ambiences. With track titles giving a sideways glance to the originals, the album features the pulsating beats of ‘Indiscipline’, the eccentric undulations of ‘Heathen Mirth’ and the unnerving hypnotic motion of ‘Hamburger Man’. 

In case you're wondering, Electronic Ambient Remixes Two was compiled by Cosey Fanni Tutti.
