Renegade Soundwave - Select 12" rips

Renegade Soundwave - Select 12" rips
c/o Mr. Ward (thanks!!!)

1986 - 1990
Style - Electro, Dub, Electronic

Formed in London during the late '80s, Renegade Soundwave applied the punk and industrial ethic to both dub and dancefloor electronica, in good company with fellow sound terrorists throughout the decade, from Cabaret Voltaire to Skinny Puppy and Meat Beat Manifesto. The trio of Gary Asquith, Danny Briottet and Carl Bonnie debuted on Rhythm King with the 1987 single "Kray Twins," and moved to Mute one year later for an EP, Biting My Nails. Though Renegade Soundwave spent two years recording material for an album, the release of Soundclash and In Dub within six months vindicated them somewhat. The group's only hit, "Probably a Robbery" (from Soundclash), made the British Top 40 early in 1990, but Bonnie left later that year, after releasing the single "Renegade Soundwave", for a solo career. Asquith and Briottet spent several years in isolation before emerging in 1994 with the "Renegade Soundwave" single and the album How You Doin? During late 1994, after playing their first live date since their participation in 1991's "Mute Over America" tour, the duo released Brixton and The Next Chapter of Dub the following year. The compilation RSW 87-95 emerged in 1996.

cool - thank Mr. Ward! He's the awesome individual responsible for the real work behind these :)


Wow. Cocaine Sex is one of my fave tracks. These remixes (minus the Porno Beats one) were featured on a retrospective CD release a while back (forget the title).

I'm on a super hiatus!
