Rex Ramsa: industrial-inspired machine-core techno outfit rigorously delivers the most demanding metal-tech psychic-stamina experiments. (Was previously Droid Charge, and then Spannhaken.)
Encapsulating noise, hardcore dance music, listening apparatus brutality, brilliant accidents of software-generated expulsions, Rex Ramsa is dedicated to blatant, caustic machine expressions, the simplest of musical gestures, clone non-music for a non-audience devoid of aesthetics and empathy.
All of this juicy, abstract, art-wank genius — Droid Charge — was repurposed and rebranded into the project Spannhaken no thanks to Samsung’s stupid phone and blatant disregard for my use of that name. Spannhaken is the most impossible name for the English-speaking mouth to say and will invariably become yet another name, but such is the nature of software-generated expulsions. Rex Ramsa has returned in the stead of Droid Charge’s former glory now that the Samsung phone moment has passed. The question is whether an army of audio bots can conquer the jetsam of the telecommunications media parade – one would think so. Rex Ramsa is now a fierce hunter of all machines in the Samsung universe. Dance, or be pulverized by a fleet of star cruisers.
In 2011, the official web site for Spannhaken was just wobbling onto its freshly oiled legs when it was hijacked by a wintery band of peppermint Chinese railway engineers. This leaves us with very little photoshopping frolic, other than a few lonely iTunes and CD Baby outposts.
There are a staggering number of Rex Ramsa sessions waiting to put knives in ears – they will be edited and mastered as time allows.
Rex Ramsa – started as an outlet for soulless abstract art techno, it grew into a monstrous robotic hardcore project. But the Samsung company released a mobile phone called the Droid Charge, which sent the name to the trash compactor. Thus, there was an attempt to rebrand the project as Spannhaken, which was abandoned; one album resulted under that name. Finally, all of the Droid Charge/Spannhaken material was moved under the new name Rex Ramsa. This is the continuity of the psychotic Droid Charge legacy, as of 2015. This project is still active and generating new material.
