The Toxic Avenger: Cry! Mixtape

The Toxic Avenger is notorious for his infectiously catchy, self-produced dance-a-thon tunes, but is equally recognised for his perfected remixes, most notably his work with Sexual Earthquake in Kobe’s “Love with Chloë Sevigny”, “Dance Among the Ruins” by Tommie Sunshine featuring Peaches, and Ladytron’s “Ghosts”. He developed a noisy, scratchy and heavily saturated sound, but keeping a melodic line that sometimes recalls many Ed Banger artists.

Though his dance-inducing electro remains his signature style, The Toxic Avenger draws from a number of distinct influences not directly related to the dance scene, as illustrated by the Cry! mixtape here presented.
