London's electro-punk duo, Mechanical Cabaret have signed a North American deal with Chicago based WTII Records, LLC. Formed in 1999, Roi Robertson and Steve Bellamy combine a heady mix of industrial strength electro, memorable melodies, slamming beats, acidic synths, sci-fi soundscapes and throbbing bass, along with Roi's lyrical observations of the darker side to life - all delivered with a deadpan dose of sardonic punk attitude and British black humor.

It is with heavy hearts that we say the world lost a very talent man this past week. Jamie Duffy was a musician, producer, sound engineer, DJ, and most importantly a friend. His contributions to the label have been numerous over the years. From his work on the Acumen Nation release to help with live sound, he was always willing to go above and beyond the call to do what he could to help. We may not have said it enough but we always appreciated the support and we are going to miss those late night conversations over a shot of Jameson. You maybe physically gone but your contributions, influence and big heart will never be forgotten. Rest in Peace my friend you will be truly missed.

Their style comes to life in the new music video, "Fuck You, I'm Famous." This minimalistic video is straight to the point and also gives the viewer a glimpse of Dead on TV's high energy live show.

Life after having cancer can be a difficult ordeal. One is especially lucky to survive it. After enduring chemotherapy, radiation and a multitude of other therapies, there can be a lingering fear in the patient who is now a cancer survivor. Cancer returning is a nightmare come true to any patient. Scene promoter, DJ and Rein[Forced] frontman, Jim Semonik knows this only too well. Having survived stage 2B colorectal cancer in 2008, Semonik created one of the most successful compilations in any scene with the help of 83 musicians with Electronic Saviors: Industrial Music To Cure Cancer. This piece was very well received by press and critics and raised over 20K for Charity.
This time, he assembled a cast of 142 artists from all over the world to take on all forms of cancer. Semonik returns with all guns blazing on Electronic Saviors 2: Recurrence with new, rare and exclusive tracks from WTII artist's Rein[Forced], Trigger 10d, Am.Psych, Stiff Valentine, The Gothsicles and Lowe, plus tracks from God Module, Project Pitchfork, Hocico, Blutengel, The Dark Clan, 16Volt, Ayria, Left Spine Down, Panic Lift and much much more. From Covenant's upbeat "Lightbringer Feat Necro Facility (Speedrun II Mix)" to 16Volt's downtemo "Burn (Father Dub)" to the guitar attack Deathline International's "Inside" to the soothing synthpop of Tenek's "World of no Relief", ES2 offers something for everyone. This will be a massive 6 disc boxset available physically with gorgeous artwork from Jeff Confer and Samantha Johnson. Presented in a lovely 8 panel digipak with 16 page booklet, Jim's quest to bring this disease to an end through music has grown by leaps and bounds.
Jim dedicates this body of work to all who have suffered with cancer as well as survivors and loved ones touched by the disease.
