Mike Tournier’s current project, Anaxaton6 (formed with Barry Andrews, a founder of Shriekback), has just released its latest video, for a sort of dark-funk-electronic track “No Fool Boletus”. The video is also somewhat offbeat! Check it out below.
With enormous thanks to Libby Lawes, we’re very pleased to present an extremely long (1 hour 35 mins) interview with Mike Tournier of Fluke, Syntax and, more recently, Anaxaton6.
In the interview, Mike discusses the history of doing interviews as Fluke, on collaborations, on Syntax, what it’s like in his working day, on contemporary synthesizers and even some positive commentary on 2bitpie.net itself!

I’m very pleased to be able to report that long-term 2bitpie.net resident and Fluke-fan extraordinaire, jUSTIN cREDIBLE, has released his latest EP: “Head First”. A mix of pounding beats and more subtle and technically accomplished work than we’ve seen from him before, this is a must for any Fluke fan. In fact, here is what Jon Fugler, of Fluke, said of the release:

So, here you have it. Can’t argue with that!
Of especial interest, also, for readers of 2bp.net is jUSTIN’s great remix of Syntax’s new track, “The Man with No Name”, which should grab your attention.
Long-time Fluke fan Holden from the Hybridized forum writes with news of an epiphany moment that he had for a mash-up:
It’s a mash-up of Fluke’s “Absurd” (Headrillaz dub mix) and The Crystal Method’s “Trip Like I Do”. I have always enjoyed these tracks for their very energetic/aggressive sounds. Recently i was running with shuffle on and heard the tracks back to back – seemed to me that with a bit of editing and pitchshifting, plus some extra beats to hold it together, the main electro lines would compliment each other.
The result is pretty great and you can download it here!
Well, there’s some big Syntax news over at their official site that I’ll replicate here:
Firstly, many apologies for the lack of information since the original announcement earlier this year. Due to various other commitment issues, we have only just managed to get things moving with ‘TRIPOLAR’.
We decided, in the end, to release the new album ‘TRIPOLAR’ as a series of three EPs on our own label, Pandephonium. EP 1 is being promoted to press and radio now, but we have taken the slightly unusual step to make it available to download at the same time. It can be purchased from all the usual outlets, including iTunes and Amazon. A full list of sellers can be found here. Please note that the ‘purchase’ buttons on the website do not work. You will have to visit the seller’s site directly.
Many thanks to Etienne Gilfillan for the marvelous artwork.
EP 1 contains the tracks: The Man With No Name (Radio Edit), The Man With No Name (Full length version), Zero Vision, Thorns & Roses and Pennies & Change.
‘The Man With No Name’ is a sonically more refined mix of the version we have been previewing on the website. ‘Thorns & Roses’ is a recent mix of the original slow version of the track. ‘Zero Vision’ and ‘Pennies & Change’ are new tracks that have never been previewed before.
A release for Ep 2 is planned for early next year followed by EP 3 a few months later.
Many thanks to all of you that have written in. I have attempted to reply to everyone, but, in case I have missed anyone, I apologise.
We hope you enjoy the tracks. Please let us know what you think in the comments section.
Thank you to everyone for your support!
First off, some exciting news on the Syntax front. Amazon currently has a new Syntax EP, called “EP1: Tripolar” listed for sale. This looks set to be available from next week!
