"Brodie Guy...started experimenting with dance loops and noise on tape machines in 1991 at the age of 11. As one-half of [then Vernon's] CPUWar, he signed his first record in 1999 to kool.POP Records in Germany with four envelope-pushing tracks that pioneered a new
breakbeat sound. Through various projects, he has since released a number of recordings on various
record labels in Europe and North America. Having
already appeared on the 1st Destro mix-tape as CPUWar,
Zod [released] Brodie's debut solo release as a split
with Doormouse in 2002. Through his projects, Brodie
has earned a reputation for bringing a fresh dose of
spontaneity and punk attitude that results in music
somewhere between outside electronics/glitch-sound‚
and digital hardcore."
"Brodie Guy offers up breakbeats that are sequenced absolutely perfectly, using just the right amount of stretching and hammering to create some real wicked tracks. 'Get with This (Crackdown)' is the best example, with fuzzy lulls of calm laced throughout, before the impending psychoticness coming back for seconds and thirds."
"CPUWAR [produced] hard slamming trashcore together as a duo since 1998. Innovators of glitch-punk splatterbreaks – shown on their 1999 debut 12” on Kool.POP Recordings label in Berlin Germany, CPUWAR have released numerous recordings throughout the world in the past 4 years. The group, based in British Columbia, Canada, started their own independent record
label in 1998 – the now infamous trashcore label
D-Trash Records. CPUWAR appear on the new DHR US
Compilation with their self-explanatory track FUBAR. Pushing the limits once again, CPUWAR have melded the punk attitude of early Riot Beats sounds with a new sense of urgency – tearing into a new sound that Digital Hardcore is now ready for. 'It's similarly easy to picture people dancing their ecstasy wired
asses off to this as it is to envision massive
pile-ons and slam dancing.” - Exclaim! Magazine,

CPUWAR (Digital Hardcore)

There comes a time when rules become outdated, a time when constraints become nothing more than memories and harmless nostalgia. That time is now. D-TRASH Records is a collective of hardcore electronic artists with a habit for destroying what is old, and creating what is new. With a D.I.Y. attitude and a few pieces of electronic machinery we can ta... more info
