Out on November 4th is a double download Mute label tribute compilation album “MuteResponse”. Released as a double compilation download album by NominalMusics, “MuteResponse” will include 22 tracks from a range of artists who have been influenced by this pioneering imprint. The album includes contributions from producer Gareth Jones, D-R-U-N-K (Oly Grasset), Simon Fisher Turner collaborator Espen J. Jörgensen and Vic Twenty next to material from other bands.
“MuteResponse” was compiled by music journalist and Mute fan Mat Smith to coincide with the 10th anniversary of his ‘Documentary Evidence’ website. Says Mat: “I wanted to find a way of highlighting just how important Mute has been for electronic music. It would have been really easy to ask for straight cover versions of Mute’s best moments but I really wanted to find a way of capturing the essence of what the label means to people instead. In the end I did agree to one cover version being included (MO75’s instrumental take on Depeche Mode’s ‘See You’). It’s a real mixture of dark and light, which was one of the things I really wanted to showcase.”
The compilations consist of exclusive tracks created just for the albums, unreleased tracks and tracks from recent releases that suited the theme of the project. The album will be released through Bandcamp on 4 November 2013 and will include alternative artwork from some of the contributors to the project as well as Simone Grant, who designed the first sleeves for Mute, and Olivia Louvel. “MuteResponse” was mastered by Chris Sharp (Concretism).

Mute announce a series of Cabaret Voltaire releases, starting with the vinyl issue of Cabaret Voltaire’s 1981 album “Red Mecca” out on 22 July 2013. Remastered and available here on vinyl for the first time since Mute’s reissue in 1990, Red Mecca features the line up of Richard H Kirk, Stephen Mallinder and Chris Watson, and is Cabaret Voltaire’s third album, and the final full album with co-founder Chris Watson.
Red Mecca was remastered by mastering engineer extraordinaire Stefan Betke (Pole), who also works with Third Ear, Minus, Wagon Repair, Uncanny Valley, Ornaments, BPitch Control, K7 and mastered the VCMG project for Martin Gore and Vince Clarke.
The series of Cabaret Voltaire releases will continue with a box set release on vinyl and CD in the autumn. “#8385 (Collected Works 1983 – 1985)” will collate four of the Cabs’ classic mid-period releases, remastered – “The Crackdown” (1983), “Micro-Phonies” (1984), “Drinking Gasoline” (1985) and “The Covenant, The Sword and the Arm of the Lord” (1985) – alongside bonus CDs and DVDs.
In early 2014 “#7885 (Electro Punk to Techno Pop 1978 – 1985)” will compile for the first time, both periods of Cabaret Voltaire together on one release.
