The sole member of Blue Stahli, Bret, comes from a background of fetish burlesque troupes, drag queen fronted punk bands and believes that he is visited in his dreams by the ghost of William S. Burroughs.
In addition to writing and performing Blue Stahli, he is also the other touring member of the Celldweller live show. During live performances, he is frequently given to fits of spastic energy while abusing guitars, making loud angry noises on synths, and punishing a tricked out tribal drum set like he caught it breaking into his house. Celldweller mastermind, Klayton, dons... read more
FiXT is an independent company with several divisions, including the FIXT Store, FIXT Remix Online Community, FIXT record label and a Film/TV/Video Game Licensing arm. FiXT is owned by Klayton of Celldweller.
Blue Stahli arrives at your party in suave style with a bombshell on each arm, martini in hand, but by night's end he will be throwing burning couches into your pool. Such is the one-two punch of the debut Blue Stahli album - ten tracks of cathartically vengeful alternative rock with a streak of Ray-Ban-sporting electro-funk that gives it a sexiness punk never had. Stahli doesn't shy away from playing with the reigning dance styles of our day but each track retains the distinct Stahli flavor that wrenches your head open, climbs in, and uses your brainy bits to pantomime Pete Townsend's entire history of guitar-smashing. Bret's knack for hybridizing genres is aimed squarely at the front lines of alternative music, and with this instrumental version of the album you'll be able to pick apart and explore with ease the swaggering riffage that drives Stahli's powerful voice.
Kaia Young has completed her fifth release as The Luna Sequence! Taking another bold step forward with this album, Kaia digs into her hardcore punk and metal roots to incorporate blast beats and ever harsher guitar licks to her distinctive style of hybridized Rock/D'n'B/Electronica. Ten blistering tracks explore the emotions evoked by the smell of your own blood shed by the hands of another.
The debut album from Australian Drum & Bass and Dubstep producer DJ Pulp is now here under the name Hold My World. Being only 14 years of age, this little guy looks like he can have a future in the industry. You will experience calm ‘nature-like’ Drum & Bass down to the smashing brutality of Dubstep. Turn up your subwoofers to enjoy the full thrill of DJ Pulp.
Three Hours Of Sun, which includes 11 tracks of alternative electronic rock-metal, features the guest appearances of Ettore Rigotti and Claudio Ravinale (Disarmonia Mundi) and has been mastered by Ettore Rigotti at The Metal House Studio (Disarmonia Mundi, Blood Stain Child, Slowmotion Apocalypse, Destrage, Stigma, etc...).
“Move” is about as heavy as they come. Militant drumline snares build up into an absolute crushing drop highlighted by a menacing hip hop vocal. The tune switches from heavyweight to heavyweight as it breaks into a massive reece bass and then a distorted 303 acid workout. If you need to hammer the crowd, this will be your weapon of choice.
“Neurons” brings it with an entirely different flex. Cascading synths and an uplifting female vocal lead to a HUGE buildup that drops into a churning biomechanical bassline. Bring in that year 3000 west coast synth line and it’s a wrap! Muffler kills it with a blend of the light AND the dark. ...read more
If the Blue Stahli who created the first two volumes of Antisleep was the fun-loving master of funk who crashed your Hollywood Hills garden party to cannonball off the roof into your pool, the Blue Stahli who made this third volume is the one who, clad in black and backlit by one flickering Exit sign, appears in your rearview mirror as you get into your car late one night in a dimly lit and otherwise empty parking garage. Is he there to warn you of imminent danger? Is HE the imminent danger? All you know is that the funk is gone and a sinister chill in the air is making the hair on the back of your neck rise. Better get your key into the ignition…whatever happens next,...
In 2007, Bret Stahli arrived in Detroit, MI to create music under the tutelage of Klayton of Celldweller. Six years later, Bret has much to show for that fateful step north: a self-titled debut album of face- stomping, electronic-tinged alternative rock, three diverse volumes of instrumental soundtrack material (the Antisleep series), a season spent performing as one half of the live Celldweller show, and a ravenous fanbase begging for more.
Now Bret is closing the lid on this first 'era' of Blue Stahli as he writes songs for his second album and fashions a live show of his own. As a fond farewell to the years of creativity that brought him this far, Bret...
If you haven't yet heard, here's the news: Blue Stahli is indeed writing songs for the follow up to his ass-kicking self- titled debut album! Unfortunately, he's working on those songs from within a prison cell. This brand new stand-alone single tells you why. Musically, the chainsaw pop of "Never Dance Again" is Bret's love letter to the 80s. Thematically, the song is a love letter to...well, you'll see. In case it isn't overly obvious to you after listening, Bret's a jealous lover. Let that be a word of warning to any of his fans who wear some other band's T-shirt to a Blue Stahli show. "Never Dance Again" comes accompanied by a...
The Blackstar isn't finished yet with it's interstellar voyage. It remains in a mysterious orbit, exerting its influence on space and time, transforming all it touches.
The Space & Time EP includes new evolutions of songs from Celldweller's monumental Wish Upon A Blackstar album. The drumstep/metalstep monster "Unshakeable" has been morphed by Klayton himself into a dark slice of Drum & Bass with sinister growls of bass writhing beneath a steady rhythm. Under the watchful eye of Tim Ismag (courtesy of Play Me and Rottun Recordings), "Tough Guy" is turned on its head, revealing...
How will you choose to die? Presented here are the auditory essences of ten macabre ends. Select one, listen to it, let the sound construct a death scene in your mind. Pick your poison. With this first volume of instrumental soundtrack material, Varien has woven together a tense, sweat-inducing cinematic experience out of bass music, oppressive atmospherics, and orchestral elements. Having racked up multiple Beatport chart positions, a slot on Skrillex's Bangarang EP, and high-profile remixes of Gareth Emery and Celldweller in his young career, Varien wields a talent that promises to intoxicate film, television, and game screens just as effectively as it has infiltrated...
Soundtrack for the Voices in my Head Vol. 2 both meets and transcends the expectations placed on the followup to Celldweller's first volume of instrumental soundtrack material. Everything you loved about Celldweller is still here - pounding riffs, intricate electronics, flourishes of orchestral strings - but new elements now expand the scope of Celldweller's instrumental ouevre. Dubstep-inspired bass-play, flirtations with Moohmbaton and progressive metal, and several shades of ambient experimentation round out the diversity of sounds here. Soundtrack for the Voices in my Head Vol. 2 is primed to continue Celldweller's domination of film, television and...
