TRZTN

ServicesBreaking boundaries, breaking beats, breaking necks:
Services is your desire, and your desire is their business.

Services, formed in 2005,  have been an influential post-punk electronic rock band based in Brooklyn, NY,  led by singer, multi-instrumentalist and artist Tristan Bechet (aka TRZTN).  Up until recently Services operated as a duo with Trztn on vocals, cymbal and synth,  and Christopher Pravdica on sampler and drum machine with their smart  stop and go machine-gun fire of sample driven rock.    Christopher is now the current bassist in Swans, SERVICES  has evolved into a new hybrid employing different musicians in whirlwind style,  always wielding their gear like a weapon.

IN 2005 A Touch Of Class Records released their first full length CD titled “Your Desire is My Business” produced by Roli Mosimann. Since then  SERVICES have released two albums and toured the world in rock clubs, galleries and festivals such as the lauded ATP festival in the UK, Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona,  and Mozart’s 100th birthday bash in Vienna and Art Basel’s get down and party. SERVICES has been  Remixed  by MSTRKRFT, Zongamin, Nick Zinner (of Yeah Yeah Yeahs)

Trztn is one of the most important  figures in New York’s underground music scene.  While the trends have come and gone, the band has remained resolute in their creation of challenging high-concept music.

Trtzn was also the founder of PinksockRecords Label and past seminal bands such as Flux information Sciences (young god records) and Sauna Kings.  He has collaborated with Karen O in Spike Jonze’s he Where the Wild Things Are Soundtrack as well as  Foetus, FM Einheit, Zero Cash, David Bowie, and Melted Men to name a few in a diverse number of projects.

This new release on Flexidisco features “The Seed” in three diverse versions. “The Seed” characterized by its organic dance vibe and cryptic lyrics on mortality, carving a new path for TRZTN’s multifaceted dynamic paradigm, spawned from a recording session in a secret studio (Ski-Hut) from the depths of Amsterdam. A pop disco song in the classic sense, The Seed alludes to existential anxiety and desire. Musicians include Chris Pravdica on bass (SWANS, SERVICES) and Hervé Bouétard on drums (BERTRAND BURGALAT, ALPHA BLONDY). Engineered by P-Air. Zero Cash (Kitsuné / No Brainer / Flexidisco) produced the track, additional synths and delivered a squeezy remix. ALIEN ALIEN (Roccodisco / Slowmotion) added some Voodoo-esque flavor to their rework. Rodion & Hugo Sanchez also just remixed Ajello with great results and are also responsible for the still-doing-the-job ‘Sambaca’ – pure class.

The original track is accompanied by a new video, directed by TRZTN that will also debut in March.
