Nature of Wires was chosen to be BBC Introducing Artist of the Week from April 26th 2021.
Andrew Marston of BBC Hereford and Worcester invited Gary onto his show on April 24th, to discuss remixes, Germany and more.
As part of the show's Collaborator Generator feature, Gary was introduced to Andy & Scott of Badeye, from Redditch, with a view to creating Gary's 100th remix, the challenge being to come up with something ready for broadcast on May 1st. The remix of 'Hold Me Now' was duly completed and was released on Bandcamp on June 25th and all other major streaming & download platforms on July 2nd. You can buy it or pre-save it to your favourite platform by clicking on the image.
We are delighted to announce a brand new synthpop collaboration with up and coming Anglo/Burmese duo Machina X. Here's what Machina X has to say about this exciting new release:
"We’ve admired and wanted to work with Nature of Wires for a while and this collaboration has been such a great experience - he’s a total pro, one of the good guys. We’re all delighted with how this track has turned out. Within reflects and highlights a sense of conflict many have between wanting to show an attractive outward image but risking objectification because of it - the observed vs the observer. Overt objectifying on the many 'visuals-friendly' platforms has become rife and has even gained a level of social acceptance. Within is a reminder that books are more than just covers."
Within was released on our Bandcamp page on May 14th and on all other major streaming and download platforms on May 28th (links are here). There's even a really cool video for it, which you can see here.
The Generation Blitz compilation features thirty-four prime cuts from the frontline of today’s 1979 – 81 electronic post punk/synthpop-inspired global underground. Featuring exclusive songs and remixes alongside classic tracks, Generation Blitz brings together many of the most exciting names from the global electronic music scenes (including Nature of Wires), inspired by the Blitz Club era. The collection includes overt homage alongside creative deconstruction of some of the sounds and styles of the period. The set moves from sophisticated synth pop classics to electronic new wave floorfillers and takes in minimal electronic synth punk and outsider post punk along the way. These are the sounds of a global scene that is an open space for all genders, sexualities, ethnicities, ages and abilities.
Release date 30th July 2021
The Plan is a tribute compilation to celebrate and honour Mayuan Mak, the founder of Electrowerkz/ Slimelight London who sadly passed away on Wednesday 9th December 2020.
We are delighted to be included on the 'Big Hugs' part of the compliation, with the Leaether Strip Remix of 'Through Someone Else's Eyes' featuring the stunning voice of Madil Hardis (more about this further down this page).
Release date 4th July 2021. Click on the image to go to the Bandcamp page, from where you can buy all 4 parts of this great collection at a discounted price.
As a forerunner to the full-length album to be released later in 2021 (more details coming soon), we'll be releasing 4 remixes of some of the tracks, which have been superbly crafted by Austria-based renowned dance producer Andrea Zechmeister, aka Asota Music International, on 30th July (Bandcamp) and 6th August (Spotify etc).
Andrea and Sarah (aka Lady BNow) have been working together for some time now and so it's great to have Andrea on board. Artwork provided once again by Vlad McNeally.

A real treat for EBM fans! The Leaether Strip remix of "Through Someone Else's Eyes" is now available on Bandcamp and all major streaming and download platforms.
The Danish genius Claus Larsen has combined Madil's soaring vocals with some good, old-fashioned EBM stompiness and it works brilliantly, as you'd expect from such an experienced and revered exponent of the EBM art. This is the third remix which Claus has created for Nature of Wires, the other two being Human Nature, from the 2019 Reborn EP and Madame Serena (which is our most streamed song on Spotify), from the 2019 Modus album. Conversely, in 2016 our Gary did a great remix of Leaether Strip's Into It's Eyes, which is the theme song for Meathook Massacre II and which is included on Leaether Strip's 50 album.

Following the success of 2020's "A Heart So Divine (for Kurt)", our Gary & Claus Larsen of Leaether Strip have teamed up again to bring you "Destroyed by Madness". This is a return to the harder sound for which Leaether Strip and to a lesser extent Nature of Wires are known. There is a full length version (Parental Advisory) and a shorter radio edit suitable for broadcast on the BBC :-)
Destroyed by Madness is available now on Leaether Strip's Bandcamp page and also on all major streaming & download platforms. The song entered the German Alternative Charts at number 9 on 26th April, rose to NUMBER 1 two weeks later and remained there for four weeks, before eventually being dethroned by the awesome Clan of Xymox.

This epic song combines powerful electronic elements with ethereal vocals. It describes an out-of-body experience - like a ghost on the threshold between two worlds. You’re lost, trying to hold on to what you knew to be true and real. Clinging to someone else’s life, you live through someone else’s eyes.
Some of you will be familiar with Madil Hardis, as she sang on Wild Eyes by Ashbury Heights, which was released in December 2020. As well as being a phenomenal singer, Madil is also an accomplished film director.
