Section 25 Outernationale remix on Aurovine 
Independent music startup Aurovine.com launches on 11 May 2012 with a portfolio which includes two exclusive remixes from Section 25 latest release, the 'Invicta' EP on Hacienda Records. Colour, Movement, Sex & Violence and Inner Drive have been remixed by Scottish beatmasters Outernationale.

Aurovine aims to be an antidote the major label-endorsed free streaming services which marginalise artists. Their launch day is being styled 'download store day' and their selection policy is to encourage bands to make rare, unreleased and demo tracks available, with a nominated charity set to benefit from the proceeds.

Great idea. Any other factory related bands taking part?

A Certain Ratio

"Manchester, 1978. In the beginning there were four: Jez Kerr (bass), Martin Moscrop (guitar/trumpet), Peter Terrel (guitar/effects) and Simon Topping (vocals/trumpet). Four thin boys with a name borrowed from a Brian Eno record, the intense, drummerless quartet initially drew influence from Wire, Eno, the Velvets and Kraftwerk, and gained a manager in Anthony Wilson of Factory Records.

"May 1979 saw the release of their first ACR single, the dark All Night Party, although the sound and musicianship of the band would be transformed by the arrival of funky drummer Donald Johnson (DoJo) in August. Over the next few months the band gigged widely, often with Joy Division as part of Factory packages, and recorded demos with producer Martin Hannett as well as a Peel session. Their support slot with Talking Heads on their UK tour in December 1979 set David Byrne on a new course, and provided the compelling live half of their chic cassette package The Graveyard and the Ballroom. Post-punk, ACR now reflected the influence of Funkadelic, George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, The Bar Kays and James Brown."
