On August 7, Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) will release Rob Zombie's "Mondo Sex Head", featuring new and unique remixes of Rob Zombie classics by some of today's top DJs, including KORN's Jonathan "JDevil" Davis, Photek, the Bloody Beetroots, Drumcorps and Ki:Theory. "Mondo Sex Head" was curated and executive-produced by Jason Bentley, Music Director at L.A.'s influential KCRW and Electronic Dance Music expert. Richard Bishop, co-executive producer of RE:GENERATION music project and documentary film, supervised the project. Each track was hand-selected by Rob Zombie who road-tested many of the songs in his car, driving the L.A. streets.
"I like the idea of taking songs and reconfiguring them," says Zombie about the album, who is taking an alternative approach in the digital retail space. The album will be preceded by two separate, digital-only EPs, with tracks taken from "Mondo Sex Head" and exclusive bonus tracks.
With Electronic Dance Movement (EDM) and rock rapidly banging heads together, Universal Music Enterprises' "Mondo Sex Head" couldn't arrive at a better time, featuring remixes by the likes of KORN's Jonathan "JDevil" Davis ("Thunder Kiss '65"), Photek ("Living Dead Girl"), Document One ("Let It All Bleed Out"), Ki:Theory ("Foxy Foxy" and "Pussy Liquor"), Big Black Delta ("More Human Than Human"), ††† a.k.a. Chino of DEFTONES ("Dragula"), Das Kapital ("Lords Of Salem"), Drumcorps ("Never Gonna Stop"), former GLITCH MOB member Kraddy ("Superbeast") and the BLOODY BEETROOTS ("Burn"), among others. Zombie credits the idea for the album to a conversation with his manager, Andy Gould, who told him he was constantly hearing DJs incorporate samples of Zombie's music into their performance sets.
