The frontman and moniker familiarized by the Occupy Wall Street movement, Anonymous, has frequently attacked Neo-Nazi activists across Europe, trying to remove all web-outlets praising their organization. Earlier this morning, Anonymous successfully hacked their ‘mail-order’ website, sending this message, alongside an Atari Teenage Riot track, to all members linked within their server:
Magnetic Magazine reached out to Felix Cartal to discuss his ‘life music chart’, featuring all the “Top 5” tracks, both new and old, that made him into who he is today. In an interesting array of music, Felix was asked to provide his favorites amongst the “Top Dance”, “Top Electronic”, “Top Non Electronic”, “Most Played On iTunes”, including a random mention to the most “ideal tracks for a summertime pool party”.

Atari Teenage Riot – Riot In Japan 2011
Atari Teenage Riot toured worldwide throughout 2011 and in November recorded this live show in Tokyo to bring listeners just a taste of their incendiary live show, described by the NME as “…a cavalcade of forever-young yelps: a brilliantly nasty volley of universe-shaping techno-metal.” Rock-a-Rolla wrote: “Seizure-inducing levels of strobe lighting are joined by breakbeats, jungle, drum ’n’ bass and caustic guitar samples at every turn, providing enough variety and energy to prove that this is no mere nostalgia trip for them, this is a return to arms.”
Now if that doesn’t tempt you….
2012 is the 20th anniversary of Atari Teenage Riot so expect much to happen this year, including a remastered version of the classic ‘Burn, Berlin, Burn’ album, new singles and a studio album. The band will also be touring internationally, beginning in February in Europe and South America.
Check out the Atari Teenage Riot artist pages for more info.
“It’s about energy,” exclaims Atari Teenage Riot singer Alec Empire of the band’s live gigs.
The digital hardcore pioneers distill visceral energy into Riot in Japan 2011. Captured during their triumphant set at the Fuji Rock Festival, the group’s latest release for Dim Mak is an explosive and energizing snapshot of one of their legendary live performances. The band sounds intensely infectious as they run through classic songs as well as “Activate!” Empire and co. did something that’s normally impossible for rock and electronic acts—they made a live record that really does make listeners feel like they were there. Not only that, it’s as potent as one of their studio efforts.
Riot in Japan 2011 drops on February 28, 2012 via Dim Mak, but Atari Teenage Riot has partnered with ARTISTdirect.com to exclusively stream the album below.

Atari Teenage Riot and Rowdy have released the official February Beatport chart, featuring 10 must-have tracks for all fans of ATR community alike. We’re pretty impressed with this chart as it truely encompasses the varying and unique style of ATR’s sound. With the addition of Rowdy, we’re excited to see what new sound might come in the near future.
“Rowdy Superstar is the first British member of ATR which is interesting considering the role of the UK in the evolution of the band “We need a true voice from Great Britain! The London riots last year, the politics, etc etc … it is more important than ever to hear a musician who is so close to all that while the musical mainstream doesn’t reflect the reality anymore.” ~Alec Empire

Felix Cartal – Domo
“Domo” in Japanese is a greeting meaning something along the lines of “Well, hello there!” It’s also the title of the new song from Dim Mak recording artist FELIX CARTAL who today celebrates the release of remixes by Étienne de Crécy and Pierce Fulton via Beatport and iTunes. “DOMO” is the second single, following “Don’t Turn On The Lights,” off of FELIX CARTAL’s album DIFFERENT FACES out March 27 on Dim Mak.
Featuring illustration by London-based illustrator Dan Stafford, the general idea for the “DOMO” video was to produce something that really worked with the huge drops and blistering pace of the track. “When Felix and I were talking about what to do for the video we had loads of really complicated ideas about Japan, 90’s club culture and making a short anime cartoon, but we quickly boiled the idea down to a simple visualization of the track with a theme of moving from sense to complete nonsense,” says Stafford. “It all came together as a journey from a hoop-jumping-rat-race to a frenetic weekend mess, all slathered in J-pop color. DOMO!”
