Hard and experimental

The Wirebug is a project for hard and experimental broken beats by Dan Moss, aka Dan Hekate.

Dan has been active as a musician since 1996 as a co-founder of the Hekate Soundsystem and has been involved in the running of labels such as Hex, Coven H and New Skin.

Dan and the Hekate sound system have been longtime friends and allies of the Praxis label and have been featured several times on our Noise & Politics YouTube channel, including a full length interview in 2023.

Even before the first appearance on Praxis proper, Dan and Christoph Fringeli from Praxis collaborated. These can be heard on Ambush 5 and New Skin 1 and 2.

Releases on Praxis

The first Wirebug appearance in the Praxis catalog is the 2001 EP The Uncontrollable H Disease, a 4-track vinyl EP.

In the late 2010s he produced the full length album Factory Food, which came out in 2019 as a 6-track vinyl EP and 14-track digital album.

In 2024 two digital remix releases came out, first the 5-track EP Factory Food Remixed with remixes of the title track of the album by [M], Killabomb, Kovert, Psychic Defence, and an extended version of the track by Dan himself.

And hot on the heels of the Factory Food Remixed, the track Busted Gush, also from Factory Food, was remixed by Alex Buess and released in the Praxis Digital Remix Series.

Interview with Dan on Noise & Politics

Dan is also a Datacide author and a feature film director. He still works actively on music, besides The Wirebug in the band projects Incirrata and Brace Brace.
