Video for tQ Johns Doran and Tatlock's remix from forthcoming 12"; plus, Foxx points to further Maths work, along with projects with Harold Budd and Rubin Garcia, Diana Yukawa and Benge and Robin Simon, in the near future

As we've previously reported, John Foxx is set to release a remix 12" (artwork - by Jonathan Barnbrook, no less - above) of his track 'Underpass' from his 1980 solo debut Metamatic on May 27 via his Metamatic label. It features remixes from Dave Clarke & Mr Jones and the Quietus' John Doran and John Tatlock - take a look at the video for the latter below:

Foxx is playing a couple of dates next month with The Maths, heading to Brighton Concorde 2 on June 7 and the Playground Festival at Brixton Academy in London on June 8.

We recently asked Foxx about his future plans, and he told us this:

"At present there’s more Maths – we’re working on another album at the moment. We’d like to get Hannah [Peel] involved in this one from the start – that violin and voice are unique – not to mention her synth and piano playing. The most talented all-round musician I’ve ever worked with. It would also be good to get Serafina [Steer] in as well – she’s justifiably wrapped up in her solo career at the moment, so we’ll see.

"Then there’s a long list of projects already begun - a domestic piano record with empty room recordings - Electricity & Ghosts. Another Harold Budd and Rubin Garcia. Rubin passed away recently but he and Harold had already sent some tracks so I’d like to work on them. A record with Diana Yukawa and Benge - Diana’s a phenomenally talented classical violinist, who wants to see what modern recording techniques can do with her skills – it’s a real adventure for the three of us.

"Then there’s one with Robin Simon, plus a pure electronic melody record I can’t quite classify yet – analogue electronic tunes. Sort of fairground, BBC, Blackpool-Tower-Ballroom-via-Las-Vegas-on-a-satellite-Theremin music. And a few others, too. Always healthy to have a long list."
