Witcyst

Perhaps the most prolific artist new zealand has ever produced, Michael Veet Ruiliude has produced as Witcyst, or as an number of his other mysterious alias, Veetjist, M. W. Vit, Wytcystallio, Mxvxwx, Thighte Whistle, or a handful of groups – Falcoxi, Failian Falien, Naughty Pakehas, G.A.M etc etc the list goes on.

On his own Extemporanious and Lifespace labels there are over 600 documented Ruiliude recordings, and this number is growing daily, as he tends to release pretty much everything he records.

Purely a mail-order marvel, a witcyst package contains a bizarre array of musical snippets in any grab-bag stylistic approaches, and acompanied by various pieces of visual artwork. With all this activity, Ruiliude has also found time to collaborate with and contribute material with Clayton Noone and his Root Don Lonie For Cash label, whilst still maintaining a release schedule on his own labels of mammoth proportion.
