So how did he do copying the bassline from Verschwende Deine Jugend? Proper EBM basslines are tough to do without a real analog sequencer.
“ust a small attempt to create a sequence in the style of D.A.F (Deutsch-Amerikanische Freundschaft) recorded with the camera microphone. Gear used: Korg MS20 and MS50 with Sherman filterbank to add some distortion. Korg SQ10. Doepfer quantizer. Korg MS02 to go from the SQ to the Quantizer and back to the MS synths.” – MentallyUnfit

In keeping with a new tradition on Wire to the Ear called “Sunday Sounds” where I post a music playlist each week here’s the next installment: Electronic Body Music. This is my personal favorite music genre. EBM is creative, powerful and mostly electronic music. You can find some sophisticated song arrangements and vocals in a lot of EBM. The genre almost disappeared in the early 90s but it’s back with new blood. Even the old guys are back on the show circuit.
I created this playlist using Imeem. You can find me there at
Are you an EBM fan?
