Omar Leon Moog Club Barcelona

Earlier this year I performed in Barcelona. One the highlights was listening to the club owner’s (Omar Leon) DJ set before I went on. I had no idea I was among musical friends so when I heard his mix of classic EBM and some New Beat records I hadn’t heard since the late 80s I was thrilled. I was again pleased this week when Omar sent his mix so here it is for everyone to listen to!

Here are some stills and the official music video for my (The Horrorist) upcoming EP with Radical G. The EP is called Here Comes the Storm and we have remixes from The Hacker, David Carretta and Al Ferox. Special thanks to UnleashedVisuals for creating this.

“You are the storm. Cyclone of death. Master of Doom. Born to Slaughter! You are the storm. Cyclone of death. You love to kill. All in your path! Here comes the terror! Here comes the storm! Here comes the terror! Here comes the storm! There’s no mercy in the storm path!!”

Volca Body Music

Here’s a nice EBM or maybe New Beat example of what the Korg Volcas can do. Check out that sick stand too. The performer should be wearing some Liberace style rings.

“Following in the footsteps of the monotron, monotribe, and MS-20 Mini analog synthesizers, Korg announces the Volca series. volca is a new lineup of EDM production tools comprised of three distinct models: the Volca Keys lead synthesizer, the volca Bass synthesizer, and the Volca Beats rhythm machine.” – korg.com

Radical G and The Horrorist

I am pleased to announce I am working on a new EP with Radical G. You can hear a clip of the first song we are working on called Here Comes the Storm above. Glenn is from Belgium so he has Electronic Body Music rhythms in his blood. I think we will have another two songs finished by August and soon after we will take the stage together here and there. I expect this EP to be a big one.

“Dark electronic madness founded in 2002 by Glenn Keteleer with pounding Rave sounds and techno hooks. No excuses regarding styles, Gloomy atmosphere’s, Wave & Elektro infuences by legendary bands as TNJ and Front 242 are part of the game… There’s no denial the Belgians have a fond taste for the darker side of the spectrum.”

Klinik – Nautilus

Running through a fierce sandstorm in the middle of some futuristic war. Lighting flashes and laser beams blast around you. That’s what I see when I hear The Klinik’s Nautilus. Total masterpiece!

“Pioneer Belgian EBM/Industrial band. Consisted of Marc Verhaegen and Dirk Ivens, original line-up also included Erik Van Wonterghem.” – Discogs

David Carretta – 2:move 05

David Carretta is one of the best techno meets EBM producers. His new podcast 2:move is out and features one of my tracks (Take this Step) among about 15 other really interesting dancefloor movers.

“Carretta captivates the crowd with some of the best synth lines money can buy. He really seems to lust for syncopation.” – Zombee (via Discogs)

MCL – New York

Here’s a lost late 80s EBM gem from Micro Chip League called New York. Be a part of it feel the heart of it New York, New York, New York. City of deceivers! At the time this record or it’s album cover probably didn’t stand out and now time changes everything. I couldn’t love this more today. The bass, synth pads, stuttering vocal samples, fake scratches, computer synth voice… audio time machine.

“In the late 1980s, Talla and Jallokin formed the band Pluuto under Talla’s own Technodrome Records (TDI Records) label. At the time, Talla was also involved in the production of several other projects such as Robotiko Rejekto, Tribantura, and Microchip League.” – Wikipedia

Inside the Volcano

My song Heart of Steel (Fire Funmania) will appear on a new compilation titled Inside the Volcano. Complete Control Records from Stockholm, Sweden are doing the fantastic release with 24 electronic body music tracks on it. One of the guys behind CCP, Anders Karlsson will also be performing with myself and Absolute Body Control at the Kalabalik Festival in Växo, Sweden this August 15/16th. I love the artwork on this one! 2CD available this March.

“A compilation where young, hot, electro punk acts like Schwefelgelb, Agent Side Grinder and Petra Flurr + Modernista demonstrate how to take a cue from old school influences and still sound totally fresh and thrilling. Industrial legends Portion Control, Ike Yard and Gerechtigkeits Liga refused to follow the herd when they started out at the dawn of the 1980s. They still do, and they remain as relevant and exciting as ever. Techno heroes Thomas P Heckmann, The Horrorist and Adriano Canzian have all contributed crushing dance tracks where old school EBM and furious techno fuse seamlessly. Also represented on Inside The Volcano is the new breed of leftfield dance music with mind blowing tracks from Equitant, Friherren, Diamond Skull District and K-Nitrate.” – ccproductions.org
