Here’s a new piece of patent leather synth music to pre-order. My friend Daniel Myer of Haujobb let me know about DSX. This is a side project of Dejan Samardzic. My favorite on this is “Don’t Resist” which has a proper EBM feel to it. The pacing of the song’s arrangement is really good. The vocals come in and out in a nicely psychotic manner. I also really like “Information War” which reminds me a lot of David Carretta’s darker stuff. Expect to see that one many a future DJ mixes. It will also be available on Vinyl. Listen now and grab it December 14th.
“The first song ‘Demonic feat Emily Steigerwald’ reminds me of just enough Dive (Welcome to Hell) mixed with Gitane Demone’s (Incendiary Lover) eery singing style…. but better. ‘Don’t Resist’ is a relentless bass-driven track with a detuned synth-lead reminding me to The Normal’s (Warm Leatherette)… but harder.” – peek-a-boo-magazine.be

My friend David Merlino who is one half of the famous Pet Duo techno act sent me some information and a wicked cool Cold Wave/EBM DJ Set from DJ Magal.
“This mix is from a very old school DJ from Brazil. Magal was the one who first dropped Ministry, Front 242, Clock DVA @ Hoellisch, a very underground club in downtown Sao Paolo, where i first heard many EBM bands…responsible for my everlasting electronic addiction… Nowadays he is resident at Madame Satã, another underground club but with very dark vibe…think they had A Split Second a few months ago there.” – David Merlino

I am pleased to announce the release of my next single The Man Master. The song takes you inside a world of gender bending and sexual domination. If you’re a fan of early 80s new wave, synthpop and EBM I think you will love this one. Everything was recorded using real analog equipment. The main synth is an Analogue Solutions Telemark. The drums are Jomox Mbase, Mbrane and MFB-522. Everything was sequenced using a Doepfer Dark time. I was blown away by the Carretta & Workerpoor and Millimetric remixes. This is the second single from the upcoming album Fire Funmania. The music video was shot in Berlin and I give a great hug to the director, Kate, the little makeup girl and everyone else!

An Electronic Body Music band has to be good live. In my opinion the sing Thoralf and synth man Vigo ofJäger 90 have it going on. I would like to play an event where they are or work with them on something.
“Jäger 90 is a band from Germany, Rostock. Their musical influence lies in the 80s, first and foremost in the legendary pioneers of EBM: Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft.” – Last.fm

One of the first and great Electronic Body Music compilations was Welcome to the Technodrome (1989). I loved the track on it called Aimless by Typis Belgis. By the wonders of the internet I discovered another song by the band called Dark Horse. Discogs has an album listed called Deodorant Voor De Derde Oksel which was released on cassette. If anyone has it I would love to hear it!
“Typis Belgis began in the late 80′s as a dark underground electronic bodytobodymusic-project between Hans P1. , Rik S’ex. and Thierry V6. . After making several compilations and numerous gigs they are considert as being one of the founders for what’s later been called New Beat and other styles of electronic music. After they split up, rumors of a possible comeback were never been confirmed.” – padas2

Jean-Luc De Meyer singing the 1982 Front 242 song Kampfbereit in his side project Underviewer. He’s been singing this song for 30 years and it’s great every time.

About a year ago I started being contacted by promoters in Bogota, Colombia for a possible booking. At first I thought jeez I’m going to end up kidnapped eating cocaine leaves in the jungle. Since then some of my good friends played down there and loved it. I also realized they are into a lot of the music I’m into and certainly the show would fit. So if all can be arranged I’ll head way south at some point this year. One of the promoters known as Bluekim Tanzdiktator has a nifty EBM DJ sets that I thought I would share.
“Today she is part of the Complejo Industrial Crew (Bogota) and she is the official Dj of the french label managed by Dj Stamba “Deviation Sociale” in which she will be releasing her tracks soon.”
