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
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.”
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
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
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 just wanted to share the new a very limited edition 7″ vinyl of my last release’s original song The Man Master and a never heard before B-side Drink with Me is now available on Sweden’s Flexiwave records.
“FlexiWave is very proud to present the next 7-inch with no -less than the legendary producer Oliver Chesler aka The Horrorist. Here he presents 2-tracks of rough Body-Wave music. Not to be missed out on.” – flexiwaves.com
