Flavor of the Week #45

Front 242
( ;D --> Front 242 is a Belgian electronic music group that came into prominence during the 1980s. Pioneering the style they called electronic body music, they were a profound influence on the electronic and industrial music genres.)
Recovery For You (An Alfa Matrix Tribute To Front 242)
( ;D --> With “recovery >for you<”, the Alfa Matrix label is closing this double-celebration year 2016 in beauty. For its 15th anniversary, the Belgian record label also celebrated in many ways the 35 years of existence of FRONT 242. Pioneers… Artists who reached such an elite level. FRONT 242 have always had a vision of the future. For the last 35 years, they have showed us what could be possible with gear, human imagination, creativity, working to bend instruments far away from of their intended purpose. Since day one, FRONT 242 have always been employing the use of the most current technology available to keep their music fresh, groundbreaking and up to date, non-stop pushing their sound to its logical extreme. Their unique signature sound turned the group into a major driving force of electronic music for the many years to follow.)

Dead When I Found Her
( ;D --> Dead When I Found Her is a Portland, Oregon based electro-industrial project that creates old-school sounds in the vein of Skinny Puppy and Front Line Assembly, circa late 80's / early 90's.)
Eyes On Backwards

( ;D --> In the purity of calm, in the retreat from all chaos, from everything that stumbles uncontrolled over a soul, Maurycy Zimmermann plants his seeds. As Mooryc grows his tracks which are in the dark and unbelievable, they allow a clear structure to the day. His pieces are relentlessly finelimbed, sharply thought-through and filled with a tenderly soft melodic that reconciles all. Mooryc, the project of the Poznan musician Maurycy Zimmermann is like a wing flap full of tone lines, thick rhythms and brings the depths to the light.)

( ;D --> Seabound is a synthpop/futurepop duo from Germany. Their lyrics are in English and for the most part explore the human psyche and the way that everyday events can affect a person psychologically. Meeting through joint friends, Frank Spinath and Martin Vorbrodt came from different worlds. Because they were so different personality-wise and musically, they weren't certain if a musical collaboration would work. Despite this, they decided to try anyway. The duo quickly discovered that their differences yielded a successful electronic sound that thrived with creative contradictions. They decided to call themselves Seabound because of Frank's love of the ocean and the fact that Martin was born near the shore. The name also implies a ship leaving from a safe harbor into the unknown and sometimes treacherous seas, a metaphor for the band itself.)
( ;D --> "Everything" is the definitive collection of Seabound's work to date. The deluxe box set contains every Seabound track ever released (incl. rare demo material) spread across fourteen 180g heavyweight vinyl LPs and collected as lossless digital wav files on a DVD. The lavish set contains a 96-page hardcover book including lyrics, photos, artwork, personal notes from the band as well as a foreword by German cult radio host Ecki Stieg. Each box comes with a certificate of authenticity, hand-numbered and signed by Martin and Frank. "Everything" is strictly limited to 500 copies worldwide.)

( ;D --> Argentinian Mindshield with his latest 3 track EP ' Seres Nobles'. The EP opens with the title track 'Seres Nobles' which is a stripped back affair utilizing a hypnotizing groove as the basis of the track underpinned by a staccatoed bass that gradually eases its way to the breakdown of percussive elements before unleashing into a rising melodic hook intertwined with infectious rhythms.)
