Flavor of the Week #31

Gary Numan
( ;D --> One of the founding fathers of synth pop, Gary Numan’s influence extends far beyond his lone American hit, “Cars,” which still stands as one of the defining new wave singles. That seminal track helped usher in the synthpop era on both sides of the Atlantic, especially his native England, where he was a genuine pop star and consistent hitmaker during the early ’80s. Even after new wave had petered out, Numan’s impact continued to make itself felt; his dark, paranoid vision, theatrically icy alien persona, and clinical, robotic sound were echoed strongly in the work of many goth rock and (especially) industrial artists to come.)

Welt In Scherben - Thomas P. Heckmann
( ;D --> Keyfigure of early and contemporary german Techno, EBM-Techno and Acid, Thomas P. Heckmann has shaped the landscape of electronic music since the very beginning.)
Eisen Im Feuer

Multiple Man
( ;D --> New Metal, by Australian identical twin duo Multiple Man, has a lightness often absent from an otherwise harsh genre, boasting luxe melodies silky synths. With electronic choir voices that undulate over Sean Campion’s mixed-down vocals, “Power Fantasy” is pure nostalgic greatness, showcasing a dance sensibility that echoes the hot-blooded nature of mid-’80s Cabaret Voltaire. Complex, dexterous, dreamy, and hazy, it will make night crawlers want to emerge from their cavernous spaces and feel the golden warmth of the sun.)
New Metal

Phase Fatale
( ;D --> Phase Fatale delivers outright EBM influences and elegant post-punk with devious basslines. Sparely produced, Anubis slowly and meticulously builds to its conclusion rather than gasping to the finish line, demonstrating the incredible restraint and maturity Payne has developed.)

( ;D --> Industrial EBM Techno from Berlin.)

Over And Out
