2-track Karl Bartos vinyl single with 50th issue Electronic Sound

The Electronic Sound magazine is celebrating its 50th issue with a special vinyl package when you sign up to the magazine’s Bundle Subscription: 2 Karl Bartos tracks, “Without A Trace Of Emotion” and “Vox Humana”, packaged in a gatefold sleeve with a free poster, featuring the single’s sleeve artwork together with the entire text of the interview Karl Bartos gave in 2013 when the magazine launched. The 2 tracks are taken from the Karl Bartos album “Off the Record”, his second solo effort released on 15 March 2013, through Bureau B records. It featured Johnny Marr and Bernard Sumner as guest contributors and was Bartos’ first solo album in ten years, though the material on Off the Record predates that on 2003’s “Communication”. Speaking of which, do you own this “Communication” fanbox? Bartos left Kraftwerk in August 1990, reportedly frustrated at the band’s slow progress in their activities due to the increasingly perfectionist attitude of founding members Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider.

Born in New York (USA), but now based in Berlin (Germany) for years Adam Mitchell aka Adam X is a renowned and talented producer/DJ/label owner. He’s one of those visionary artists who in my eyes always has symbolized the electronic sound of tomorrow. His music always has been a mix between EBM and techno, which sometimes has been defined as industrial-techno. Adam is involved in multiple projects like Traversable Wormhole, ADMX-71, Mass-X-Odus ao, but Adam X remains the main project. Late 2018 Adam-X released his sixth full length album “Recon Mission” on his own label Sonic Groove. The work is a new masterpiece and one of the best electro productions from 2018; a good reason for an interview. (Courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) Q: You’ve released tons of EP’s, but “Recon Mission” also is your seventh full length album as Adam X. What means this new work in your personal discography and what inspired you (sound-wise) to compose this album? Adam: The album inspiration comes from a few unrelated & related topics. The album titled track “Recon Mission” is about a reconnaissance mission against government authorities. The official video on Youtube goes deeper into the topic and what the lyrics […]

Die Form see reissue ‘Some experiences with shock’ on vinyl + new album in the making

Die Form have a lot going on for 2019. The duo are preparing a new album, several compilations and re-issues of rare and unreleased works (music and images). The first of those re-issues is “Some experiences with shock” which is being released on vinyl as well. Originally released in 1983, it has been remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios / Berkeley from the original tapes. The first part of the album was recorded in a studio with analog equipment, while the second side holds improvisations from new digital synthesizers. Note that the follow-up to “Some experiences with shock” (1986’s “Poupée Mécanique”) took a direction towards a more commercial sound. You can still order the CD version right here.

The Young Gods return with ‘Data Mirage Tangram’ on double vinyl (CD included)

(Picture by Mehdi Benkler) Out on February 22 is the newest The Young Gods album “Data Mirage Tangram” via the Two Gentlemen label. A first single “Figure sans nom” (check it out below) was released already and a 2nd single with video (“Tear Up The Red Sky”) will be out in a few days. For the die-hard fans, the upcoming album can be ordered as a double vinyl set (including a CD). The studio album is the first one since “Everybody Knows” was released 9 years ago. It also was a period of artistic confusion that followed Al Comet’s departure and his replacement with the original bandmember, Cesare Pizzi. “Data Mirage Tangram” was created by Franz Treichler (lyrics, guitar, electronics), Cesare Pizzi (sampling, electronics) and Bernard Trontin (drums, percussion). The Young Gods are a Swiss industrial rock band from Fribourg which formed in 1985. The band’s original lineup consisted of a trio composed by a vocalist, a keyboardist/sampler operator, and a drummer. Their instrumentation often includes sampled electric guitars, drums, keyboards, and other samples. They have been very influential to artists such as David Bowie (just listen to “Outside”), Pitchshifter, Mike Patton, Sepultura, The Edge from U2 and so on.
