V/A Front 242 tribute : Recovery for you - 2xCD V/A Front 242 tribute : Recovery for you - 2xCD  Ref: 21764 Music style: EBM – electro – synth pop - industrial

With “recovery >for you<”, the Alfa Matrix label is closing this double-celebration year 2016 in beauty. For its 15 th 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. What would electronic industrial music be without FRONT 242? Is it fair to say that many modern electro bands have a little FRONT 242 DNA? Are we all descendants?

“recovery >for you<” is an exclusive tribute collection of 32 songs reflecting the Alfa Matrix band roster's high diversity. Besides solid remakes by other pure EBM heroes like ARMAGEDDON DILDOS, PLASTIC NOISE EXPERIENCE, ELM, KANT KINO or yet the label's new signing AD:KEY, we also see the harsher dark elektro clan attacking the F242 repertoire with figures like ALIEN VAMPIRES, CIRCUITO CERRADO vs. C-LEKKTOR, VENAL FLESH, ACYLUM, AVARICE IN AUDIO and TOTEM OBSCURA. Other female fronted acts like HELALYN FLOWERS and SIN.SIN both bring more tortured electric moments just like Norway's ESSENCE OF MIND. From the minimal percolating bleeps of electronic acts like METROLAND, NÖVÖ or yet ELEKTROKLÄNGE to the more upbeat industrial techno dance tunes of KOMOR KOMMANDO, AYRIA, IMPLANT, NEIKKA RPM, XMH, AESTHETISCHE or yet the dance pop of Honk-Kong duo COSMIC ARMCHAIR. Besides lush noir synth pop reworks by TECHNOIR, DIFFUZION, REGENERATOR and IMJUDAS (the impressive new project of Maxx from Helalyn Flowers), and icy modern elektro covers by THE PSYCHIC FORCE and other LLUMEN, while STAR INDUSTRY and SCHWARZBLUT add a more gothic oriented touch to the cd.

Simply join the rhythm and enjoy these cover versions giving an all new sonic and emotional dimension to these FRONT 242 classic tunes including amongst others ‘Headhunter', ‘U-Men', ‘Happiness', ‘Lovely Day', ‘Commando Mix', ‘Masterhit', ‘No Shuffle', ‘Tragedy for You', ‘Take One', ‘Funkhadafi', ‘Moldavia', ‘Operating Tracks', ‘Don't Crash', “Body to Body', ‘Welcome to Paradise', and many more! Listen carefully…
