Electronically Yours: The ultimate Xmas present for electronic music lovers

December 2, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Right before Christmas a new and extremely rare electronic music album has hit the shelves.

It is a secret group on Facebook called Electronically Yours that has released an album featuring classic 70’s songs and remixed to fit an electronic audience of the 21st century. And it is not an anonymous bunch of musicians on this album – among the secret members you will find Joakim Montelius (Covenant) under his alter ego Tectonic Knights, Eddie Bengtsson with PAGE, Diskodiktator, computer and Steelberry Clones, to name but a few. To provide you with the right feeling of the album we give you Joakim’s post on the official Covenant Facebook page below, and if you are in Sweden on December 15th you can see Electronically Yours live on stage at ElectriXmas

Message from Joakim from Covenant:

So. X-mas is saved. See, I’m a member of a secret society called Electronically Yours. We are a bunch of (mostly) Swedish geeks and electronic music aficionados. Some are famous, some are merely notorious. A few of us are both. A while back the Chairman of this obscure virtual tribe had an idea. A whim, actually, but through the means of great secrecy, clever masterminding, as well as gullible people willing to accept an unknown, non-negotiable missio

n from which there was no way to back out, the whim has now turned into the fulfilment of a rather daring project.

The idea was to turn a bunch of great ’70s hits by artists as diverse as Sweet, Slade, Hot Chocolate, Tom Jones, Curtis Mayfield and Deep Purple into modern, electronic interpretations. The results baffled us all. So we decided to make an album out of it and release it as a non-profit project and all proceeds will be given away to the Swedish charity “Musikhjälpen”.

And that’s why X-mas is saved: you get a great album (and I do not say that just because I’m on it as my alter ego Tectonic Knights, it really is an amazing collection of songs) PLUS a very large part of the money you pay for it goes to help people in dire need of it. That’s what I call a win-win arrangement.

You can hear snippets of the tracks and also a link to the webshop where you can pick up one of the remaining copies of the strictly limited CDs here:
