German synth/EBM act And One plans 3 new albums in 2014

January 16, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

andone_bandpic1

Steve Naghavi from And One has announced 3 new albums to be released under the And One flag. 3 because the material recorded sounds too diverse to put on one album so Steve explains. So, if all materializes – not really sure with And One as the past has proven – you should get “Magnet” (melancholic synth pop), “Propeller” (old school EBM) and “Achtung 80″ (80s pop) delivered somewhere in 2014 (2015 or even later).

As it seems Naghavi also works on 2 more albums, a schlager one (“Meine Träume”) and a country one (“My first guitar”).

German bodypop act And One calls it quits – end of the road

September 27, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

According to various sources and frequent rumors And One has called it quits. Label changes, fights between past and present band members finally made Steve take the decision to through ion the towel. Here’s a text from Side-Line exploring the situation further – too bad for a band that had so many good EBM / synth pop tracks in their portfolio:

Whereas the band insinuated earlier this week that they would sign to Out Of Line, it now seems that And One will simply stop all activity and cease to exist. The news is also confirmed by other scene magazines, such as Sonic Seducer which reports “Schluss, aus, vorbei: And One lösen sich auf”.

And since Steve thinks we can’t read German, here are his words: “Für And One besteht kein Bedarf mehr, weder bei einer neuen Plattenfirma zu unterschreiben, noch für And One ein eigenes Label zu gründen. Die letzten Werke lassen wir einfach nur pressen und verkaufen sie selber auf Konzerten und online oder so. Mal sehn. Scheiß auf Charts oder Konventionen. And One ist durch mit der Branche.” Even our colleagues at Sonic Secucer interpretate this as the end.

The end of the band was written in the stars after endless battles with labels and (ex-members), ego-tripping ramblings on the bands blog attacking other artists, doll fights, plus the odd cat fight between frontman Steve Naghavi and Side-Line.

And One was a German New Wave, synthpop and EBM band founded by Steve Naghavi and Chris Ruiz in 1989. The band’s first release was “Metal Hammer”. On June 4, 2011 Chris Ruiz and Gio van Oli announced they were leaving And One and formed a new band entitled PAKT. It got the PAKT members lots of public shouting and denigrating comments from Steve Naghavi who increasingly seemed to have lost the pedals. The band’s last album was 2012′s “S.T.O.P.”

A couple of their most recent releases can be found below:

New video from And One – Aigua

While And One will probably soon announce its departure from SPV to launch the next material on the band’s own label, it also found the time to announce a brand new video: “Aigua”, which is Catalan for ‘water’. The video was directed by Adolf Steinhimmel.

The track does not feature And One’s Steve Naghavi but just guest singer Vivi on vocals. Nice song, nice video.

And One are back after a turbulent fall

December 5, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

After a turbulent time with the band, a partially interrupted tour and another mess, it now seems German And One again have found the spark. The new single “Back Home” will land in January and includes three versions of the title track and the b-side “Wounds”.

Front man and singer Steve Naghavi has again recruited the former members Joke Jay and Rick Shah, after Chris Ruiz and Gio van Oli left the band (to form the EBM duo PAKT) during the summer.

After having endured some criticism for the latest album “Tanzomat,” which also was the last thing that was released via the band’s former record label Out Of Line, you have found a new home on the SPV’s electronic sublabel Synthetic Symphony.

“Back Home” is released on January 23 via SPV / Synthetic Symphony.

Tracklist

  1. Back Home (Club Mix)
  2. Wounds
  3. Back Home (Mixed Conditioner)
  4. Back Home (Berlin Mixer)

PAKT (former And One members) releases new material after the break with Naghavi

July 17, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

As we reported on earlier Chris Ruiz and Gio van Oli have left Steve Naghavi alone at the helm of And One in early June – so now it is time for the two renegade members Chris Ruiz and Gio van Oli to debut their new EBM project PAKT.

The Berlin-based duo is assigned to And One’s former record label Out Of Line and the first single release “Freiheit” lands in the middle of August.

In addition to the b-side “Angriff” and the original version of the title track also includes two remixes from the record company colleagues in Formalin and Funker Vogt’s Gerrit Thomas. In addition to this another version signed by Robert Görla (better known from DAF).

“Freiheit” is released August 12th via Out Of Line.

Track listing:

  1. Freiheit
  2. Angriff
  3. Freiheit (Robert Goerl Remix by Robert Goerl of DAF)
  4. Freiheit (Gummi-Drum-Remix by G.Thomas of Funker Vogt)
  5. Freiheit (Freiheit und Gerechtigkeit Rework by Formalin)

Will EBM act AND ONE survive this?

June 6, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Chris Ruiz and Gio van Oli have left And One. Here’s a translation of what they posted on Facebook: “We made a decision. After years with AND ONE we, Chris and Gio, will run another path. In the end the attitude towards music and life were too different. If all is only about being replaceable and functionless, we can’t work with that. We see AND ONE as something different as it currently is. We want and have to move. We are not mainstream – we are EBM!”

The two musicians have now formed the Berlin based band PAKT, which according to the statement above probably will be a pure EBM act with the baseline ‘Two simple guys just wanna play with you’. You can find PAKT on Facebook at www.facebook.com/PAKTofficial .

Along with the link to their new project the duo also posted a goodbye video on YouTube. You can watch it here or after the jump. Notice that the song played on this goodbye video is And One’s “Playing Dead”.

And One in the meanwhile started the Unheilig support tour today with Rick Shah and Joke Jay returning to join Steve Naghavi on stage.
