Playing around some EBM oldschool beats with sounds from “Monark”, “Battery” and “Absynth” (KOMPLETE 9) on the MASCHINE STUDIO.
“Let it be known today” is the brand new EP from Belgo-French outfit Növö aka Laurent Boudic. The track is taken from Boudic’s recent 4th studio full length CD entitled “Zeitgeist”. “Let It Be Known Today” is already the second EP released from this album. Says the label: “It again drops you in the old classic EBM / New Wave era with vintage analogue synth sequences, electronic bleeps, pulsing bass lines and prominent vocals with that little French accent and melancholic cold touch clearly evoking the cult 80’s act Trisomie 21.”
“Let It Be Known Today” comes in 4 new versions, a 7 inch and a reconstructed one by the band itself plus an extended Kraftwerkian rework with vocoder and floating synth layers by Belgian label-mates of Metroland as well as a darkish remix by Flood Veyor.

British EBM pioneers Click Click are going to release “Those Nervous Surgeons“, their first album with new studio material in 17 years. (Note that a song with that title was already released on “Experiments” via Rotorbabe Recordings in 2012.) In addition to that, Adrian Smith had the time to finish his debut novel “The Eradication Of Hate”, which will come with the limited edition(300 copies). The novel ‘mirrors the dystopian themes of the new record and addresses rampant censorship in an emerging English surveillance state’, so Dependent informs us.
“Those Nervous Surgeons” used to be the name of the brothers’ very first band project (which formed in 1976 with bassist Tim Wilson) before they opted for the monicker Click Click. “We Have Come Full Circle”, explains Derek Smith. The album is expected to sound ‘absolutely retro’. The release date is June 6th in Europe and four days later in the US.

PIAS has just made public the video for the track, by the great Anton Corbijn. Rumour has it that the director misheard the track title as ‘egghunter’, which explains the grainy footage of a fruity lady being chased around wearing an egg on her head, eggs falling, and so on.

After a couple of years working on other projects Steelberry Clones returns with a new single titled “Sweet Sexy Virgin”. This is the first release from their upcoming album called “Retrosonic Voices” that will be released in Q1 next year.
The new single features Adelinne as guest vocalist and the song deals with a hot topic – women trafficking. Steelberry Clones has always tried to do a blend of music that deals with subjects that concerns us, paired with retrospective quests into things that intrigues them, such as space, 1950’s, technology advancements, historical events and personal experiences. The new single combines hard beats, 8bit sounds, massive synth basses and the strong voice of Adelinne, to create something that pushes the envelope in modern electronic pop music.
The new release “Sweet sexy virgin” will be accompanied by yet one other single that will be released before Christmas. The new album “Retrosonic Voices” is due in Q1-2013 next year and will combine the best of modern electronic pop music with old-school sounds from the past 30 years of electronic music.
Artist: S T E E L B E R R Y C L O N E S – featuring Adelinne
Title: Sweet sexy virgin
Album: Retrosonic Voices (Q1-2013) – will be released on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and Limited edition hard copy
Label: Stereoklang Produktion
