Side-Line Music Awards are now ready, each year Side-Line nominates the best songs, bands and acts in the electro, synth, EBM etc space and now the final results are here, as voted by the Side-Line readers. And it seems Recoil got a fair share of the prices
The results of the Side-Line Music Awards 2010 are in. Yes, it did take us a few days more than we had originally planned. But then again, we never imagined getting stuck in London and Brussels the past week due to the unexpected harsh winter conditions circling over Europe. We spent the last two days counting the votes and deleting the invalid ones. But before we give the results, we really want to thank all those readers who have cast their votes in the past two election rounds. You were among the 39,203 people (!!) to have cast a valid vote. That is an all-time record for Side-Line.

The Danish city Århus hosts the Recession Festival again on October 8-9. The program 2010 includes Marc Almond, Front Line Assembly, Portion Control, Rummelsnuff featuring Claus Larsen, Necro Facility, Kite, Andreas Tilliander and Familjen. More acts will be announced shortly.
Dependent has announced that Mind.In.A.Box will do its first full-length tour as support for the 19-show European leg of Front Line Assembly’s current world tour.
Mind.In.A.Box released their debut “Lost Alone” in 2004. The follow-up “Dreamweb” marked the real breakthrough for the Austrian duo, showcasing a combination of electronic styles and influences from technopop to EBM to trance and beyond. The following albums “Crossroads” and “R.E.T.R.O”, along with the single “8 Bits” were also well received, but the duo did not perform live until last summer, when after a year of preparations, they appeared as a five-piece at the Arvika Festival.
Since then the band has played live periodically, surfacing at the Norwegian Elektrostat Festival and Berlin’s E-Tropolis.
