..BOY Records was founded by Michael Zosel back in 1987 but it was after a few releases that he started to work with producer Arno Müller. "Brian" by Absurd was the first techno release on the label and a great success in the German techno scene. The cooperation continued with singles by Hypnopedia and New Scene that worked very well and put the name of BOY Records in the charts and clubs all around Germany and abroad. In 1990 another massive success came with the single "Kennedy" by Deep Thought and since there the label did not stop to release hit after hit by lot of names like Time Modem, "O", Cybex Factor, Sonic System, Moskwa TV, MCL and lot more.

"Timeless Technology 1988-1991" compiles a selection of classic tekkno traxx released on label's most fruitful years...

Vomito Negro is the mythical EBM-industrial act formed in Belgium in 1983. The band has a vast discography that started with a self-titled EP in 1985 and continued with diverse releases on renowned labels like KK Records, Antler-Subway and more recently on Out of Line and Scanner.

Vomito Negro's musical approach, essentially based on the European "Industrialist" tradition, takes a different angle on every record with synthesized psychodramas that range from danceable to contemplative, from instrumental and ambient to voice-ridden and brutal.

The new album “Entitled” was created with unreleased tracks from the early 80’s. All songs were re-arranged and re-recorded with the use of original vintage hardware synthesizers, sequencers and drum machines.

not sure this counts; it's more of a proto-rave track really, but anyway...


^^ cool. Definitely ravey builds in the tune.

Perturbator is doing some good stuff. I'm very impressed. Many different ideas, expressions and influences at play here. A project that can fit into many perspectives. Its interesting how current younger, producers are interpreting dark electronic influences. Very well done imo. Interesting remix collaborations as well, with offerings from Pig Destroyer, HEALTH, Author & Punisher, and a Cult Of Luna / Julie Christmas, Perturbator remix to cap it all off. Not a bad run for 2021 no doubt.

As posted elsewhere, while working this past weekend, our Halloween morning soundtrack started with Front 242 "Tyranny for You" lp, and I also recommended Perturbator, an excellent compliment to classic Front 242 atmospheres. Extremely fitting! Smile "Lustful Sacraments" lp, definite 2021 highlight release for me.

21:34 Depeche Mode - Shout
34:42 Yazoo - Situation (Rex the Dog DJ set)

Two Fad Gadget tracks (Back to Nature, Life on the Line) & Depeche Mode's Puppets (Röyksopp remix) have been removed due to copyright reasons.

It all started with the last minute info I was given on the 2nd day of the festival. Unwritten in the original programme I found out that Daniel Miller was to play a DJ set after Martin Gore’s. However his set was only available to those who had premium tickets. Valery, a good mate of mine who was leaving for the day found out that I didn’t have one so he gave his pass to me. Mr, you are my true hero!

Having missed his set the night before I rushed to the Studio Theatre as soon as Martin was done. Fortunately the door was still open. So I made it to the front row and took out my camcorder instantly. Luckily it had just started with what sounded like an opening track by NON or TG (?). On stage Daniel was wearing a Lacoste polo shirt as always, his signature outfit since many years. It was surreal to see the man who discovered Depeche Mode signing iconic bands like Fad Gadget, DAF, etc literally standing a few feet away spinning the soundtrack of my life.

Consisting of the likes of early Mute songs his set was simple and inviting. He looked laidback, sipping a drink and giving a subtle look at the crowd from time to time. Unlike other DJ’s who meticulously craft bits and pieces into a coherent live set his style was quite basic. He basically stood by the console a.k.a. MacBook pushing the keys mostly when it was time for a new track. He didn't add any effects like Martin had done a few hours earlier (or so it seemed). Listening to various remixes he has done to other artists though (Nitzer Ebb “Lightning Man”, Chris & Cosey “Synaesthesia” etc) it was obvious the subtleness played a big part in his approach to music and this set was no exception. Subtle and minimal, less is more - for me that’s how I have always seen him. Oh and it was casual too. It was almost as if you are invited to a friend’s house and he picks up his favourite records and plays endlessly while talking about music. I guess this honesty and friendliness were also the keys of the evening, where he presented songs that meant something to him not only as a label owner but as a music fan. Undoubtedly it was also the songs that meant so much to us. One might wonder if this is the true definition of “house music”… Anyway the result was spot-on. For anyone who grew up with Mute in the 80’s it was pure nostalgia. All in all how often does it happen in your life - a man shakes hands with unknown lads from Basildon a.k.a. suburb without a written contract and then he would go on to make history, shaping the entire soundtrack of your life of the past 30+ years? Kudos to Mr. Miller!

So it ended. The evening to remember for good. Glad I had a camcorder with me and managed to document the set (without the tape running out!). Also thankful to Valery who gave his precious ticket just to let me enjoy the rest of the evening. The film actually suffers from a battery change during Dreaming of Me, but I filled the gap with another snippet of the show to give a good flow. Hopefully it doesn’t affect your listening experience. It’s also shaky at times but it’s because I couldn’t help dancing my arse off lol

I also filmed Rex The Dog who played shortly after Daniel, another cracking one with plenty of Mute spirit. It will be available soon.

Warming up to the new Noise Unit "Deviator" lp as I post. Production choices get cleaner and cleaner, where as most recent ebm influenced by early Noise Unit / Front Line Assembly, etc only tries to mimic their late 80's and 90's material. I guess that could be the legacy appeal of Front Line Assembly related music this far on, they don't fall back on trying to recreate retro sounding production. Keep trying new things, production styles & gear all the time.

I like the straight up 4/4 beats in some of the tunes. "Fargo Field" has a dub techno, tech house feel even. Works very well. More focussed than recent FLA albums imo. Any recent ebm fan should have a listen here. Noise Unit, originals schooling us again decades later. All the original Noise Unit releases from 1989 onward also available on the bandcamp.

Noise Unit, "Deviator" lp, September 2021


New Rhys Fulber lp "Brutal Nature", November 26, 2021

Blush Response, Sound and Structure, Fulber interview from August 2021 ** 34:10 mins in the interview, cool mentions of early 90's Hard Club (London) encounters with Pete Shelley, Martin Gore, and playing a 1991 NYC show with Neubauten, Cabaret Voltaire. Childhood memories of seeing Kraftwerk with his parents in Vancouver. wtf. Good stuff.


Rippin compilations via queer subversive, Gegen Records (Berlin, Germany)


Blu Anxxiety is always a good time. Like Anasazi before for straight up NYC death rock, I'm a huge fan. Really liking the recent, cryptic goth, future garage style productions via Blu Anxxiety band member, Justin Schmidt, as X Harlow.

X Harlow "Cathars" lp, & Blu Anxxiety, 2021 year highlights for sure.
