"Recovery For You, Front 242 Tribute "
With the most upmost respect, the Alfa Matrix label family decided to close this birthday year in beauty by paying homage to this living legend. 32 label bands each covering one song from FRONT 242s impressive music repertoire, an influential work of pioneering electronic mastery on which creativity has steadily and genuinely been abound. Picking songs from the full discography of the band, from Geography to Pulse, we can only attest how ear-challenging the bands work has always been, constantly offering to us an inspiring look to the future of electronic music.
recovery >for you< is an exclusive tribute collection of 32 songs reflecting the Alfa Matrix band rosters high diversity. Besides solid remakes by other pure EBM heroes like ARMAGEDDON DILDOS, PLASTIC NOISE EXPERIENCE, ELM, KANT KINO or yet the labels new signing AD:KEY, we also see the harsher dark elektro clan attacking the F242 repertoire with figures like ALIEN VAMPIRES, CIRCUITO CERRADO vs. C-LEKKTOR, VENAL FLESH, ACYLUM, AVARICE IN AUDIO and TOTEM OBSCURA. Other female fronted acts like HELALYN FLOWERS and SIN.SIN both bring more tortured electric moments just like Norways ESSENCE OF MIND. From the minimal percolating bleeps of electronic acts like METROLAND, NÖVÖ or yet ELEKTROKLÄNGE to the more upbeat industrial techno dance tunes of KOMOR KOMMANDO, AYRIA, IMPLANT, NEIKKA RPM, XMH, AESTHETISCHE or yet the dance pop of Singapore duo COSMIC ARMCHAIR. Besides lush noir synth pop reworks by TECHNOIR, DIFFUZION, REGENERATOR and IMJUDAS (the impressive new project of Maxx from HELALYN FLOWERS), and icy modern elektro covers by THE PSYCHIC FORCE and other LLUMEN, while SAR INDUSTRY and SCHWARZBLUT add a more gothic oriented touch to the compilation.
Simply join the rhythm and enjoy these cover versions giving an all new sonic and emotional dimension to these FRONT 242 classic tunes including amongst others Headhunter, Happiness, Lovely Day, U-men, Commando Mix, Masterhit, No Shuffle, Tragedy for You, Take One, Funkhadafi, Moldavia, Operating Tracks, Dont Crash, Body To Body, Welcome To Paradise, and many more!
