Soil Records lands in France for its 15th release, 4 tracks distributed on 2 sides, one for the French group “Blind Delon” and the other for the French EBM artist IV Horsemen.
Influenced from bands such as Suicide, D.A.F and the early UK electronic scene, Absolute Body Control was formed in Belgium back in 1980, influencing and inventing genres ever since and achieving an underground cult following that strongly resists nowadays. After releasing a 7″, several tapes and contribute to many compilations worldwide, the band members went separate ways, with Dirk Ivens and Eric van Wonterghem finding success in other influential acts such as the Klinik, Dive, Block 57, S/HE, MOTOR!K, Sonar, Monolith and Insekt. After a very long break re-formed again and released “Lost & Found”, “Tapes 81-89” and “Wind[re]wind”, which contains newly recorded versions of their best tracks. Following these releases, they have returned in 2010 with the albums “Shattered Illusion” and “Mindless Intrusion”, a whole new set of classic tracks but featuring modern sound recording techniques. In 2016 “Forbidden Games” has been released, a selection of compilation tracks that points to the early roots of electronic pop and industrial. In 2020, 16 artists from around the globe pays this deserved tribute to one of the most influential minimal synth bands of all times.
Blind Delon debuted back in 2016 with Edouard EP. After a sold out and a lot of love and great acceptance of specialized press the french duo presents 4 new remixes of the main track Edouard signed by Kareem, Synths Versus Me, I Hate Models and Violet Poison.
The acclaimed debut of one of the most surprising new projects of the very active french scene. The one man project of Mathis Kolkoz from Toulouse will delight any modern era synth wave post-punk connoisseur with rude analog synths, simple drums and effected guitars over Mathis mesmerizing voice. Drvg Cvltvre joined the party with a crazy old school acid version of “Alcoolemie”.
