A Split Second – Flesh [DR013]

Official 2022 Reissue. A Split Second’s cult coldwave EP Flesh was dropped back in 1986 on Antler Records. The band of Marc Heyndrickx, and Peter Bonne (aka Chrismar Chayell) only formed a year earlier but his debut single made a huge impact and has become a real classic of the EBM and wave world ever since. Numerous albums followed well into the 90s but rarely did the pair ever top this – the jerking rhythms, ravey electronics and retro-future chords all resonating as much with audiences now as they did back then.

The Twins – Face To Face / Ballet Dancer [DR007]

TWINS, The - Face To Face Heart To Heart

2021 Official 12″ release featuring two big anthems by 80’s german synth-pop duo The Twins featured Sven Dohrow and guitarist and drummer Ronnie Schreinzer. They knocked out a load of albums in the very early 80s and amongst many big club tunes came they rmost weeks known ‘Face To Face – Heart To Heart.’ It’s a tune that has been covered many times in the years since but you can’t really beat the original. Here it gets served up as a Special dance version with its retro-future arps and glistening Casino chords making for a nice stomping synth-disco vibe. On the flip is a long version of ‘Ballet Dancer’ that is even more camp and euro-centric.
