(By Elise Din) You have sampling and sampling. In the industrial scene it's quite common to sample quite a lot but most bands re-use the sample in such way that the original source is unrecognizable. Not so with the Italian hard style duo Clockartz who nicked a complete chorus from the a cappella version of the track "Virtual Gods" by Belgian electropop act Psy'Aviah for their new single "Vile Nature" out on the dutch label The Magic Show. The original Psy'Aviah version can be found on the "Ok / Virtual Gods" EP. The band didn't mention where they got the sample from, but just used it as main theme throughout 'their' track.
Hear for yourself. The version as nicked by Clockartz and below the original version by Psy'Aviah. Alfa Matrix, the label of Psy'Aviah didn't want to comment on the news, but you can be pretty sure that they'll have a talk with the Dutch label and their Italian act concerning this rather very liberal use of samples.

Cult producer John Fryer (Depeche Mode, NIN, Dead Can Dance, This Mortal Coil, ...) has launched a brand new project, called Silver Ghost Shimmer, with vocalist Pinky Turzo. You can already hook up with the duo on Facebook. They duo formed the band back in 2013 and have been busily working away creating an album called "Soft Lading".
A 1st track "Soft Landing" will be available on Bandcamp from 30th October on. The sound of Silver Ghost Shimmer is inspired from the great vocal groups of the 60s like The Shangri Las and 'the musical approach of a gun swinging, wig wearing wall of sound producer with a twist of Glamour and Decay to their Sugar Coated Noise Pop Couture' as John Fryer puts it. We'll inform you once the single is out! (...)

A while back we talked about a campaign some a-ha fans had launched to get the other a-ha albums reissued as well in the way the first 2, "Hunting High and Low" from 1985 and "Scoundrel Days", were released in 2010 by Warner Brothers/Rhino. It seems that that campaign at least triggered the attention from Warner Brothers because we have been told that 2015 will probably see the albums "Stay on these roads" (1988), "East of the sun, West of the moon" (1990) and "Memorial beach" (1993) each re-released as a deluxe 2CD set.
And that's not all, a "Hunting high and low" 5CD boxset would also be in the making plus a book and a remix album. We haven't received any further details so far but will update the story when we get some. (...)
