Alfa Matrix to release Recoil Blu-ray 'A Strange Hour In Budapest' in EU/USAPosted on 11/05/12
The Belgian electronic music label Alfa Matrix (Front 242, Unter Null, Ayria, ...) will be handling the worldwide distribution of the upcoming Recoil Blu-ray "A Strange Hour In Budapest". Recoil is the project of Alan Wilder, formerly of Depeche Mode.
"A Strange Hour" was presented during 2010/2011 in 52 cities across the world as part of the "Selected Events" tour to celebrate 25 years of the Recoil project. The Blu-ray features the second and last full show of 2010, held in Budapest at the beautiful newly-renovated Szikra venue.
The performance was filmed using the latest high-definition technology in order to capture the event in its full glory. For this (with the help of the local promoters), the team from Umatik was recruited, headed up by director Attila ('Atus') Herkó, and in a similar way to the stage projections, Recoil collaborated remotely on the editing - Alan Wilder gave feedback to rough edits which Atus sent to him whilst Paul Kendall and Alan simultaneously worked on the surround sound mix. Attila's film is nothing less than stunning and offers a captivating and exhilarating document of "A Strange Hour".

From June 1st, Alfa Matrix will be accepting pre-orders for the "A Strange Hour In Budapest" Blu-ray from this website. The release will be presented in a deluxe DVD-sized 6 panel digi-pack with reinforced slipcase, containing a 170gm 16-page booklet packed with information and photo manipulations. The first 1000 copies will be individually hand-stamped/numbered and the disc will also feature extra promotional films and live projections. All store on-line orders will be dispatched with an exclusive code to receive downloadable extras such as a pdf art booklet with extra pages, a soundtrack sampler, Recoil 'live' photographs and project wallpapers.
At a later stage the release will be made available worldwide via different online outlets and shops.
This will be Blu-ray only format in order to preserve the best image quality possible. If you haven't upgraded to Blu-ray yet, now is the time to do so!
