Those present at the Front 242 shows in Brussels already noticed it when checking the flyer inside the free CD compilation “Sounds From The Matrix 019” which was handed out for free: there is a brand new “Matrix Downloaded” available via Bandcamp, the 7th already.
The free download label compilation “Matrix Downloaded 007” holds 46 free tracks from bands signed to the Belgian label. The download is yours for free (or pay-what-you-want) on the label’s Bandcamp download page. You can also still find the 6 previous editions in case you were trapped in another universe for the last few years and did not catch these yet!
The 200 minute-plus compilation reflects the label’s music repertoire and impressive artist roster in the full-force of its diversity also reminding us that Alfa Matrix is one of the very few indie electro labels who still dare to scout new talents and to inject new blood into the scene while others would definitely choose to sleep on their laurels while focusing on their sure values of established bands.
As far as music style goes, you can expect EBM, synth pop, industrial, electronic, indie rock, nu electro, dark elektro, avant-garde, goth metal, wave and techno house. Here is the full track list:

Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute.
