Here’s a release we have been looking forward a lot! After some compilation appearances – such as our very own “Face The Beat 6” compilation – plus a collaboration with 808 Dot Pop on the “Cubic Temperature” album, the time has come for Franky Deblomme aka Cubic to launch the first release with his new project.
On the debut EP “Alphabet Hymn” (available now on Bandcamp) you’ll discover some vintage Düsseldorf synth influences next to Berlin techno, 90’s Manchester rave, EBM and the typical Belgian club sound style. Expect typical Belgian after-club sound including also a succinct usage of the female voice.
All of the material was recorded in Deblomme’s Bong 13 studio, using only hardware synths and effects. “An addiction that cannot be replaced by software synths”, adds Franky Deblomme.
This 5-track EP also features a remix by label mates 808 Dot Pop remixing the song “F”.

And here’s the exclusive cut the project did for “Face The Beat 6”.
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. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. 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 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
