The 11th track on our free (or pay-what-you-want to support our charity work) download compilation “Face The Beat: Session 5” is by the Argentina based electro-industrial act Bloque Del Sur. If you want some oldschool Front 242 sounds (think “Kamfbereit”), then you should definitely check this one out!
Bloque Del Sur debuted in 2016 with the 4-track EP “Periferia”. It was released on the Pakapi Records label and was the third of the Industria Tropical series of EPs by artists who published on the Industria Tropical compilation. You’ll recognize the band’s signature sound: vhs samples, cutting synth layers and dark beats or exactly what Front 242 sounded back in 1986. Since their debut they have been featured on a few compilations, and right now they get the full treatment on our own compilation.
For the fans, Pakapi Records is a record label based in Argentina which focuses on South American artists.
You can listen to “Sistema De Autoprotección” right below.

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. Thank you. The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
