Front 242 breaks into the TOP 10 best-selling releases on Bandcamp with free remix EP

The free Front 242 EP “Detox Static” is breaking all records so it seems. The official best-selling TOP 10 on Bandcamp reveals that Front 242 has landed on the number 6 spot across all categories. In the electronic music category the “Detox Static” EP even sits at number 4 and this after just a few days. The band easily repeats this way what they did in the Summer of 2015 with the free download single “Lovely Day (Remastered) / Take One (RadicalG Mix)”.

Another release which is still going strong on Bandcamp and this 1 month (!) after being released is our very own free ebm/industrial compilation “Face The Beat: Session 3” which is on number 16 in the list of ‘bestselling’ electronic releases on the popular music download website (you can download it here).

‘Bestselling’ may sound weird knowing that both releases are free downloads, and in the case of the charity compilation  “Face The Beat: Session 3” even holding mostly unknown bands. But both releases are apparently appreciated by a lot of people resulting in a rather huge number of donations.

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.

The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
