Front 242 member Daniel B. is back under the Daniel B. Prothèse umbrella for two new albums to be released simultaneously in a unique packaging, in the very same way the previous “HöllEKtroKraut / HellEctroKraut” was released. The new releases will be out on the 5th of April.

Daniel B.: “With “One to One” and “Xaosonix” you get two titles that look like unfinished palindromes, everything suggests a mutating process that is still in progress and to which one can witness progression and interferences, interconnections and ramifications.”

Although both albums were recorded over the same period of time, each of them includes its own ‘mutagen agents’ as Daniel B. calls it, which are being responsible for many variations as on the track “OctoCollision” to which “One to One” offers 3 different versions. This is a process which first appeared on the “Chzwaartz Metaal” project (available here, including a few copies from the super limited vinyl edition) and which is this time again a well recognizable trademark.

Daniel B. furthermore explains: “”One to One” and “Xaosonix” are also two mutant records where the drum tracks lead electronic multiplied compositions, where old school EBM DNA replication fits into the best of the twenty-first century technologies.”

Pre-listening party in Belgium

A pre-listening party of these 2 new albums (plus 99.9’s “Silex” – but more info on that tomorrow) will take place tomorrow, Thursday April 4, at 8:30 PM in the Cafe De Oude Tijd, Leuvensestraat 23, 3200 Aarschot (BE).

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.
