Yet another pre-Front 242 project is being resurrected and released on vinyl: Daniel B. Prothèse – listen here
We already informed you a few days ago that the pre-Front 242 project Underviewer was back alive (and there is more news on this duo coming up too), but today – a little earlier than the Alfa Matrix label had expected – the news broke that Daniel B. Prothèse is to release a massive vinyl sized boxset, “Überlastung”, including a 12” Vinyl, a 7” Vinyl and a double-CD.
The boxset is strictly limited to 300 copies worldwide (and that’s what one call really limited). The 2 vinyls included are “Spannung” (clear orange colour 12”) and “Unterbrechung” (clear green colour 7”). Both vinyls feature exclusive material. Next to that there is also a standalone 2CD being released (without the vinyls that is).
Where to order?
The 2 formats can be ordered right here for the American market (You’ll get FREE Shipping on orders over $100), and right here for the EU market (add several items and pay less on shipping costs). If you want the audio from the 2CD set only, then you can also go to Bandcamp where the material can be ordered.
What can you expect soundwise ?
The release constitutes the very first full-length release by Daniel B.’s solo-project and you can expect minimal noise and randomly or lfo’s generated rhythmic electronic sound manipulations.
“The project started as noise for personal pleasure”, Daniel B. says. This release is a collection of tracks shaped and mixed between approximately 1995 and 2010. The recording process was one of voluntary limits, no use of midi, only analogue (some really old) sound generating equipment and sequencer, no more than 8 recorded tracks… and a few digitally mistreated drum sounds were also used, that’s all!” Daniel B. explains.
Vintage sound machines lovers will recognise noise bleeps generated by the following studio equipment all making a part of Daniel B.’s personal collection: formant modular, system 101-102, system 100M, roland se 505, boss rvb 100, moog voyager anniversary #614, electro harmonix sequencer drum, yamaha 40m #Z699, mfb synth II, Sherman filter model 1 # 909, arp odyssey…

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.
