I’ve long been a fan of Belgian Techno/EBM giants Front 242. I blogged a little bit about that once before (here). Front 242 enjoy a massive cult following – and have done for some 30-plus years – but are almost completely unknown in mainstream music circles. Anyway, I note the Alfa Matrix Bandcamp page is offering a couple of free tracks to download ahead of 242's acclaimed No Comment album getting a 2015 reissue/makeover.
Grab a copy of the remastered ‘Lovely Day’ and a remix of ‘Take One’ (click here).
There’s also a remix
competition on the go for anyone wanting to put their own signature on ‘Take
One’ – the Remix Kit is included in the download. This from the Alfa Matrix page:
FRONT 242 this time also challenges your
creative skills and opens a remix competition by including to this single a
remix kit for the classic track “Take One”. You can find the download link for
the remix kit in the PDF that is included in your download as bonus. FRONT 242
will select their 3 favourite remixes to be inserted in a second free download
single which will be released on August 30th! Deadline for the remix submission
(in non-mastered WAV 16bit format) is August 15th 2015, you can send your
submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org using dropbox or wetransfer!
Make sure to title your remix by adding your band/artist/DJ name to the WAV
file title that you will share with us...
