Apoptygma Berzerk

Apop_logoOne of my favourite artists to play in the car is Apoptygma Berzerk… the Norwegian artist who was responsible for taking EBM to another stage during the 1990’s and early 2000’s…

Starting out with a sound heavily inspired by classic EBM Apoptygma Berzerk re-defined the genre for a new generation on the albums ‘Welcome To Earth” and “Harmonizer”… and he even bridged the gap between the dark scene and mainstream dance culture… mostly due to the remix of “Kathy’s Song” by Ferry Corsten…

After “Harmonizer” Apoptygma moved onwards to a more rock orientated sound and I must confess I never really got into that… but last year he released a 12″ with pure electronic music again and his older releases were re-issued on tape (the vinyl versions of the cd’s were re-issued a few years ago)… in interviews he talked about moving again more into electronic music for his next album as well… so I am curious about that…

In the meantime I am super proud to release an exclusive remix Apoptygma did for Tobias Bernstrup… this remix is featured on the upcoming “Romanticism” LP plus 12″ on Gooiland Elektro in collaboration with Tonight Records (Tobias Bernstrup’s own label)…

This remix is a dance track in the true meaning of the word… and a perfect mix of the decadent synth pop sound of Tobias Bernstrup and the “Harmonizer” modern day EBM / future pop period of Apoptygma Berzerk…

Tonight Radio Resistencia with live Former Descent

IFMTonight (monday 2nd of February) from 21:00 hour (CIT/CET) onwards Radio Resistencia will be narrowcasted by Intergalactic FM on IFM1.

We are talking about episode 50 here… a 3 hour show featuring a live set by Former Descent who is doing his new beat/EBM/italo inspired thing as recently displayed on his Gooiland Elektro 12″ release.

Next to that dj Alacidus spins vinyls and I am doing that too as dj M. My set will feature some dark elektro and dark techno inspired stuff from the 1980’s up to now…

Here is one Former Descent track to get in the mood for tonight…
