Portion Control

Portion Control is a British electronic and industrial band formed in London in 1980. The band calls its music style electropunk or hard rhythmic electronics. They are one of the most famous obscure electronic music acts in the world and have been honored and name checked by the likes of Depeche Mode, Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, NiN and Orbital.

Portion Control is now highly active and creating innovative, uncompromising electronic audio. After their return in 2004 they have self stream of critically acclaimed CDs and EPs, as well as actively presenting their live transmissions at festivals such as the Tinnitus Festival (UK), Reverse Forward festival (Germany), Wave Gothic Treffen (Germany) and the BodyBeats Festival (Belgium), just to name a few.

After the successful release of CROP in 2009, the men return this year with all new material and shows that Portion Control is still breaking new ground and opening new doors in electronic music. Violently Alive blends some of the more traditional sounds with the new more aggressive dance style.

Decoded Feedback

A difficult half-decade lay behind Decoded Feedback. After their album release "Combustion" in 2005, the Canadian duo had to venture forth along a twisted alley full of private setbacks. But as is often the case, personal crises can trigger the strongest creative energies. Crackling with such renewed powers, Decoded Feedback now unleash “Aftermath”, an utterly remarkable and intense album.

We stand in awe of their unmistakable combination of pulsating basslines and angelic synth-melodies (“Silent Killer“, “Proteus Syndrome“) and nostalgic glimpses to the old school Dark Wave of the Eighties (“Dark Reflections“, “Shelter Me”), as well as Electropop (“Affliction”). Full-bodied and varied, “Aftermath” stands between feelings and moods with unexpected sonic landscapes. Never before could it be said that Decoded Feedback has been this melodically oriented as we can now in 2010. Even in this project's 17th year of existence, there is no lack of innovation or variation. It should also now be obvious to everyone that this project, is in the top league of sound engineering, as is the case with most ensembles in the Canadian electronic scene.

Aftermath” will make faithful fans discover exactly what they expected to find on Decoded Feedback's latest album and will undoubtedly be won over by its enriching new influences. It is also certain to gain the admiration and accolade of new listeners unfamiliar with the project and in doing so, will bolster its popularity by several more orders of magnitude.

Abstract Decay

Die Inspiration für das Musikprojekt Abstract Decay resultiert aus einem weiten Spektrum angefangen von elektronischer Musik bis hin zu Underground Rock. Die Musik bezieht sich auf die Wurzeln des Industrials unter Benutzung von modernem Equipment. Als Kontroverse hierzu verwendet Abstract Decay Musikelemente, die ungewöhnlich für Dark Industrial sind.

Fluktuierende Drum Elemente überlagert von klassischen EBM Bass-Lines bilden die Grundlage der Songs. Die düsteren elektronischen Klänge werden abgerundet von elektrischen Bass Gitarren, effektbeladene Vocals formieren die finale Identität der Songs.
