1 - FRONT 242 - PULSE (DELUXE) - (L+C) 
ALFA MATRIX


For the celebration of their 35th anniversary year of existence in 2016, Belgian electronic music pioneers FRONT 242 decided to re-release several of their albums together with Alfa Matrix, their partner in crime over the last 15 years now. These remastered versions showcase FRONT 242s innovative and unmatched sound in the best audio quality made possible by today's audio technology.For the occasion of the re-release of the "Pulse + Still & Raw" album, FRONT 242 also decided to release a deluxe collector box edition of " Pulse" (a judicious track-list selected by Daniel B. as a kind of DJ set.). The vinyl-sized carton box features a military camouflage design with a spotted varnish printed FRONT 242 logo and a die-cut "2" across the upper cover (once assembled with the two other limited collector box sets released for the anniversary series, you get the "2-4-2" cut across the 3 box sets). The " Pulse" anniversary collector box is strictly limited to 1242 copies and includes the following items:1 x FRONT 242 " Pulse" - Gatefold LP (black vinyl - 180 gr),1 x FRONT 242 " Pulse" - Carton Sleeve CD (same track list as the vinyl LP),1 x FRONT 242 live 2 (carton sleeve CD) ancienne belgique 89. front by front (A professionally mixed exclusive 15-track live recording from the bands concert at the Legendary Ancienne Belgique in Brussels - Belgium in 1989),1 x FRONT 242 lanyard (white & red printed on black),1 x laminated Pulse live pass,2 x FRONT 242 posters (315mm x 220mm),1 x V/A - Sounds From The Matrix 17 (carton sleeve CD)(An exclusive Alfa Matrix label compilation featuring 20 label mates of FRONT 242)."Pulse" was originally released in 2003 and is to date the last official studio album of FRONT 242. It gets marketed again this time as a double-CD with the "Still & Raw" Mini-Album as second disc.Back in 2003, this album really took the FRONT 242 fanbase by surprise, breaking 10 long years of studio silence (besides some side-projects and other live recordings), revealing something new, different and once again absolutely ear-challenging, offering an inspiring look to the future of electronic music. Taking things further and pushing the limits of their machines, the legendary FRONT 242 showed that it was time to move on and that repeating their famous 80s sound would have been unoriginal and in full contradiction with the bands adventurous core spirit. "Pulse" being another work of pioneering electronic mastery on which creativity is genuinely abound. A sophisticated album on which the 242 team manipulates their instruments with unmatched dexterity, implementing synths and breakbeats in a quite unique and unpredictable way and bringing unmatched dark and passionate vocals in more subtle and melodic ranges never before demonstrated on FRONT 242 discs.This is definitely an album that can only be appreciated fully after repeated listens. Simply lose yourself in the atmospheres and rhythms to really decipher and enjoy completely "Pulse" and its accompanying "Still & Raw" mini-Album. So listen carefully.

9 - FRONT 242 - NO COMMENT/POLITICS OF PRESSURE - (CD) 
ALFA MATRIX


"No Comment" and "Politics Of Pressure" were originally released in 1984 and 1985, at a moment when FRONT 242 reached its full force line-up made of Daniel B., Patrick Codenys, Jean-Luc De Meyer and Richard "23" Jonckheere; and really started attracting true cult-following. They had become the solid leaders of the newly born "electronic body music" movement in reference to their high-tech and hard edged electronic punk dance music. They were also shaping their today cult image as a high energetic powerful live-act dressed in military outfits ready to conquer the world and become one of the most popular underground bands for the many years to follow.Songs like the new hits "No Shuffle", "Commando Mix" or yet "Funkhadafi" definitely cemented their reputation as the leaders of cutting edge of the experimental industrial dance scene, combining political sound samples, heavy sequencing and aggressive electro beats. Just like their lead singer Jean-Luc De Meyer once explained it: "We don't want to say anything to the people. We just take samples from the world around us, the news, television, movies, the street...We act as a reflection of what's happening and what's interesting in the world.". FRONT 242s music was never created as a way to convey a message, but rather serve as an artistic observation of things around all of us!Since day one, FRONT 242 have always been employing the use of the most current technology available to keep their music fresh, groundbreaking and up to date, non-stop pushing their sound to its logical extreme. The unique cold and synthetic brand of electronic dance music displayed on "No Comment" and "Politics Of Pressure" instantly became the bands signature sound for the following decades. Its a true sensational pleasure for the ears rediscovering these great classic tunes in their fully remastered versions, reminding us how this second album firmly placed the group as a major driving force of electronic music for the many years to follow.
