Sonic Groove Records further ignites 2017 with the label’s second release of the year by Terence Fixmer and Douglas J. Mccarthy titled ” Chemicals” set for release 15th March
The legendary Douglas J. McCarthy, founder and frontman of the seminal and pioneering EBM project Nitzer Ebb, continues his alliance with Contemporary Techno producer Terence Fixmer together lending to the electronic music landscape with their combined artistic initiative.
The vinyl EP is the first official new release from the duo since the 2016 EP “So Many Lies” and the 2008 album “Into the Night”. The A side of this 3-track EP presents the title track “Chemicals” in two forms; the original version and an instrumental version. Side B continues with the track “Wrong Planet”.
With the original version of “Chemicals ” Fixmer completely demonstrates his expertise while McCarthy’s inspired voice of fueled and cryptic conviction carries forth, a combination of perfect elements that give birth to an anthem for the rooms that deserve and can appreciate this. For DJ’s of this legion, it’s the perfect tool for peak time injection of auditory dissonance and streamlined cadence.
The Instrumental version stands extremely strong on it’s own and is, for all intents and purposes, a defining example of EBM proto Techno of the futuristic kind. Side B continues this transmission with another gem titled ” Wrong Planet ” that has been polished to near perfection in every way imaginable.
This is a unique and advanced release for Sonic Groove and in current dystopian and bleak times it is comforting to know that there are still possibilities such as this to deliver us from it all.
