BN9Drone

    BN9Drone delves deeper into Cabaret Voltaire’s arsenal of “harsh rhythms and threatening detonations” (Classic Pop). A brand new drone album on limited edition double white vinyl, available with high definition audio download.


    STAFF COMMENTS

    Barry says: There are few forces in the synth scene more influential than Cabaret Voltaire, and this outing sees Kirk delving into prime drone territory. We get slowly morphing waves of electronic scree, churning sub-bass and shadowy oscillations aplenty. A monolithic triumph from one of the greatest in the 'biz.

      Shadow Of Fear

        Shadow of Fear is Cabaret Voltaire’s first studio album in 26 years. Richard H. Kirk is the sole remaining member; he’s released many acclaimed solo albums, having invented bleep techno via his groundbreaking work in Sweet Exorcist. Kirk has formed this new album from a series of pulverising live shows. The tone and personality of CV is ingrained in its core as it dances across techno, dub, house, 1970s Germany and general esoteric explorations coupled with mangled vocal samples.

        STAFF COMMENTS

        Barry says: As important a document as anything they've done, 'Shadow Of Fear' is a swimming electronic odyssey, split between hypnotic industrial percussion and slowly evolving synth arps, bringing the churning driven thump we know so well, as well as a more playful, danceable backbone. Superb.

          ‘#7885 (Electropunk To Technopop) features classic tracks such as ‘Nag Nag Nag’, ‘Do The Mussolini (Headkick)’, ‘Sensoria’, ‘Landslide’, ‘I Want You’ and ‘Just Fascination’.

          Curated by Richard H Kirk, who explains, “I decided to gather the more concise elements of the work… Hence the choice of 7” singles, edits and shorter album tracks, a kind of soundbite take on CV.”

          ‘#7885 (Electropunk To Technopop)’ compiles two distinct periods of Cabaret Voltaire - 1978-81 and 1983-85 - for the first time together on one release and follows the remastered vinyl release of ‘Red Mecca’ and already legendary sold out box set ‘#8385 (Collected Works 1983-1985)’.

          The compilation travels from 1978-81 with a line up of Richard H Kirk, Stephen Mallinder and Chris Watson, when Cabaret Voltaire were (mostly) recording at the Western Works Studios in Sheffield and releasing records on Rough Trade and from 1983-85 after Watson’s departure when Kirk and Mallinder released via the Some Bizzare label on Virgin Records. Kirk points out that this “was a time where we got to do what we do, but in different areas, we wanted to push the boundaries of electronic music, we wanted to place what we were doing into places where it really shouldn't be. We certainly didn't want to carry on repeating what we'd done for the ten years previous.”

          Cabaret Voltaire formed in 1973 and, alongside Human League, Throbbing Gristle, Fad Gadget and The Normal, were at the forefront of the UK electronic movement of the late 70s. Way ahead of their time, Cabaret Voltaire’s blend of dance music, techno, dub, house and experimental made them, without a doubt, one of the most influential acts of the last 40 years.
