"Featuring classic 'EBM' (electronic body music) and Nu-Beat tracks from Nitzer Ebb, The Normal, Fad Gadget, Front 242, Crash Course In Science, Skinny Puppy, DAF, Liaisons Dangereuses and a new exclusive track from compiler (and Gigolo) Terence Fixmer, Aktion Mekanik brings together long lost/forgotten classics from the 80's Belgian Nu-Beat scene, whilst highlighting their influence on modern electronic composition. With tracks such as The Normal's 'Warm Leatherette' being covered by Chicks On Speed or bootlegged by Richard X and DJ Hell covering No More's 'Suicide Commando' and making the second half of his recent 'Electronicbody-housemusic' mix CD a homage to old and new versions of 'EBM', 'Aktion Mekanik' is a timely reminder of how we used to play. One such current producer who certainly used to play is Planete Rouge man, Terence Fixmer who has been fusing EBM with modern techno ever since 'Electrostatic' launched his life as a Gigolo in the late 90s. Born in Lille, on the Northern borders of Belgium it was at the tender age of 15 that Fixmer fell headfirst into the burgeoning EBM scene just across the border, where himself and fellow friends at Ghent's Music Man label fanatically followed bands such as Front 242, Klinik, DAF and Nitzer Ebb and frequented Belgian clubs such as Boccaccio and Skyline. 'I made this compilation as a personal journey and to remember the well respected electronic artists which are in someway our modern techno forefathers,' states Fixmer. 'I made it just because this is the music of my heart and nothing to do with any 80s trend.'"
