DTX04LP : Normalised - The Detonic Collection 12"/CD





Earlier in the year Detonic Recordings invited some of their favourite acts to contribute a track to a " Transglobal Synth-Punk Compilation". 
Songs slowly arrived from all around the world  - 12 tracks recorded especially for the LP and/or unreleased previously, these are not just remixes or demo out-takes - the record plays like a set of hit singles. Like a great Compilation should.  

The final set includes Parisian noise-pop, Epic Coldwave from California and Bordeaux, Post-Chiptune Chaos from Tokyo, Riot Grrl No-Wave from Brighton, Kraut, Goth, EBM and Uber-Concrete Noise from Melbourne , a dozen disparate sounds and styles all united by a common disdain for the Guitar.

Heres the first reaction from Detonics' Vice President for Marketing (European Region) :
"As a compilation, this release is A-OK.Give it to any DJ in Le Klub or Bonnie and Clyde on Saturdays and the whole of the tracks would live through it - no worries. There is an interest in Paris now for cheap synth punk with a dark and twisted soul to it... we are starting to get tired with the wannabe classy new wave stuff so... the shit here is refreshing ... i like the EBM touch also, cheap EBM that is... you can dance to it AND feel dirty.... i dig that.
Now some guys in here i just couldn't get listen to and keep serious. You don't speak french do you ? Cuz nobody who can speak French could listen to Infecticide and keep serious. i laughed my ass so ferocious in the subway that i had to get out of the tube, people were staring at me and it was embarrassing... But there is no big deal. i am not sure those bastards want to be taken seriously anyway.
Some i like but i don't know why - it's crappy but it's cool and i love the fragility of it - Men oh Pause is like that, so is Jonny Telafone. Now some tracks have a potential for being MORE than just canon-fodder for DJs. VvvV is really catchy (that would-be-Marc-Almond-voice-mmmmmmh!), Sashcloth and AXes scared the shit out of me... and as for Wolf Shield, i would do him in a heartbeat !"
