In 2008, the Belgian label ALFA MATRIX will celebrate its 7th anniversary. For the occasion, a special deluxe carton box double-CD + DVD (!!) label compilation, "alfa matrix - re:connected [3.0]" will be released featuring exclusive and previously unreleased material from ALL artists in the matrix. And as a special feature to make this 34-track audio release even more valuable to collector's, an extended 19-track video clip DVD collection is included to visually enhance the experience! Since its creation, Alfa Matrix has established itself as one of the few unavoidable label references for quality electronic / EBM / industrial music. Refusing to be typecast into a fixed format, Alfa Matrix quickly built a varied international roster accentuated by influential artists including pioneers such as FRONT 242, LEAETHER STRIP, TRISOMIE 21, MENTALLO & THE FIXER, MONOLITH, PLASTIC NOISE EXPERIENCE, etc. along side a stable of outstanding and fast ascending younger acts and promising newcomers. For this birthday occasion, many of the Alfa Matrix bands did not hesitate to reveal brand new songs: UNTER NULL, AIBOFORCEN, 32CRASH, DUNKELWERK, STRAY, KLUTAE, TAMTRUM, REGENERATOR, SEIZE, DIFFUZION, IMPLANT, NEIKKA RPM, MONOLITH, MENTALLO & THE FIXER, MIND:STATE, etc. Other noticeable contributions are from BRUDERSCHAFT revealing a new song with Tom Shear (Assemblage 23) on vocals, TRISOMIE 21 announcing with "Hear Me Now" another beautiful album for 2009 or yet the unique collaboration between PNE and LEAETHER STRIP on a matchless duet remake of the timeless hit "Smalltown Boy" - all offer guaranteed highlights on this compilation. We also enjoy rare or new exclusive mixes of recent club hits from bands like LEAETHER STRIP, AYRIA, DISKONNEKTED, ESSENCE OF MIND, NEBULA-H, STAR INDUSTRY, TECHNOIR, AGONISED BY LOVE, HELALYN FLOWERS, ZOMBIE GIRL, I:SCINTILLA And last but not least, the uplifting appearance of the label's recent signings KOMOR KOMMANDO (Sebastian Komor's next big power club hit solo-machine), SHAUN F (new killer solo-project of GLIS' frontman), Paris-based KRYSTAL SYSTEM, Belgium's latest highlight PSY'AVIAH and the next dark elektro revelation on Alfa Matrix with the addition of Germany's ACYLUM for his next album. "re:connected [3.0]" holds over 2 hours of eclectic electronic music, an ultimate sonic birthday card presenting the impressive Alfa Matrix constellation of artists and what they have to offer you musically and emotionally, plus some 19 video clips for your visual pleasure! From electronica to power EBM, through harsh elektro, techno pop, industrial'n beat, darkwave and goth industrial the matrix holds no limits. released on Alfa Matrix and available November 7th, 2008.
