EBM legend Terence Fixmer continues to bring the heat, adding to a catalog that spans two decades. Last year saw an impactful album on Ostgut packed with timeless sounds for the late night dance floor. His 2019 release campaign kicks off on Mute sublabel NovaMute with four-track 12″ titled ‘The Swarm’.
Appearing in various alias, groups, and labels, Fixmer’s records all embody a common theme of powerful club-ready tones. A driving force behind the EBM revival of the late 90s, his consistency is unmatched. Continued hommage to origins of the genre is woven with innovative soundscapes that are often described a ruthless in the best way.
The abrasive bassline of “The Swarm” opens the EP and continues on to “FRF2” with an acidic and psychedelic march. On the flipside, “No Dreams” combines a big room vibe with a mystique that travels directly towards “The Dawn,” as adventurous as it is rarefied.
