    Back in 1941, the Focke-Wulf 190 was a German single seated, single engined fighter aircraft designed by Kurt Tank in the late 1930’s, was used widely during World War II, and was the backbone of the Luftwaffe’s fighter force.

    Flash forward, and Fockewulf 190 is an electronic band who manage to soar as well, and who claim to be redefining historical electronic atmospheres for the contemporary pulsing life in the digital age, claiming that music is never really dead, that there is always a space for it to be redefined, develop, and to carry on with a sense of metamorphosis. The Fockewulf 190 protect was created as a shape equal to a substance, an experimental analogy of electronic music connected to the theatrical, and designed to mimic the power of rock with the romantic and esthetic forces of the electronic dance sounds laid down in the 1980’s. The band translated those expressive channels with the force and background of a psychedelic mind, folding their sound into a magical and evocative world, a world that allows the listener to reach into themselves, where the mind and music play out together to enable the listener to be enveloped within their own space.

    Many think of electronic music as merely riding on some hypnotic current, though with the concept of revitalized sounds and attitudes from the past, and you will certainly here elements of David Bowie here, Fockewulf offer up a diversity that sounds fresh and enticing, yet in the same breath, deeply routed in all that was laid down in the early 1970’s. With that in mind, the band claim that they are not so much presenting a musical experience, as much as they are creating a visual experience that exists within the confines and construct of the subconscious, one where the listener is part of the process, part of the creative experience, encouraged to draw in the music on a conscious level, and see where it takes them.

    To be specific, this outing was a special collection of material, and is comprised of the most mysterious and atmospherically dark years for the band, where like some sort of cosmic radio antenna, they’ve managed to channel this music from the great beyond, giving it a physical manifestation for things that for the most part can only be dreamed of.

    On a specific physical level, seeing the band live will hint at visions from the glam rock and post punk movements, where the musical currents here shift easily from the 1980’s into today’s textures flawlessly, meaning that what you discover here, sounds as effortlessly fresh as it did when it was original committed to vinyl.

    this record is the maximum celebration of the creative genius of the band. a must have for all fans of electro music, from cosmic and ambient to italo disco.

    in particular, "Effect moon" is one of the electronic masterpieces of the last century, it's a journey into space, it's Wagner abducted by aliens and digitally reprogrammed through a supercomputer.
    "Vespayar", another amazing track, it's the sound of a dark empire slowly falling on itself... decadence that becomes bliss.

    Simply the best Fockewulf 190 record ever!
