a project by Dj Nox and Luca Anselmi (http://Electroworld.tk
*WHAT IS THE "ITALIAN BODY MUSIC" PROJECT?
The IBMProject is born from the common interest and dedication of
Alberto Brandi (Dj Nox, one of south Italy's prime-mover EBM/Industrial
DJs) and Luca Anselmi (founder and administrator of one of Italy's major
EBM-Industrial-Electro forum - webzine http://www.electroworld.tk
) for the
musical macrocosm related to the dark and alternative electronic music.
We both have always liked to relate to this scene we love in an active
way. Alberto as a Dj and event-organizer, Luca as restless manager of a
very alive forum. So, being conscious of how many valid bands exist in
Italy, we thought to actively promote these guys through a free compilation.
And here it is "Italian Body Music": the state of art of today's Italian
The "IBM" project wants especially to work as a way to actively promote
the Italian scene, very articulate and various in its manifestations,
ranging from 80's related synth-pop to the new ways of 2000 Electronic
Body Music, but also every kind of industrial and electronic
"Italian Body Music" can be interpreted as a manifesto of the
EBM-Electro-Industrial made in Italy, somehow a confutation of the
Italian xenophile complex, presenting some of the most promising and
interesting acts from our Peninsula.
This is not meant only for the hardcore-fans of the genre, but (mostly!)
to the newcomers, in Italy and abroad.
AND WHAT ABOUT IBM Vol.2 ?
IBM vol.2 represents a further step in the shaping of this promotional
project, helping to give form to the body-music related electronica of
this starting millennium. The echoes of contaminations with metal
characteristic of the first volume are now faded: in this edition there
is a strong ambient vibe, thanks to great acts as the master of
industrial Maurizio Bianchi, side by side with the pulse of the latest
and youngest dancefloor sensations of Italian dark, emotional and
powerful electro music.
The compilation presents tracks from already
internationally-accomplished bands and projects as the quoted Maurizio
Bianchi, Babylonia, Bad Sector, Wertham, ecc... as well as young and
promising acts that truly deserve to be listened, appreciated and
supported through purchasing their records, merchandising and making the
hell break loose at their concerts.
