2019, the year FORMS OF HANDS stands out an even more unique event than before, and its perseverance more important than ever. Unswervingly, let’s keep up, and do the 19th annual drill: For those in attention, and the unlucky ones who can’t make it, HANDS provides the festival CD with all 14 stage acts in chronological order, presenting exclusive tracks only. A top-notch addition to this compilation series of encyclopaedic quality and proportions!

The manifold that is the HANDS label roster surely appreciates the opportunity to contribute and prove in best shape: Those who simultaneously release an album (or a 12”) have supplied an extra serving of their individual sound - ICD-10, SUPERSIMMETRIA, GEISTFORM, festival and label newcomer SANS-FIN, TALVEKOIDIK and TOMOHIKO SAGAE provide their respective brand of rhythmic electronica, from harsh to gentle, from raw to immaculate.
GATTO NERO goes techno all the way (with a cheeky tribal house flavour even), S.K.E.T. surprise with an experimental soundscape, a sonic report of human cruelty, and ONTAL side-project KATRAN debuts with a slow and doomed track. Due diversion is provided by 16PAD NOISE TERRORIST, with a darkstep banger, and HEIMSTATT YIPOTASH with a canny homage to the spirit of early EBM. And lest we forget, the rhythm’n’noise tradition is preserved by MONO NO AWARE (eardrum assault!), YURA YURA (hit alert!) and WINTERKÄLTE, who have an all new tune up their sleeve, which starts in a kind of turmoil, before all elements fall into an energetic terminus. Allegorical one may say, or simply the end of another essential FORMS OF HANDS compilation.
