FORMS OF HANDS 20 – a proud 20th festival anniversary, a sad reality, as theoriginal event has been taken down by the global Covid-19 pandemic.
But: The oldest ongoing annual industrial compilation series continues and is unstoppable - especially not in 2020, which is the HANDS no-less-than-30 years anniversary!
And: The festival and party itself is only postponed to April 2021, not cancelled, life will go on, and you have this CD as a testament of creativity and friendship – in line with the zeitgeist we stay apart to stand together. Press play and get ready for some horizontal festival dancing in isolation.
Number 20 in the encyclopedia of all things HANDS is very obviously a recollection of our core skill – presenting tracks from rhythm’n’noise to industrial techno in all its artistic forms. Analogue and old school flavor is spread by MS GENTUR and <1979>, upfront noise comes from LAST DAYS OF S.E.X. and STROBO.LOLITA, and surely there are ruthlessly assaulting club tracks by MASCHINENKRIEGER KR52, MONO NO AWARE and GREYHOUND. Of course there’s distraction right and left: Gritty, complex dance floor tracks by ORPHX and MDD, industrial techno stompers by WINTERKÄLTE and MONOLITH, PROYECTO MIRAGE with a vocal driven futuristic retro techno clash track, AH CAMA-SOTZ doing his tribal techno wizardry and NULLVEKTOR pushing the genre-bending game. As always, all tracks are exclusive to this release, a fine means to celebrate the 30th anniversary of HANDS.
