2021 sees the celebration of the proud 20th edition of FORMS OF HANDS, the annual HANDS label festival since 2000. The oldest running annual industrial compilation series continues again with the impressive catalogue number HANDS D300, which stands for the 300th CD on HANDS.

Two decades are certainly a milestone for every festival, especially as due to the pandemic the 20th edition of FORMS OF HANDS was the most difficult to carry out. But let’s just be happy for this year’s event to bring back together people at the shaft tower, and re-unite these 14 artists for another outstanding edition of this unique compilation series – long live FORMS OF HANDS!
The FORMS OF HANDS festival edition compilation for 2021 comprises 14 all-exclusive tracks by the performing artists – nine of which could be re-booked from the cancelled last year’s festival edition, with five alternatives stepping in for this year.

The main themes are rhythm’n’noise in various configurations by WINTERKÄLTE, MONO NO AWARE, GREYHOUND, MASCHINENKRIEGER KR52, HYSTERESIS, <1979> and STROBO.LOLITA and industrial techno tunes by MONOLITH, NULLVEKTOR, CERVELLO ELETTRONICO and ICD-10. Diversity is guaranteed through a quirky remix by HEIMSTATT YIPOTASH, a glorious noise anthem by MS GENTUR and a total disregard for genres by 16PAD NOISE TERRORIST.

This album is valid proof that creativity is alive and blooming, and beyond the uncertainty and gloom of the pandemic life will continue and labels and festivals are able to survive with the support of their fans. Let's celebrate together, let’s cherish the 20th edition of FORMS OF HANDS, cheers!
