The Klinik releases complete 8CD back catalogue box on Out Of Line
This The Klinik box set is not only the most comprehensive anthology of the band's music ever released, it is also an important documentation of a vital piece of history of electronic music. On 8 CDs, it not only contains all album releases of yore (with the exception of the comeback release from 2013), but also all rare and out-of-print tracks, plus a plethora of unreleased studio and live recordings.
Belgian band The Klinik is one of the few artists that have managed to leave a lasting imprint on an entire scene. Many of today's protagonists would simply not exist in their current form had it not been for the influence of this seminal group. More than three decades ago, Marc Verhaeghen and Dirk Ivens created a completely new sub-genre in electronic music, by consequently combining minimal, cold, dark and raw Industrial-elements to create a sound that was completely unique and had never been achieved in this form before. Tracks like “Memories”, “Moving Hands” or “Black Leather” are still mandatory spins at Dark-Electro-clubs around the globe and will instantaneously fill any dance floor. With their fresh and new style of music and their enigmatic live shows that see the band members dressed in long black leather coats and wrapped in medical bandages, The Klinik quickly became a cult act in a steadily growing scene. Hissing vocals and minimalist lyrics were accompanied by strange and creative synthesizer sounds, noises, bare bones beats and distorted trumpet which altogether gave the music a fever-dream-like quality. The Klinik were not only mere electronic music, they were a unique experience and a way of life. It is hardly any wonder that many of today's popular acts still quote the group as one of their main influences. The song “Out Of Line” from the album classic “Face To Face” was also inspiration for the name and the creation of the label that is now releasing this very box set. “The Klinik-Box” contains 8 jam-packed CDs which include all the studio albums the band has released, all EPs and all other rare and out-of-print-material. On top of that, The Klinik have unearthed a myriad of previously unreleased studio and live recordings which have also been included. All recordings have been remastered with a lot of loving care by Eric van Wonterghem (Dirk's colleague in Absolute Body Control) under supervision from the band, to let them shine in a previously unheard sound quality. The set is limited to 1000 hand-numbered copies in a lavish book box. This box set is not only a dream come true but also a true affair of the heart for all that were involved in creating it… and an absolute must-own for fans. This Holy Grail of the Electro-Industrial-scene should be in every decent collection of alternative electronic music!

We have a newborn! Black Easter Festival!
You know we at BodyBeats productions like to paint it all black! We have already a celebrate a darker X-mass since 13 years now, with our BIMFEST (December 19th&20th), and will continue to do so ... But as from 2015, also Easter will be never the same and more gloomy like ever before!
Black Easter Festival, on April 4th & 5th 2015, is a new BodyBeats Productions Festival that could only be realized with the help and support of some generous partners.
Since decades now, we have been concentrating more towards the darker side of mainly Electronic Alternative music and now, after the disappearing of several other organization and festivals within our scene, we thought now the time is ripe to launch a new festival concept.
On Black Easter we would like to put our spotlight on the more Goth/Rock & Performance orientated segment of our beloved scene. So don't be surprised!
Meanwhile the first acts are announced!
GOETHES ERBEN (Belgian exclusive 2015), ATARAXIA, SIEBEN & HATCHLING
Tickets sale has begun already ! ONLY 100 EARLY BIRD combi-tickets will be available!
Attention all bands & bookers: Our 2015 line-up is already complete! So... Don't call us! We call you!:-)
