DE FABRIEK - REMIXES VOL. 1 (CD by De Fabriek)

There is nothing much logical about the work of Dutch legends De Fabriek. But then, you don't
become a legend by doing ordinary things. There is much mystery about De Fabriek, even when
in the last two years there is a Bandcamp page and you can reach (some) members via e-mail.
Their last double CD was a real CD, and so is Remixes Vol. 1. Now, before you wonder if 'Remixes
1' is the beginning of a new thing; it is perhaps the end of something? In Vital Weekly 1035 we
discussed 'Remixes Vol. 5' and after that other volumes not in any chronological order when they
were released on CDR and this being De Fabriek, it is always confusing. Who remixes who or
what? In this case, one P. Ehrmann, also known as Peter PET takes on a look at material submitted
by K. Mons, A. Eker, P. van Vliet, F. de Waard, R. van Dellen, R. Hemmes and M. Hohmann,
besides Ehrman. Some of these names you may have found on the earliest De Fabriek releases
back in the late '70s. Throughout the many years, this 'group' (collective might be a better word) is
active, they have shifted through numerous musical genres; from experimental to ambient to
industrial; even pushing the boundaries of techno music. These days De Fabriek are perhaps at
their most eclectic and it shows on a release like 'Remixes Vol. 1'. Here spacious electronic parts,
ambient music if you will, sit next to more beat-driven music, if one doesn't want to use word
techno, but there are surely some strong beats on this release. Voices are picked up from the
ether and mixed at will; that, perhaps, adds to the notion of the krautrock roots of De Fabriek,
which they also have. As such the music bounces freely all over the place and it should be no
surprise that there is also room for an updated version of 'Kein Spass In Zwolle', their electro-
punk anthem of bored youth from 1977, but now in a robot voiced version. As before De Fabriek
takes the listener on a journey, from the cosmos to the dance floor, occasionally visiting a chill-
out in space again and landing with a 4/4 rhythm in 'Gedane Zaken'. Excellent, as usual. (FdW)
