Just ten month after the release of their (immediately sold out) "Musik ist Krieg" - EP, Funker Vogt present their all new EP, serving as first taster for the new album! But beware: The harbinger "Feel the Pain" is again a STRICTLY LIMITED CD in a Digifile and will be sold out within a few weeks. You have been warned! "Feel the Pain" indicates very offensively the direction of the new album "Wastelands". With an extremely high sing-along factor, Funker Vogt once again deliver a catchy tune for the dance floor, which should not be missed by any electro-fan. Hard shouts in the verses round up the song to the perfect club anthem. The video edit and the extended version of "Feel the Pain" on the EP are accompanied by the bonus track "Der letzte Kampf" and the two Funker Vogt classic hits from the past, "Funker Vogt 2nd Unit" and "Gunman", in newly arranged and new sung versions.
Under the alias of ' C-Lekktor ', Marco makes his first appearances in quality of disc jockey in events that gather to the pioneer bands of the electro scene in Mexico, 'Oxido Conkreto', 'Hocico', 'Portent', 'Ogo', 'Cenobita', 'Deus ex Machina'. That was the golden era of the electro (1990-1997). Besides his appearances like DJ, Marco was also involved in other projects, like the radiophonic ones in the show 'Oído Electrónico'
 After the step of the years, maturity by means, and the contacts that left acquiring, the musical restlessness showed in a more creative and more personal project. C-Lekktor settles down formally as band with Rene Martínez's (Libre Experimento) integration initially as vocalist although finally he decides to participate only in the musical creation, leaving this way Marco in the vowels.
 C-Lekktor makes its live official presentation on September 27 of 2003, at the 'Delirium Club' inside the First Collective Sampler 'Electro for the Masses' alternating with the projects 'Goliat' and 'Neuromantik'. This same year 'J. Förtran' is integrated to the live alignment of C-Lekktor participating in the electronic percussion and later developing the visual work for the band.
Formed in 2004, FGFC820 is the harsh EBM project from well-known and respected New York City DJs, Rexx Arkana and Dräcos. Drawing on joint and separate influences ranging from old school industrial to modern gabber, Arkana and Dräcos combine to create a sound that is at once melodic and relentlessly rhythmic, "bringing the 'thump' back to EBM", as one reviewer recently put it.
As an artist in his own right, Arkana has also written lyrics and/or recorded vocals for such prominent underground acts as The Retrosic (New World Order), Neikka RPM (Storm of Hell), and davaNtage side project, Supreme Court (Mass Media Murder).
Dräcos spent the last half of the 90s in Boston where he graduated from Berklee College of Music. While in Boston, Dräcos also recorded and performed live with the industrial group, Disciples of Astaroth. In 1999, Dräcos relocated to NYC where he began building a bigger name for himself as a DJ for the some of the scenes' most notorious parties which later led to international gigs such as Mexico City and Leipzig, Germany. Dräcos also started Subsurface Productions to encompass all of his various projects, since he had begun DJing and releasing original tracks/remixes under his various aliases... such as his track "Sacrilege" which was recorded under his 'Von Strecker' alias and chosen to represent the gabba genre on the "Definitive - Elevated" album from England's 42Records.
Worms of the Earth is the esoteric solo project of Dan Barrett, specializing in darkly atmospheric Ethno Industrial soundscapes. Steeped in potent spiritual energy, the music coalesces the best elements of rhythmic noise, tribal industrial, dark ambient, and idm. Since 2007 it has released albums on various labels including Tympanik Audio, Industry8, and Bugs Crawling Out Of People. Over the years the project has performed dozens of shows throughout the US and Canada and has over 60 compilation, remix, and collab appearances which have been featured on labels such as Projekt, Hands, Alfa Matrix, Tympanik, Metropolis, Annihilvs, etc.
This is a "mystery band". One that we are super excited for but will not announce until the moment they go up on stage at the festival. No one outside of the Mechanismus crew knows their identity but trust us...you have heard of them. They will be in the crowd during the festival too if you can find them...
Kounter Mezhure started in 2016 as a side project of Los Vincent from the repository of tracks that didn't fit into the Torque Order catalog. After the dissolution of Torque Order, it became the primary focus of Los. Where Torque Order strove to be music for all the people, regardless of partisanship, Kounter Mezhure allowed Los to express his own political and philosophical views. Reverting back to his electronic music roots, Kounter Mezhure delivers haunting melodies with a dark/aggressive vocal style, interwoven with harsh beats and heavy bass lines. The early lyrical goal was to incite the ire and legal action of President Donald J. Trump. However, over time, the lyrics evolved to encompass a broader range of social justice and environmental issues. In 2017, MMXVII was released digitally on Bandcamp and as a limited edition CD. Los spent 2017 working on material and touring, and Kounter Mezhure’s self titled full album is set to be released in 2019.
