Hell-o all and i hope you had a great weekend! As we have already announced a while ago and therefore expected, we have some news for you as we have finally decided and picked our final winners whose tracks will be featured on the Metalectro Vol.03 “Hellbound” Compilation, out soon on Jet Set Trash! Before we proceed to announcing the winners though, we have some extra good news for you, since we have also decided that the final winners and tracks will be 13 and not 10, like we had initially announced. It was impossible to pick just 10 tracks as there were way too many good entries and so we thought we would add 3 more tracks on the release! So, without any further delay, here are the 13 winners of the Metalecrto Vol.03 “Original Track Contest” and they are…
Doomsday is upon us only in a few hours and in case you’re wondering if you’re ending up in heaven or hell, let me tell you we’re all “Hellbound”! That’s how we like it and it fits our style and sound! Also, “Hellbound” is the title of the Metalectro Vol.03 forthcoming Compilation on Jet Set Trash, for which we have some results to announce! 23 tracks have made it through the 1st selection round and for those of you who have been anxious to find out which entries advance to the 2nd and final round, the wait is over! Here are the 23 picks (in no particular order)!!!
***In addition, we have decided to give to all of you who made it through to the 2nd round a chance to improve and make any minor adjustments to your tracks and final mix/masters! Please make sure you have finished with any adjustements and have emailed the new tracks in WAV [16bit, 44100KHz] (if you decide to make any changes) in the email address given in the Contest Rules BEFORE the 26th of December (Wednesday)!!!***
So, that’s all for now from us, in case you haven’t yet done so, check the entries below, spread the news and stay tuned for the final results which should be announced on Sunday the 30th of December!!!
As promised, here we come with some big birthday news and well, the launch of the “Metalectro Vol.03 Original Track Contest”!!! The time has come once again for Metalectro to raise hell, as the final 10 winning tracks of the contest will be featured on the Metalectro Vol.03 Compilation, to be released on Jet Set Trash! This time we teamed up with 6 artists who provided us with some killer “sample packs”, out of which you will be asked to produce an original track. The final track will be released as collaboration between you and the artist(s) whose sounds you have used. In case you are wondering who are the artists we teamed up with, have a read below:
Besides providing their “sample packs”, the above artists will also be part of the judging panel as “special guest judges”. As for the rest of the judging panel, your usual suspects will be filling the gaps with Metalectro’s most destructive blogging duo Zak Electrohead Kilmister and Hannakiri Hellectro, as well as Jet Set Trash of course, who will be responsible for the release of the Metalectro Vol.03 Compilation. So, before you grab those “sample packs” and get started, check out the Contest Soundcloud Group (where you can also find the link to download the “sample packs” provided) and make sure you read the Contest Rules and Terms & Conditions and follow them!!!

As i´ve been to Who´s BADD? last week in Strasbourg i´ll now come up with a little review for you. First to mention is that it has probably been one of the coldest evening/nights i´ve experienced during the whole damn winter, but i think i took the best decision then in proceeding toward the place where digital hell was suposed to take place this night!
Therefore i traveled to Strasbourg to hear and experience an infernal night of hard, destructive electro. The venue where everything happened was actually more a small club/bar called L´Entrepôt. A pretty comfortable place with a nice interior and especially cool and kind staff and owner. Supported by Cover Your Face Crew the party started at around 10pm . First the music was a little bit too clubby or big beat related for my taste, but luckily Cover Your Face Crew soon started to advance and to drop the harder stuff as well! That’s when finally, and i must confess due to significantly large amounts alcohol consumption i had kind of lost track of the time, Hantise started to perform. The hometown boys from Strasbourg captivated the crowd at once playing nasty and trashy electro. From their remix of Anthony F´s “D.I.E.”, across The Bloody Beetroots, Fukkk Offf, Roevy, Q.G. , ValyMo, to their own track “Despotic Freak Show” – they covered really almost everything a hard electro lover could expect! I think they performed at least 1,5 hours, maybe longer, having a look at the time was unimportant anyway.
Directly after Hantise´s set the Killer King himself, WASA3I started to play his infernal set. As being an eyecatcher and equipped with his new mask, he nailed down everybody´s attention anyway but most impressive was the way he enforced his evil musical spell upon the crowd. Definitely a great performer and a dj who’s suprisingly eclectic!
The tracks he chose covered a wide range from his own releases like “Killer King” ,which was of course the opening track, to Audiomachine (Access Denied Remix), Wolfgang Gartner, Knife Party, Redial and to Metallica´s “And Justice For All”, the last track of his set. The transitions from track to track speak volumes for his skills, i remember, or better said i luckily wrote it down, he dropped Haezer´s “Joey Bloom” directly after the remix of Dead Cat Bounce´s & You Killing Me´s “Justice” by A.G. Trio. Two of my favourites, but also quite different tracks, and i suppose not easy to mix, therefore big ups!
Overall a perfect evening for me in a every respect, both Hantise and WASA3I satisfied all my expectations and i highly recommend each of them performing live! Even better of course seeing them both in one evening! Again a huge thanks to everybody who was involved in this apocalyptic-awesome evening, it was a fucking blast!!!
