Label: Planet Rouge Records Release Date: 26 June 2018
Oppression Ton Espoir Warm Leatherette The Weight Of the World
During the recent years, Terence Fixmer kept on being prolific by producing and releasing his music output on well esteemed quality labels such as Ostgut Ton, Novamute, Jealous God and recently on Aufnahme+Wiedergabe. Following a constant workflow, Fixmer decided it is now time to restart his label Planete Rouge which he launched back in 1998 already but has always been irregular in terms of releases. The label will relaunch after a 4-year hiatus with his new 12”.
Terence Fixmer’s ‘Oppression’ EP is a great resume of his unique sound design signature, delivering a collection of four energetic tracks that speaks to the soul.
On top of it, as an homage to one of his all time favourite tracks of ‘The Normal / Warm Leatherette’ from 1978, Fixmer decided to rewrite this 40 year old tune from Daniel Miller as a a personal pleasure and fun. By using as well the Mini Korg 700 S Terence Fixmer recreated nearly the original sound, keeping a track that is loyal to his own sound as well as its original spirit.
