Up on the
dancefloor and raise your fists, Funker Vogt is back with some new material
again! Their last album "Maschine Zeit" was released in May, but we
are always hungry for new floorkiller hits and Funker Vogt will surely not
let us down, their harsh but yet catchy and dance friendly music just can't
be anything but excellent. Kai Schmidt speaks...
currently happening in the Funker Vogt camp?
new CD will inlcude four sections and this will be also reflected in the
artwork, we have one maincover and 4 single covers for every single part of
our whole concept. The box will be called "t". That is quite simple
but this should reflect the continous process we are working at and also the
whole concept of the CD. "t" is the physical symbol for time and as
our last release was called "Maschine Zeit" which means machine
time, this should symbol the close relation to our last CD. 3 parts of our
upcoming double cd box will contain remixes from "Maschine Zeit"
and 1 part will contain 4 completely new tracks. The four parts will be
called "NeuZeit" (the 4 new songs), "MaschinenZeit"
(pretty harsh stuff for the dancefloor), "TraumZeit" (soft versions
of our songs, dreamy and spherical) and the last part is "EndZeit"
(remixes done by other artists: Das Ich, Noisex, Beborn Beton, And One, Lame
Yes this is right, we will take "Subspace", most likely the first song on CD one of our box. "Subspace" is the name of the video game, for which we produced this song. The game is an online game, a deathmatch, where everybody is playing against each other. Actually we planned to put a playable demo of the game on our MCD, but this will not work as it is a multi user game, so we decided to put a video-track for "Subspace" on the CD containing scenes of the game. I am really curious how this will look like.
Which label is these CD's going to be released through?
and Metropolis. We stick to our past.
say about twenty, but cannot come up with the actual number.
It is the possibility to put your own mark on a song from a different band, and it is also the challenge to give this song a new perspective, to do a new interpretation, I wouldnt say to make it better as this is subjective, but to turn in in something new almost as good as the original.
When you remix other band's songs, is it the bands
themelves that approach you or is done by your own initiative?
Funker Vogt has undoubtedly a very extreme sound. Never been interested in doing something a bit more easy listened and overly catchy, just to see how it would be?
Wait for our new release and you might be surprised!
But actually this is
kind of a trademark for a Funker Vogt song, and we really don't wanna change
this too much in the future. If we wanna do something more easy listened and
overly catchy we will do it with our other projects.
