NITZER EBB - BODY REWORK - REMIXES appears on July 24th, 2006

NITZER EBB are back with a Best Of compilation Body of Work 1984-1997 on Mute (out on 5th June) and Body Rework: Remixes, the accompanying collection of remixes from contemporary artists and DJs inspired by the band's proto-techno industrial legacy on novamute on 24th July 2006. Body Rework sees such Ebb classics as Control (I'm Here), Join In The Chant, Murderous and Let Your Body Learn remixed by the likes of Black Strobe, Xpress 2, Derrick May, The Hacker, Phil Kieran, Thomas Heckmann, Robag Wruhme, Terence Fixmer and Motor into updated electronic versions of their industrial blueprint.

On Body Rework Deep Dish's Ali Shirazinia (aka Dubfire) gets to grips with Control (I'm Here) turning it into a deep and tripped out house version whilst France's Black Strobe flex their EBM muscles on Getting Closer and Xpress 2 drag Join In The Chant through their housed-up echo chamber. Lightning Man sees novamute's Motor duo pulverise the original into the darkest recesses of hypnotic techno whilst Derrick May's interpretation of Shame sees the legendary Detroit pioneer turn the funk up to maximum. Michel Amato, aka The Hacker beefs up the bass on Control (I'm Here) whilst Robag Wruhme takes I Thought on a minimal journey and Phil Kieran turns Murderous into a peak time techno monster with all the trimmings. Of course it wouldn't be a complete remix project without EBM fanatic and one half of Fixmer & McCarthy, Terence Fixmer adding his titanium toughened beats to Let Your Body Learn and finally Thomas P. Heckmann cranks up the robo-techno pressure on Join In The Chant for an end of night stormer.

NITZER EBB RELEASE A NEW ALBUM 'BODY OF WORK 1984-1997'

Nitzer Ebb Live in 2006 is a one off specialtour. It will be very limited - miss this chance to see Nitzer Ebb and you will miss out forever!
- Douglas McCarthy

Nitzer Ebb announce details of a new compilation album and have reformed for some very rare live dates, their first since 1995. These dates include a show at London's Islington Carling Academy on 9th July 2006 with more to be announced.

Nitzer Ebb started life when two sixteen year olds from Chelmsford, Bon Harris and Douglas McCarthy, caught the ear of PWL producer Phil Harding and recorded two killer tracks: 'Let Your Body learn' and 'Warsaw Ghetto' back in 1985. They came to the attention of Mute boss Daniel Miller and recorded the classic proto-balearic-techno album 'That Total Age'. Released on Mute in the same year, it featured such classics as 'Murderous',
'Join In the Chant' and 'Let Your Body Learn'.

Nitzer Ebb went on to sell over 100,000 records in the States alone, tour with Depeche Mode and have influenced pioneering DJs and producers such as Richie Hawtin, Darren Emerson, Sven Vaeth, DJ Hell, Tom Stephan, Danny Tenaglia as well as rock-gods Smashing Pumpkins and Nine Inch Nails. They split in 1995 but will reform for a very special one off tour in the summer of 2006.
