BACK IN PRINT!!! ZWISCHENFALL formed in Belgium in 1982 with MICHAEL SASS (synths), MARTIN URBAN (bass/vocals) and STEPHAN KRAEMER (guitar/drums). They were united by their interest in combining electronic and traditional instruments, which developed the basis for 1982 demo recordings. By chance PATRICK CODENYS of the Belgian electro pioneers FRONT 242, heard two songs and decided to record a 4-song EP for the newly formed Mask label. The Heute EP was released in 1983 after a week of recording in Front 242's private studio under the direction of sound-whiz DANIEL B. Bearing in mind MIDI had not been invented at the time, the recording involved some extensive sound sculpting including the use of individual synths (PPG Wave, Syrinx, Roland System 100, etc.) for separate drum sounds. To create an organic feel to the combination of acoustic and electric guitar, a trumpet and a bass were incorporated into the electronic arrangements. Sonically way ahead of their time, Zwischenfall have a distinct sound with hard rhythms and melancholic melodies that blend minimal yet catchy electronics to create a very danceable production. All songs have been remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios. The EP features two bonus tracks from the “Heute” sessions never before released on vinyl: the uptempo "Tausend Jahre" and "Katastrophe" the demo version of “Flucht”. Each copy includes an 6-page press kit booklet with lyrics and photos and is housed in an exact replica of the original jacket.
