‘Click Interview’ with Digital Factor: ‘Many Releases Today Are Unfortunately Very Uniform’

Hailing from the former Eastern part of Germany, DIGITAL FACTOR rapidly became a renowned and successful EBM formation during the 90s and early Millennium years. The band released multiple noticeable albums on the defunct Hypnobeat. They moved on releasing a few more productions after 2000, the last album “Trialog” being released in 2011. Core member Mike Langer brought DIGITAL FACTOR alive, started working on new material and found a deal with Alfa Matrix. The EP “Come With Me” released in 2020 was an appetizer to the this year unleashed new opus “A Chemical Process”. The work is still driven by EBM vibes, but also into Minimal-Electro treatments and Electro-Pop vibes. This is a new chapter in the band’s history and I talked about it with Mike Langer.

Q: Ten years have passed since the “Trialog”-album (2011) so how does it feel to be back with a new opus and how would you introduce DIGITAL FACTOR in 2021?

Mike: It is of course always a good feeling when you start with new material and especially when you get so much positive feedback on it. Usually this is more of a feedback when you’re on tour. But due to the Corona pandemic, significantly more is happening via social media.

DIGITAL FACTOR was and is a German Electronic band since 1993. We were one of the first bands in this genre from Eastern Germany to get a record deal after the fall of the Berlin Wall and to release a CD.
