2023 marks the 30th anniversary of DIGITAL FACTOR’s eventful history. For the
occasion, Mike Langer decided to make his new studio album “G.B.A.” a very special
release in many ways. First of all, DIGITAL FACTOR decided to make this album a
charity project where all proceeds will be donated to a foundation for disadvantaged
children (https://www.kinderstiftung-altenburg.de/), bringing back some humanity to
our crazy world and reminding all of us that music is a perfect media to set up con-
nection and bring us all together.
Mike Langer also took the challenge to collaborate on each new song with a different local artist from his hometown of Altenburg (Germany) giving to this new album a very eclectic and collaborative dimension. "As a musician, you always tend to say that the current album is THE special album. But the current work with numerous musicians from my hometown, all embracing my musical style, is truly something special", he explains.
This approach also marks a break from the usual quite dystopian lyrics. “G.B.A.”
carries hope and gives the positive message that “Even in difficult times there are
situations and people who are the light at the end of the tunnel”. The song "But not
today" probably best symbolizes the whole project thanks to the collaboration with
the samba/drummer group COMO VENTO who actually started themselves their
musical adventure as a socio-cultural project and has since attracted attention
DIGITAL FACTOR continues writing complex electronic music with an edge lead by
melodic synth pop lines and catchy vocals, the whole this time fully reinforced by the
diversity of the featured guests. The previous successful single "I am what I am" was
written this way with the punk singer Gwendolyn Gaffa from the band MORAFFA –
other highlights are "Hold the Hope" with singer Manuel Schmid from STERN MEISSEN
or "Don't speak for Me" with soul singer Rebecca Klukas or yet "Who is the Architect"
with singer-songwriter Franziska Haucke.
“G.B.A.” is that kind of album where each song, and talented guest vocalist, offers its very own sonic journey but where the top notch meticulous production work of Mike
Langer and the intricate catchy electronic compositions evoking the industrial/EBM
roots of DIGITAL FACTOR bring a certain consistent red line to the album as a whole,
what give to this collaborative charity project its very own colorful identity.
Happy Birthday DIGITAL FACTOR!
