Ivory Frequency

22 Nov

Truth be told, in the break of 21st century a lot of Greek EBM or electroc bands appeared.

Most of them managed to contact European Record labels and release their music over the Greek borders.

Siva Six was one of them, Blue Birds Refuse To Fly was an other one…

A number of others followed.

Ivory Frequency was the project of George Robos (I think he was the former keyboard player of the bands Enoho La – engl. Guilty la ελλ. Ενοχο λα – and Lefki Symfonia).

Based in Athens, he wrote a number of good EBM tracks and caught the attention of German label Dependent Records.

The first Ivory Frequency appearance was during September 2001, when the English band VNV Nation released the 4 track mini CD “Genesis 2“.

Giorgos Robos participated with a special mix of the song “Genesis”.

By the same month, Dependent Records released the single “Today” (01. Today Is The Day  02. Today Is The Day (Soda mix) 03. Brain Injection)

With Dependent Records releasing a promo single titled “The Strangest Callings”, strangely enough, Ivory Frequency released their first and last album on April 2002.

They have’n’t release a full length album sing.Dependent Records released a promo single titled “The Strangest Callings

The album title was “Plug In”.

02. The Strangest Callings
03. Beats & Demons

Ivory Frequency remixed also the track “Why Do I Hate Myself” of the band The Crystalline Effect (featured on their “Glass” album, released by Black Flames Records – Poland during 2005).

The song ”The Strangest Callings (Version II)” was featured in the compilation of the French magazine D Side in 2002 (among artists such as Peter Murphy, Daniel Ash, In The Nursery, Das Ich and Clan Of Xymox).

The same track was featured on the compilation of the German magazine Sonic Seducer in 2002.

Dependent Records featured Ivory Frequency tracks on three compilations: “Septic III”  (2002) “New Level Electronics” (2004) and “New Level Electronics Vol. 2” (2007).
