Since their formation in their native Holland, Clan of Xymox has been constantly changing, always challenging and often quite breathtaking. Formed in 80’s Amsterdam and signed to leading English independent label 4AD, home at one time to the Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance, and Pixies among others. The 4AD period saw the release of the band’s self-titled debut album and the second album Medusa. Those two records were full of tumbling electro beats, throbbing sequencers and moody vocals.

Clan of Xymox became one of the pioneers of the dark and moody electronic music that later became known as darkwave. Later they got signed to a subsidiary of Polygram USA. Their releases as solely Xymox were in a more synthpop/dance music vein. This period was known as their most commercial one, having dance chart hits in the USA.

In 1997, Ronny Moorings made the decision to restart Clan of Xymox and return to his musical roots in the Gothic electro scene. Since then, the band signed to USA based Metropolis Records, releasing a series of critically acclaimed albums.

The band has released 15 studio albums, 2 DVD’s, a remix and live album, “Best Of” and even a covers album. In 2017, “Days Of Black“ was released worldwide. It remains faithful to its roots and new-wave basis, but progressively evolved towards more melodic and harmonious songs.

Clan of Xymox have done what many similar bands fail consistently to do. They’ve upped their game, shaken things around, plunged back into the darkness and come up with something sounding fresh, original, and exciting. To the great enthusiasm of their fans, the band still tours with great energy worldwide on a constant basis. Current line-up consists of: Ronny Moorings, Mojca, Mario, Sean and Daniel.

Fronted by veteran artist William Faith (of Faith and the Muse) and Sarah Rose (aka DJ Scary Lady Sarah), The Bellwether Syndicate are, as illustrated by their debut, coloring outside of prescribed genre lines, choosing here to push the boundaries of style and substance into something relevant and vital.

While the music is written and recorded by William and Sarah, the live show features collaborators Philly Peroxide (keyboards/percussion), Paul Sin (bass) and Faith’s long-time drummer Stevyn Grey. The Bellwether Syndicate present a powerful and commanding live performance, where the sound and substance of the recorded work truly comes to life; where the art is made whole by the audience — and this is a band that knows how to connect with its audience: not a typical fan base, but an engaged and invested network of family and familiars spanning the globe.

Front 242 **Free Show** Respectable Street 35th Anniversary Block Party – 9/17/22

Respectable Street + Heroes Live Entertainment present Front 242 Exclusive FL Show @ Respectable Street 35th Anniversary Block Party at 500 Block of Clematis St in West Palm Beach.


Free Event: https://front242.eventbrite.com

Front 242

Front 242’s history starts in 1981 when Daniel B. lays out his ideas on the first single: « Body to Body ». Patrick Codenys (keyboards) and Jean-Luc De Meyer (vocals) join the band for the first album « Geography » in (1982), followed by Richard 23 (vocalist/stage performer) in 1983.

While developing their own independent recording and graphic units, along with a unique presentation on stage, the band progressively reaches a larger audience in Europe, touring and releasing records of its brand new genre they soon label « Electronic Body Music (aka EBM) ».  EBM is a collage and synthesis of music and sounds, recycled from the media or TV, often reflecting or enriched by other artistic disciplines. In 1984, Front 242 signed on the label Wax Trax from Chicago. The EP « Take One » (1984) is their first U.S. release, their success there will be massive.

Gaining experience in large European festivals and U.S. shows from 1985, the band establishes itself as a very powerful live group, and EBM spreads across Europe. The albums « No Comment » (1985), « Official Version » (1987), and « Front By Front » (1988, including HeadHunter and Welcome to Paradise) seal Front 242’s international breakthrough and their status as an innovative and pioneering band.

Front 242’s vision continues to evolve toward fuller maturity after the acclaimed album « Tyranny For You » (1991). The two next albums, « 06:21:03:11 Up Evil » and « 05:22:09:12 Off » (1993) breakthrough the classical Front formula to bring in new vocalists, live guitars, and drums, along with a new producer, Andy Wallace (Nirvana, Sonic Youth). This begins by redistributing roles and rules within the group while retaining the scope of invention and the radical attitude that goes along with Front 242’s music.

During a four year hiatus (1993-1997), the band releases the albums « Live Code », recorded during their last world tour, and « Mut@ge – Mix@ge », a compilation album where The Prodigy, The Orb, Underworld, Rico Conning, and others propose innovative mixes of Front 242 tracks.

The four original members of the band reunited in 1997 and, with German drummer Tim Kroker, start performing live again. Several live albums follow, capturing the energy and reflecting the numerous changes brought in by the versions being performed on stage.

After a long studio absence, the EP « Still & Raw » and the Album « Pulse » come out in 2003. These records are based on aesthetics of the 70’s and ’80s. Here, Front 242 re-creates the original sound that was at the center of its art, enriched by 20 years of experience: analog technologies and vintage machines pulsing into deconstructed tracks where emotion and research are still conveyed by a purely electronic attitude.

Having re-released their back catalog in newer, enriched versions, and breaking from the idea that every live campaign must necessarily be preceded by a new album, Front 242 currently continues playing throughout the world with the same level of intensity, with the same success as ever, followed and cheered by crowds of loyal fans celebrating the band’s uniqueness and renowned integrity.

After a particularly rough solo performance in 2018 when one of her own friends talked loudly throughout her set, Christina Schneider exited the venue and told herself, “If they’re not even going to listen, then I’m fucking done.” It wasn’t quite the feeling she’d hoped for after dedicating her life to creating subversive, genre-fluid pop music. Working under various aliases since 2014 — including CE Schneider Topical, Jepeto Solutions, Christina Schneider’s Genius Grant and now Locate S,1 — she’s explored everything from groovy garage rock to minimalist
bedroom pop to Syd Barrett-style psychedelia.

Modern English: After The Snow Tour – NEW DATE – 3/12/22

Heroes Live Entertainment presents Modern English: After The Snow Tour @ Respectable Street in West Palm Beach. Special guests: Entertainment. NEW DATE: Saturday, March 12th, 2022. Tickets for the original date will be honored.

Tickets: https://modernenglish.eventbrite.com

Legendary British band Modern English kick off their 2022 North American headline tour Saturday, March 12 at Respectable St. in West Palm Beach, Florida. Modern English will perform its classic 1982 album, After the Snow, in its entirety—along with classics from its extensive catalog.

Frontman Robbie Grey had the following to share about the upcoming 2022 North American run: “When we finally play the whole of ‘After the Snow’ album for the first time on tour, emotions will run high. Expect a lot of pent up energy and excitement. It’s been a long time coming and will be worth the wait.”

Modern English

Simply put, “I Melt With You” by Modern English is one of the most iconic songs of the New Wave era. It garnered heavy rotation on the then-thriving Modern Rock radio format, MTV and dance clubs across the globe, and was prominently featured in the classic 1983 film Valley Girl, starring a young Nicolas Cage.

On 1982’s After the Snow, the band’s sound evolved from the dark, moody and challenging post-punk found on its debut, Mesh & Lace, to a more commercial and radio friendly mix of synthesizers, guitars, catchy drumbeats and singer Robbie Grey’s unmistakable vocals. As the title suggests, the icy sound featured on Mesh & Lace melted away on After the Snow to reveal more concise and potent songs, highlighted by “I Melt With You” which brought the band up from the underground to the mainstream. It’s a song so popular that the band was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2020 BMI Awards for six million plays on radio. After the Snow was produced by the acclaimed Hugh Jones whose production credits include albums by Echo and the Bunnymen, Simple Minds, The Damned and many more, and the LP was released on the legendary 4AD Records in the UK and licensed to Sire Records in the U.S.

Formed in Colchester, England, the band self-released its first single on its own Limp Records label prior to signing to 4AD, home to such like-minded acts as Bauhaus, Cocteau Twins and Dead Can Dance. Laying the foundation for future musical movements such as goth and industrial, Modern English would gain the attention of renowned BBC DJ John Peel, who featured the band twice on his program.

Modern English would record various records over the years, and most recently, the band released its latest album, 2017’s Take Me To The Trees, an album that reconnected the band to their youth, in the fervent and fecund world of late 1970s/early 1980s post-punk Britain. Given Modern English’s roots were post-punk icons Wire and Joy Division – dark and austere while still melodic and passionate – Take Me To The Trees is a return to the sound and vision of their very early work that even James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem has described as “a sneaky secret that everyone writes off, because they just think it’s going to be a ‘I Melt With You’ but it sounds way scarier than any Joy Division record [Mesh & Lace].”

Anything Box

Formed in 1986 by Claude S. with two friends, Dania Morales and Paul Rijnders, the New Jersey trio Anything Box took their name from the title of a book of short stories.

They returned a year later with their second album, Worth produced by Gareth Jones (Depeche Mode, Einstürzende Neubauten, Wire, Erasure). With a current lineup consisting solely of Claude Strilio, Anything Box continues to incorporate more and more influences into its electronic pop framework.

Nitzer Ebb – 11/19/21

Heroes Live Entertainment presents Nitzer Ebb with special guests Alpha Quadrant and DJ Paul Klov @ Respectable Street in West Palm Beach.

Tickets: https://nitzerebb.eventbrite.com

Join in the chant! The British pioneers of EBM return to South Florida!

Britain’s Nitzer Ebb are one of the most influential acts associated with the EBM (electronic body music) scene, as well as alternative dance in general. Since the early ’80s, the group, led by enthusiastic frontman Douglas McCarthy, have produced an aggressive, visceral brand of electronic music influenced by German industrial and new wave groups like Die Krupps and D.A.F. The group remains best known for the classic “Join in the Chant,” a single taken from 1987’s That Total Age that became a staple of dance clubs from Ibiza to Detroit. Subsequent albums such as 1991’s Ebbhead displayed more of an interest in pop songcraft, and found some success on alternative radio. Nitzer Ebb broke up following 1995’s Big Hit, which featured a greater presence of non-electronic instruments, but they reunited over a decade later, as their influence on newer generations of industrial and hard-edged techno artists continued to grow. After Industrial Complex appeared in 2010, Nitzer Ebb went on hiatus again, but they re-formed with all of their founding members in 2018 for a tour and retrospective box set.

Formed in Chelmsford, Essex, in 1982 by vocalist Douglas McCarthy, drummer Bon Harris, and keyboard player David Gooday, the group began experimenting with synthesizers and drum pads, fusing the bandmembers’ affinity for dark goth and punk rock with the emerging technology. A demo cassette titled Basic Pain Procedure appeared in 1983. After several popular shows around London during 1984, PWL producer Phil Harding began working with Nitzer Ebb and recorded their first single, “Isn’t It Funny How Your Body Works,” which appeared on the band’s Power of Voice Communications label in 1985. Three more singles followed during 1985-1986 before Nitzer Ebb signed to Mute in late 1986; the first Mute recordings were the singles “Murderous” and “Let Your Body Learn” in early 1987, just before the release of their debut album, That Total Age. After the single “Join in the Chant” was remixed by producer Flood (Nick Cave, Erasure), it became one of the crucial tracks in the growing alternative/Balearic dance scene, played out alongside Chicago house, Detroit techno, and Northern soul.

After the release of That Total Age, Nitzer Ebb toured Europe with Depeche Mode, and the latter band’s pop sensibilities appeared to inspire them. By the time of their second album, Belief, Gooday had disappeared (to be replaced by Julian Beeston) and Flood had taken over the producer’s role from Harding, nudging Nitzer Ebb closer to the dancefloor and shearing away the militaristic bent of much of their earlier recordings. Singles like “Hearts and Minds,” “Shame,” and “Lightning Man” were loaded with the cold aggression of earlier recordings, working well on dancefloors as well as college radio stations; the 1990 single “Fun to Be Had” even reached number two on the dance charts. The following year’s Ebbhead further consolidated their position with alternative audiences, with at least two well-known singles, “I Give to You” and “Godhead.”

Nitzer Ebb virtually disappeared from active music-making for the next four years, finally reappearing in 1995 with their fifth (and least industrial-sounding) album, Big Hit. The group became inactive, but McCarthy became a regular collaborator with Alan Wilder’s Recoil project, and formed the duo Fixmer/McCarthy with techno producer Terence Fixmer. The compilation Body of Work 1984-1997 appeared in 2006 and was immediately followed by set of new remixes titled Body Rework. After a reunion tour to support the releases proved successful, the group began working on new material. In January of 2010 they released Industrial Complex, their first studio album in 15 years and their first for the Alpha Matrix label. Nitzer Ebb then toured with Die Krupps, issuing the joint EP Join in the Rhythm of Machines in 2011. The following year, Basic Pain Procedure was reissued by Pylon Records.

Box Set [1982-2010] was released in 2018, containing double-LP reissues of Nitzer Ebb’s five albums for Mute, as well as empty slots for their other two full-lengths, which remained in print. Additionally, the band’s original lineup began performing for the first time since 1987.

Eyehategod: A History of Nomadic Behavior Tour – 10/24/21

Heroes Live Entertainment presents EYEHATEGOD with Ether Coven and Seven Serpents @ Respectable Street in West Palm Beach.


Tickets: https://eyehategod2021.eventbrite.com

New Orleans’ EYEHATEGOD is the snarling, bilious sound of dead-end America. Since 1988, they’ve been a soundtrack for the troubled masses. Ugly music for ugly times. That’s the sense of disenchantment and disease that lies at the heart of their latest and sixth full-length album, A History of Nomadic Behavior. Anyone familiar with EHG’s story knows this is survivor’s music, a sound unto itself where Sabbathian riffs are meted out with caustic anger that goes beyond punk. That’s been the blueprint since guitarist Jimmy Bower (also of NOLA supergroup, Down) founded the band in 1988 with vocalist Michael IX Williams joining not long after. With a discography including sludge-punk mainstays like In the Name of Suffering (1990), Take as Needed for Pain (1993) Dopesick (1996), or 2014’s eponymously-titled LP, released in the US through Housecore Records, EHG laid the cracked foundation for their infamous and influential sound. A History of Nomadic Behavior finds the band, now slimmed to a four-piece rounded out by bassist Gary Mader and drummer Aaron Hill, leaner and meaner than ever; road-hardened by recent tours with Black Label Society, Corrosion of Conformity and Napalm Death in the US, and abroad. From the bitter pill of opener “Built Beneath the Lies” to the hypnotic haze of closer “Every Thing, Every Day” it’s clear that EYEHATEGOD hasn’t slowed or mellowed with time. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. This is disorienting, uneasy listening. Music that still very much hurts.

“The quintessential Southern sludge band” – PITCHFORK

“This [is] a band built on a narrative about doing the opposite of what it thought people wanted: playing slow and messy music in a fast and virtuosic time, the 1980s speed-metal moment.” – NY TIMES

“…True musical pioneers in every sense of the word.” – THRASHER MAGAZINE

The Ocean Blue arrived as the 1980s drew to close, and their debut record on the famed Sire Records label in 1989 seemed to summarize the best of the musical decade. The band of four teenagers from Hershey, Pennsylvania quickly achieved widespread acclaim and radio & MTV airplay, with top 10 Modern Rock/College Radio hits like Between Something and Nothing and Drifting, Falling. They followed their debut release with the subtle and atmospheric Cerulean, which included perhaps their most beloved song, Ballerina Out of Control, and followed that with their highest charting pop album Beneath the Rhythm and Sound and the single Sublime, featuring a video of the band in the sublime landscape of Iceland. The band’s fourth record for Mercury/PolyGram, See The Ocean Blue, was a departure to a more guitar rock sound of the 60s and 70s, but with the band’s 80s DNA peeking through. After a busy decade of recording and touring, the band left the majors in the late 90s. Several independent releases and related touring followed in the 2000s, including 2000’s Davy Jones Locker and 2004’s Waterworks EP, and some wider international touring. In 2013, after much anticipation, the band released their first full length record in over 10 years, Ultramarine, on Korda Records, a Minneapolis-based label cooperative label the band helped launch that same year. The record was a welcome return for fans of the band and a younger generation of fans, and garnered widespread praise as one of their very best albums. In 2015, the band worked with Sire and Rhino Records to reissue their first 3 Sire albums on vinyl. The band marked the occasion by performing the first 2 albums in their entirety at limited concerts throughout the U.S. In 2016, the band did a full South American Tour where some of their most passionate fans reside.

The band has now returned with their signature dream pop sound on the beautifully powerful Kings and Queens / Knaves and Thieves. Out now on Korda Records. See the band on tour in 2019-2021.

KRS-One – 1/12/20

Heroes Live Entertainment presents KRS-One with special guests Official Bobby Booshay, Hakim Green (Channel Live), Serum & DJ Heron @ Respectable Street in West Palm Beach.


Tickets: https://krs-one-wpb.eventbrite.com

KRS-One, an acronym for “Knowledge Reigning Supreme”, has been called the “conscience of Hip Hop” (Rolling Stone), “the greatest live emcee ever” (The Source), the “spokesperson for Hip Hop” (Wall Street Journal), “master teacher” (Zulu Nation) and the “son of Hip Hop” (Kool DJ Herc).

At the 2008 BET Awards, KRS-One was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award for all his work and effort towards the Stop the Violence Movement as well as the overall pioneering of hip hop music and culture.

VIP Seating for the KRS-One show includes a bottle of your choice of liquor, mixers and cocktail server for a party up to four for $350. GA ticket is required and separate. Very limited availability. Email kristenjkelly@gmail.com to reserve your VIP seats.
KRS-One
 

Appearing on the rap scene in 1986 as Boogie Down Productions releasing his first hit single “South Bronx” with his late DJ Scott La Rock, KRS “the one” made it clear that Hip Hop was going to have to take itself a lot more seriously than simply being a music genre.

With 20 published albums to his credit and his numerous appearances with other artists, KRS-One is believed to have written the most rhymes in Hip Hop’s history.

In the 1990s as “hip-hop” grew more and more commercialized and corporate, it was KRS-One that openly rejected such cultural exploitation and materialism grounding Hip Hop in its original principles of peace, love, unity and safely having fun.

Teaching everything from self-creation to stopping violence; from vegetarianism to transcendental meditation, from the establishment of Hip Hop Appreciation Week (every third week in May), to establishing Hip Hop as an international culture at the United Nations (2001), KRS-One has single-handedly held the history and original arts of Hip Hop together now for over two decades.

In addition to lecturing at over 500 universities in the United States and publishing three ground-breaking books; “The Science of Rap” (1995), “Ruminations” (2003), and the Gospel of Hip Hop” (2009), KRS-One has also established the Stop The Violence Movement (1989), influenced the creation of the “West-Coast All-Stars’ anti-gang anthem “We’re All In The Same Gang” (1990), warned the Hip Hop community against giving up their humanity for technological advancement (H. E. A. L.—Human Education Against Lies-1991), and has established the Temple of Hip Hop for the spiritual exploration of Hip Hop’s culture (1996).

It was KRS-One who first argued that “rap is something we do; Hip Hop is something we live” and introduced the “I am Hip Hop” philosophy in 1994 which Black Entertainment Television uses as the title of their Hip Hop Lifetime Achievement Award today. Without question, KRS-One has been the loudest voice for the actual preservation and expansion of original Hip Hop worldwide.

When he is not touring or lecturing, on his so-called “down-time”, KRS-One continues to share his unique knowledge of Hip Hop to younger audiences eager to hear the ‘teacha’ speak. Operating as a kind of “pop-up” school, KRS-One’s Temple of Hip Hop has appeared in various cities in USA also in the UK and Europe offering the more serious student of Hip Hop an effective way to live and understand the culture of Hip Hop more deeply.

KRS-One, the lyrical legend, drops his new 2017 album ‘The World Is Mind’. KRS-One brings that Boom Bap back, with tracks like; ‘Raw BEAT’ and the graffiti tribute ‘Out for Fame’. In addition KRS-One celebrates the South African clique langue on ‘Keep It Clicking’ and shares ancient wisdom on the title track ‘The World Is Mind’. This is another banger from the Hip Hop legend.

DJ Heron
 
DJ Heron, born in Lima, Peru raised in Brooklyn, New York he is undoubtedly no stranger to the hip-hop culture. Hip-Hop started with DJ and that’s what DJ Heron has been doing since the young age of 12 years old. Roaming the streets of Brooklyn, his older cousin made him carry countless of records that it was only a matter of time for Heron to start doing what he does best; being on the 1’s and 2’s. Couple of years later, he moved to South Florida to bless locals with sounds of the underground Hip-Hop that was hitting the airwaves in New York. Since there was a lack of Hip-Hop culture in Florida, DJ Heron would take frequent trips back to New York for the weekend just to record the hottest releases and formulate high- demand mix tapes Floridians would insist for when he would fly back down.
 
Apart from selling exclusive rare mix tapes, he started his first production company called 3rd Eye Productions with partner DJ Klassik now known as DJ Chris. During that time, DJ Heron starting producing vicious beats which were the ember that made him establish his own first studio called Florida Room Productions. Creating a buzz with his production, he landed his first record deal with Atlantic at just 18 years old. Unfortunately after 7 years the studio was robbed leaving him without his tools but not his luck. Shortly after the robbery occurred, a new door opened for DJ Heron that would change his career forever. Sony Music Records signed DJ Heron to their label giving him the opportunities to work with several artists, make his own productions, and go on the White Lion Tour that featured Tego Calderon, DJ Laz, Don Omar, and Voltio.
 
Having much success throughout his career, DJ Heron has opened up for many hip hop shows including Black Sheep, Leaders of the New School, Public Enemy with Queen Latifah, Tim Dog, and Termanology just to name a few . Furthermore, he was also the winner of the Pro AM DJ Battle of 2011 in which he competed with several other DJs nationwide. Side by side with host/ emcee Saheed, DJ Heron is now the main resident DJ of Re-Up radio, an online radio show airing every week playing old school, new school, and independent Hip-Hop artists music worldwide to fans tuning in across the globe. It won’t be long till’ you hear DJ Heron’s skills with upcoming Re-Up Radio mix tapes soon to be released throughout the year.
