May 16 2006

Group DE / VISION was founded in 1988 in a small German town of Bensheim. The first song in the near future in the popular De / Vision has recorded «Your Hands On My Skin», the single was released in 1990. In that year, this track also entered the international collection of electronic music «Electro Revenge». 2 years later, in September 1992, the band released one more 12-inch single «Boy On The Street», which has been written already on their own label «SPR». The single was fully financed and distributed by members of the group and is a real rarity.

The spring of 1993, De / Vision signed a long-term contract with a recording studio «Strange Ways Records Hamburg», thus, our talented team is able to offer their music is much larger audience.

After the crazy success of the discos of their third single, «Try To Forget», released in August 1993, the group sat down to record a full album. In January 1994 the guys finally released his first album «World Without End», smiksovanny Alex Henninger (Camouflage). Following the album was followed by two singles - «Dinner Without Grace» and «Love Me Again» in the summer of that year, their producer was once again Alex.

Since the beginning of January 1995 on the shelves appeared the third super-hit by De / Vision «Blue Moon», which was filmed the video, and a second album - «Unversed In Love». Endless popular songs in the ethers of German radio stations, clubs, record store and charts of the country, made the De / Vision the most popular synth-popproektom in Germany. And in August 1995 they released their next single - «Dress Me When I Bleed». Almost immediately followed, and a concert tour of the fan-clubs of the country, as well as participate in the collection of electronic music «E-Beat» together with the famous synth-pop bands.

During several tours in Germany, the group demonstrated its new repertoire and again and again argued that the electronic music can be far from monotonous and repetitive. But those few shows were only a precursor of the big tour, in which also included two performances with the legendary Camouflage, concerts in Sweden and attended the annual meeting of fans of Depeche Mode, where De / Vision played in front of more than two thousand spectators.

Not surprisingly, the German music magazine «New Life» called De / Vision German group number 1 in that year.

Over the years musicians have tried almost all variations of electronic music. On the album «Void» published in the 1999th, they even experimented with the guitar arrangements and integrated electronics. In that year, De / Vision climbed all the possible top of the charts, and at this time the group left its founder Marcus.

Two of the remaining musicians, faced with a phase of complete reorientation, with the trio on the duo. Released on new label Drakkar album «Two» in 2001 to the year it took some time for further adaptation. Two follow-up album «Devolution» (2003) and "6 Feet Underground» (2004) showed that the group is still functional and capable of creating these hits. Cohesion and give the group a unique sound of its two producers - Arne Schumann and Joseph Bach.

And now came the turn of the tenth studio album, "Subkutan". Electropop, penetrating the skin - that's what you can say about their new album. This album returns De / Vision in their youth, namely, to a wide field of electronic music, open to stylistic changes, consisting of deep emotional tracks and the dance synth-pop.

Open on a new album track «Subtronic» shows us that Thomas and Steffen not use traditional methods of composition, and pick up the influence of modern dance genre. Now De / Vision appeared and electro-bottoms, of course, he makes a record of one of the most memorable in the work group. So the whole new album full of beats, creating the illusion of instrumental composition until his background does not appear for the soul of catchy vocals Steffen. Track «The End» is an excellent example of how the Germans began to work with elements of noise to which they are drawn more from the output of "Void". Track "Addict" proves that the group has no problems with the creation of an infinitely touching and lovely synth-pop compositions.

In other words "Subkutan" great album shows us the De / Vision reaching for new musical paths, and not forgetting the glorious past. Electropop, penetrating the skin - that's how you can describe their new album.

Since April 7, the group went on a world tour in support of the album. Group will visit us after the performances in Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Britain, Spain and Latvia. For the third successive season the Germans delight us with their live performances, each time collecting the notices. 27 th and 29 th May 2006 De / Vision will give two fantastic concert - in St. Petersburg and Moscow.
