Bloodbeat ist der Beat der Jahre ´78-´84, darüber hinaus und in die Jetzt-Zeit. Wir begeben uns auf eine (Party-)Reise von den ersten Versuchen auszubrechen im Punk Rock bis zur Befreiung im Post-Punk/New Wave. Doch die These gilt, dass damit noch lange nicht Schluss war/ist. Bloodbeat folgt dem weiten Experimentierfeld des Post-Punk bis ins Jahr 2023.
Das Bloodbeat-Team präsentiert diesmal:
A crowded nightclub. Shrill beats echo through the foggy room, rich synths waft across the space. Suddenly, a sad trumpet sound fills the dancefloor like a ghost: welcome to the world of DIE SELEKTION. 
Heavy-hearted but hopeful trumpet melodies, German lyrics that make you question your past and future once again, synthesizer sounds in the great tradition of heroes like Depeche Mode, DAF or Nitzer Ebb, combined with hard-hitting drum machines – this forms the base for DIE SELEKTION’s self-proclaimed Prosecco Wave world.
After thirteen years of shared band history, two studio albums, a number of singles, EPs and dozens of live shows in over 22 countries worldwide, the bandmembers Luca Gillian, Hannes Rief, Samuel Savenberg and Max Rieger turned DIE SELEKTION into an influential band that manages to bring both goth kids and techno fans onto the same dancefloor with a unique blend of Synth-Pop and Electronic Body Music. 
Arrived in 2023, the masters of Prosecco Wave are finally back with their third studio album ZEUGE AUS LICHT (out on September 29, 2023), the quartet (which however performs as a duo live) releases a new studio record into the wild and throws a rave on the ruins of the present, somewhere between the apocalypse and the rampant insanity of our times. The news songs expand the sound of the band with an almost casual, elegant diversity. Every single component shines, and an understanding of what makes pop really pop comes through that adds a knowing, ironic glitter to the black nihilism of dark electronic music. With no fear in its heart, DIE SELEKTION heads towards a new chapter. And we’re excited for all that comes next.
