Update on Aug-05: The official video for Pakt‘s single “Freiheit” is online starting today! Enjoy!
Update on July-29: As of today, Pakt‘s website is online! Standing testimony to the seriousness of their newborn project, the site is ‘packed’ with all the traditional tools of a band website: bio, discography, media, gallery, and a plethora of sharing tools for social services! We really like the website and are going to bookmark: http://www.paktprodukt.de/. With a teasing tag line “two guys who just wanna play with you” the website also gives snippet preview of tracks from the forthcoming Pakt productions.
Out of Line announces the release of Pakt‘s first single on August-12! Pakt are Chris Ruiz and Gio von Oli, who have recently left And One. Their new act is not wasting any time, with a first single out next month (packed with remixes from DAF, Formalin and Funker Vogt), and a M’era Luna date! If you add to this the fact that the name of Pakt was on everyone’s lips at our recent visit to Amphi Festival, and many participants showed their support of the new act by buying and wearing Pakt merch, we know we need to keep our eyes and ears open for them!
Tracklist: “Freiheit” * “Angriff” * “Freiheit (Robert Goerl Remix by Robert Goerl of DAF)” * “Freiheit (Gummi-Drum-Remix by G.Thomas of Funker Vogt)” * “Freiheit (Freiheit und Gerechtigkeit Rework by Formalin)”

PAKT are: Chris Ruiz and Gio van Oli, two Electro-veterans that will probably ring a bell with most people close to the scene. PAKT are: darn stirring music probing the frontiers of EBM and Electro-Pop. PAKT are: heart, voice and mayhem. Right on time for their debut gig at the M’Era Luna Festival in August 2011, PAKT are dishing up their first single “Freiheit”, an electronic anthem that unleashes an onslaught of sly grins, massive bass, friendly aggression, ironic paroles and catchy melodies on a society that is going increasingly soft in the head. A dance-floor-compatible coup that encourages thinking and is perfect for letting go, singing along and going wild, “Freiheit” comes as a massive single version and in two clubby remixes. The “Freiheit”-single is topped-off with the mighty b-side smasher “Angriff.” It is time for a friendly takeover. It is time for … the PAKT! Don’t dream it, be it! (source)
