Following celebrating 30 years in the music business with their commemorative package ‘The Box 1983-2013’, German synth veterans CAMOUFLAGE released a new companion compilation ‘The Singles’ earlier this year.
The CD package comes with liner notes written by The Electricity Club’s Chi Ming Lai. Based on an edited version of his CAMOUFLAGE career summary to coincide with the release of ‘The Box 1983-2013’, the article was very much appreciated by band members Heiko Maile, Marcus Meyn and Oliver Kreyssig.
A definitive chronological collection of their short form releases as single edits, it features songs from their Billboard Dance Chart breakthrough ‘The Great Commandment’, their European smash ‘Love Is A Shield’ and German radio hit ‘Suspicious Love’ to more recent material such as ‘Me & You’ and ‘The Pleasure Remains’.
