monoton - Monotonprodukt 07 (Red Vinyl Edition)

*Limited third Edition, comes on red vinyl* *A holy grail of electronic music reissued on vinyl for the first time in 30 years, beautiful pressing housed in a deluxe gatefold edition limited to just 300 copies for the world* 'Monotonprodukt 07' has certified holy grail status in the world of electronic music. Originally issued by Konrad Becker aka Monoton in 1982 on a then-tiny run of 500 copies, it has been marked out as a genuine milestone by successive waves of respected institutions, featuring in The Wire magazine's '100 Records That Set The World On Fire' and Woebot's '100 Greatest Records Ever' list, respectively. A CD reissue appeared nearly ten years ago, and this faithful edition marks thirty years since it was last pressed to vinyl. As a child of the '60s inspired by popular sci-fi, who creatively matured during the late '70s era of Kraftwerk and kosmische, Konrad Becker was obsessed with ideas of automated machine music, applying "meta-mathematical structures, natural constants and resonance patterns in models of "bionic" psycho-active automat music". This aesthetic is clearly reflected in the LP artwork - blank staves begging to be transformed - and the music, a monotonous moire of motorik rhythm and stark synthetic tones perhaps best compared with the likes of Conrad Schnitzler, Craig Leon or Suicide, and hailed as "the square root of Basic Channel, Kompakt and Oval" by the ever-trustworthy Matt "Woebot" Ingram. I'm not going to front - apart from a few youtube videos, i'd never heard this album before - but one listen through affirms why it's held in such high regard; this is a methodical, masterfully trippy and forward thinking electronic music, one which consolidates opposing ideas with unsentimental and forward thinking vision, while rooted in something primally affective and mysterious. Basically it's sh*t hot. Don't miss!
