Grün

Bureau B

Format_dot_vinylLP // £18.99

EARLY ELECTRONIC / SOUNDTRACKS

Cat. Number: BB195LP

*Digipak reissue with liner notes by Asmus Tietchens* Grün appeared in 1981, but contained recordings from the years 1976 to 1980. Schnitzler's tracks in the 1970s were lengthy and shared a musical pattern which varied only minimally. Hence the green album has just one track on each side and any changes in melodic structure are subtle in nature. Both pieces are very much typical of Schnitzler in style, but less so tonally. An analogue rhythm machine ploughs almost brutally through the astoundingly delicate electronic veil of "Der Riese und seine Frau" ("The giant and his wife"), bearing littl… Read more

EARLY ELECTRONIC / SOUNDTRACKS

Gelb appeared in 1981, but contained recordings from the year 1974, originally released in a limited run on cassette ("The Black Cassette"). The chronology of Schnitzler's solo releases in the 1970s-and even more so in the 80s-resembles a book with seven seals. Schnitzler regularly issued his music on analogue cassette or LP, often on his own as "private releases", without any help from a label or professional distributor. Gelb, for example, was issued on vinyl in 1981 by a private press run by an art gallery - Edition Block. The album is subtitled "12 pieces from the year 1974", pointing to … Read more

My Block EP

OSTGUT TON

Format_dot_vinyl12" // £8.49

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: OSTGUTTON84

Hard-assed and shifty techno bangers from NYC strongman Anthony Parasole for Ostgut Ton. A regular feature on Berghain line-ups and playlists, Parasole's music perfectly fits the bill for haughty techno with a slinky-but-brute big room heft. 'My Block' starts the dance with soured lead line and infectiously latinate drum patterns before 'Bizarre' puts the kicks in with belly buckling force under heady chimes. 'Typhoon' sustains the intensity with a more submerged feel, like some Von Oswald or NWAQ joint pitched up and pounded into submission.

After 30 years spent sitting in a San Francisco basement, this incredible lost opus from disco pioneer Patrick Cowley and Indoor Life's Jorge Socarras is finally unearthed and given a much needed lease of life by Stefan Goldman and his Macro label. This is some prime wavey-disco and proto-techno gear, produced between 1976-79 at a time when Cowley was starting to get recognition for his synthesizer driven disco tracks and edits, but also studying electronic composition in San Fran, concocting with Socarras an ahead-of-its-time blend of avant-synth-pop and disco-electronica whi… Read more

Formed in 1983 as an experiment to break the mold of the classic disco dance sound, Charlie was the vehicle for musician and producer Maurizio Cavalieri who had found fame with Italian disco group Firefly.

"In 1986, the year Kicking Against The Pricks - a cover album - was released, then 28-year-old Nick Cave was the object of both reverence and antagonism in the contemporary press. In interviews he's baited, held up as genius, soothsayer and arrogant, autistic nutcase.
