“After 10 years of planning and intensive artists-convincing, a dream for many collectors of minimal/synth-music and VOD has become reality.
A Vinyl-Box with early 80’s audio formerly released only on super-rare and higly collectable Tapes or on 7inch by two of the most radical Minimal/Synth artists from South-Germany with their projects Heute and Der Musikant (solo-project of Rolf with his name variations as Der Künftige Musikant, der Lustige Musikant, der Ewinge Musikant).
Almost 4 hours of greatest minimal/synth-based-tunes (2 Lp’s each by Heute and Der Musikant) compiled by VOD from more than 10 different early-80’s Tape-Releases, all released and distributed on their own Bu/Bu Musikverbreitung Label in the early to mid 80’s.
The Label and artists released their very own style of minimal „Präzisionsmusik“, music as unique as Minimal/Synth can only sound, standing the test of time, managing the path between the past and the future („Zwischen Gestern und Morgen“).Emotionally loaded rhythmic straight-forward tracks, with superbly schizophrenic, antagonistic and neurotic lyrics such as „Traurig-Lustig“.”
