Boomkat Product Review:
Having previously handed over the label's catalogue to Peter Grummich, resulting in the Dinner Music For Clubbers mix, Staubgold look to avant-garde maverick and electro-goth maestro Alec Empire for this latest selection. While Digital Hardcore fans might imagine Empire would look toward the very darkest material the label had to offer, there's a far broader, more discerning selection here, taking in the comparatively light-hearted lo-fi songwriting of Harald 'Sack' Ziegler, and the melodic electronica of Groenland Orchester and Mapstation as well as charging into more difficult sectors of the Staubgold discography. Faust crop up in a couple of places and founding member Hans Joachim Irmler makes an appearance alongside Timo Reuber on 'Kintopp Lifelike', which as with many of the selections here undergoes a remix at the hands of the curatorial Atari Teenage Riot frontman. These remixes and redubs make for some of the album's standout moments such as the brilliant 'ICE Bertolt Brecht' by Schwabinggrad Ballet and 'More People Than Two' by Mapstation (making their second appearance on the compilation). As an added treat the final track is an Alec Empire-produced 'Outro', resulting in an effective piece of electroacoustic drone, featuring a wonderfully woozy low end.
