02. Prinzhorn Dance School - Clay Class [DFA / Cooperative Music]
Well, I gotta admit that I am a bit of a fan boy when it comes to Prinzhorn Dance School as their raw, minimalist approach to PostPunk is the most spine-tingling musical discovery for me since... whatever. I totally love their music to death, got the most of their vinyl releases stuck somewhere in my shelves and that's the reason I bought this one, too. And it's great as expected - "Usurper", "Happy In Bits" and especially "The Flora And Fauna Of Britain In Bloom" are my personal favorites but I'm afraid that the average vinyl buyer, the average non-collecting listener is not about to share my passion just for this single LP being that fucking pricey. C'mon guys, even if you fucking love a band paying about 30+ € for eleven songs is not what the non-dedicated do and it makes no bit of a difference if there's a bonus CD album included or not. You get most 2xLP's in gatefold covers for a cheaper price these days and you won't gain more fans or attention for being expensive. That's what the labels have to think about. Now.

03. Atma - Lone Range Drifter [Govinda Records]

04. [aniYo kore] - Pieces Of Conversation [BOBHARRIS 001 Promo]

05. Björk - Biophilia Remixes Part One [One Little Indian Records]
Part 1 in series of eight 12"es accompanying Björks recent "Biophilia" album sees Berlin's hardest Current Value serving two massive Dub-/Drumstep variations of her tracks "Solstice" and "Crystalline", bringing out the ultimate darkness and a hyper-compressed structure underlying the ethereal but still insistent vocals. Reworks for the very late hours, when the dancefloor crowd needs the ultimate destruction.

06. Unbroken Dub - Kosmos EP [Rawax 010.2]
Actually there's a bit of hype going on when it comes to the colored vinyl stamped whitelabel imprint Rawax and actually I am not only a bit of a sceptic when it comes to hypes, especially when they're mostly build around the labels location and not necessarily around the music. So this one is the first fully convincing Rawax release to me - a blue 10" piece by Unbroken Dub including a nice, dreamy and melancholic piece of Detroit Techno for advanced dancefloors, a piece that's perfectly crafted to send punters home after a long ecstatic night whilst the flipside is a dubby, driving and slightly sci-fi'esque Techno piece, ever modulating and partly similar to what was once put out as "Function. Anticipation.", the tenth release on the now fully established and well spoken Sandwell District impint. A good one for sure.
