Ich-AG Geige - Trickbeat [Arbeiten Und Nicht Verzweifeln 001 Promo]

Surprisingly and wrapped in hessian cloth this strange but well amusing little 7" has been sitting my postbox more recently, catering four tracks paying homage to the legendary late 80s / early 90s experimental East Germany-rooted band outfit AG Geige not only by its artist name as Ich-AG Geige but also by serving new interpretations of two songs taken off their 1991 album release "Raabe?". "Trickbeat" - also reworked by Bob Humid and $TKPR to full effect - is a lo-fi'ish, 8bit-flavored ArtSchool banger with a pretty seductive groove that makes your head pop back and forth within seconds whilst "Ich Bin Ihr Boy" on the flip comes up on a straight 4/4 MinimalPop-beat that unveils certain similarities to Cologne's late 90s school of so-called SchlagerTechno but lives up to a slightly Dorau'esque touch of the absurd whilst driving dancefloors mad. Rumours have it that this one is a limited to 300 copies vinyl only pressing - and a  recommended one indeed. Hunt a copy down if you can, coze it provides great fun.
