Various Artists - Presseschau Austria [Raketenbasis Haberlandstrasse 010]
Another fresh one and the first two digit release for the Munich-based tape imprint Raketenbasis Haberlandstrasse is the April 1st-released compilation "Presseschau Austria" featuring a bunch of fourteen super sick tracks by Venderstrooik, 480billion, Fabio Crivellaro, Grindmaster Flesh, Cyperkid, Ratte Panaso as well as Jacky Hamels feat. Käse Knös, all providing one or more LoFi ***core tracks to the album with each and every tune named after a (head)line seemingly found in the Austrian yellow press. A concept well-obscure and so it's no wonder that the musical side of things is fully living up to this obscurity - think tracker aesthetics, cassette mastering, bleepy Nintendo Techno, 4bit Drum'n'Wave, mangy Break- / DistortionCore, distorted ElectronicaHop, DarkJungle on hyperspeed and quirky Noize experiments. Limited to only 40 copies worldwide "Presseschau Austria" caters all the muscial needs of those loving the way leftfield in electronic music as well as a proper DIY underground attitude.
