Various Artists - Gerne Als Swap Oder Auch Gegen Ein Bisschen Geld [Raketenbasis Haberlandstrasse 002 / Schamoni Musik]
If you're following baze.djunkiii on Youtube you might already be aware of the fact that the new and first conjunctional vinyl release of the Munich-based imprints Raketenbasis Haberlandstrasse and Schamoni Musik is due for release on October 30, 2k15 and has been sitting in our postbox only recently. Entitled "Gerne Als Swap Oder Auch Gegen Ein Bisschen Geld" this longplay piece, containing both music by the Munich-based artist BELP as well as tracks produced by Sascha Schierloh a.k.a. Jean Bach under various aliases like Genoveva DMS, Leprozid Pfarrhaus, David Sardelle and Mortobello Steril, resuscitates the age old and seemingly forgotten concept of the vinyl megamix and caters a seamless, yet quite quirky blend of tracks on each side - incorporating tunes like "Ich Musste Mal Im Sommer Weihnachtslieder Schreiben", "Sunrise Over Japan", "Gana Vortex" and "Der Skilift Ist Wieder Heil Remix". But instead of focusing on Pop, ItaloDisco or Dance, genres predestined for the megamix format, this novelty record keeps an eye out on the very leftfield side of the electronic spectrum and presents a variety of styles and takes us on a journey through Industrial Electronics, slowcore Armchair Techno, Unambient, Electronica, Abstract Electro and more; all mixed up, partly heavily clashing and trainwrecked as well as featuring additional loops and layers taken from radio or television recordings as well as - sic!!! - German Schlager. Sounds like a rollercoaster ride? It's one for sure - and a demanding one, even for those being in love with Plunderphonics and Illbient. Check out if you're up for a challenge!
