baze.djunkiii Charts 04/2017

01. Depeche Mode - Where's The Revolution *Musikexpress Exclusive Vinyl [Mute Records / Columbia Records]
What a massive gem, this is. Not only is "Where's The Revolution" a great first single taken from the new Depeche Mode album "Spirit" and a massive hit in its own right. This special 7" version is an exclusive collectors edition that came along with the March issue of German Musikexpress magazine featuring an epic November 2013 live recording of "Should Be Higher", a tune that was found on the bands last longplay piece "Delta Machine".

02. Modulator - Acid Bangin' [Analog Records USA 043]

03. Various Artists - World Of Rubber 3 [Rubber]
Massive limited white vinyl compilation release put on the circuit only recently via the quite mysterious Rubber imprint. Featuring the likes of Group A, Interstellar Funk, Leuk En Ko and Overdose we're taken on a journey into the deepest depths of the musical underground, touching base with hypnotic, yet depressive (No)Wave vs. PostPunk crossovers, tripping, seductive Acid modulations, a novelty approach to MinimalWave with Dutch (!!!) vocals and nerve-wrecking underground Techno, represented by tunes all fascinating and dancefloor working for reasons apparent. Recommended!

04. Amboss - Vision [Praxis 053]
Going back to the year 2014 with this brutal banger released on Berlin's Praxis label. Crossing over between Breakcore, superviolent Drumstep and devastating DarkJungle as well as incorporating a sparse, cold Industrial Dubstep excursion and a banging, uncompromising Hardcore attack, the four tracks on this 12" leave traces of blood on the dancefloor whenever hammered on a proper rig. This is a hard one!

05. Electric Kettle - News From Berlin [Praxis 050]
Released back in 2012 I discovered this four track Breakcore gem only recently, a piece created by Electric Kettle whom I personally hold in high regards since the release of his 2003 debut "Faster Ceremony And Ultra Discipline" and who's defo able to keep up with high expectation levels on this 12". Extremely detailed production, splintered beats, a certain amount of structured, anthemic sonic ultraviolence and - of course - tons of darkness bring in loads of destructive pleasure for every fans of hard-edged electronic music.

06. The Convent - 1986 - 2016 [Sireena Records]
What's to say about a band that's been around for 30 years without breaking up officially despite going on a long lasting hiatus after their last - and 2002 released - album? Celebrating their 30th anniversary in 2016 and playing shows again the Wave- and PostPunk-informed IndiePop outfit The Convent is back on track with a massive, limited to 500 hand-numbered copies retrospective compilation compiled by fans, friends and band members including songs from the bands previous albums and early single releases as well as previously unreleased gems, alternative versions and remixes. A massive collectors package this is, especially for those who love their melancholia-inducing guitars to the max. And well, Jojo Brandt, one of the bands founding members is an old friend of mine... so it's needless to say that this one is highly recommended for a reason.
