Various Artists - My [MHz]

Going back to the year 2005 with a review of "My", a six track compilation EP released via the now seemingly defunct MHz-label which was handed to us as a very belated promo copy earlier this year. Released as limited run of 100 copies all housed in a small woolen knit-bag we see artists like the infamous Klangstabil, Priester Kunst, Sascha Müller, Screening, Dai and Ukuphambana all making a contribution to this six-track comp which explores a musical range including intense Noize / Death Ambient-crossovers as to be found in Klangstabil's "Super2", minimalistic Rhythm Noize / Clicks'n'Cuts in Priester Kunst's "Rauschgebet" and a stripped down, seemingly electroacoustic Ambient / Electronica fusion in Sascha Müller's "Electron" whilst the flipside offers a beautiful take on free floating ChillOut with Screening's "Pits", explores distorted, dubbed out Leftfield Folk / Indietronics accompanied by Phonk-driven electronic rhythm signatures for advanced dancefloors of the future with Dai's "Body Tek Trash" and finally employs a dark'ish, swampy Rhythm Industrial attitude in Ukuphambana's "Ungral Disastro" which might be a minor hit in alien underground parties up to this day. Good stuff from a distant past!
