This is part three of the Datapunk label's We Are Punks, CD compilation series, curated by Anthony Rother and including 4 previously-unreleased tracks. Almost a year has now gone by since the highly-acclaimed second edition of the Datapunk CD anthology -- high time, therefore, that the label states the position of its sound once more in the year 2008. We Are Punks 3 starts with something of a sensation: The remix of the 2005 Rother single "When The Sun Goes Down" is by none other than the Underground Resistance collective, which is headed up by "Mad Mike" Banks. The first tones that mark the cautious start to the remix, which is only available on this CD, and in which the bass drum only kicks in after two minutes, demonstrates that something interesting is going on at Datapunk right now. Also, in the trusted hands of main mix-man DJ Matthias Gustke, aka Ziel 100, an almost 80-minute long psychoactive cocktail has been created which impresses not least because the world of sounds continually avoids any clear classification of style. Unusually low key at the start, Bremen Herzblut and Spiel-Zeug-Schallplatten record producer Stephan Bodzin, and Patrick Zigon, known for his remixes for Cocoon, Treibstoff and Great Stuff, formulate a modern understanding of deep and harmonic techno which works really well, whether played in the nightclub setting or elsewhere. Later on, however, the energy levels increase considerably, and those who don't dance themselves into a sweat with the acoustic loss of control by Sven Väth and Anthony Rother ("S'Kränkt'), Hell + Rother's cryonic "Bodyfarm" inferno, the 2008 acid by Pig & Dan ("Dream Of Bells") or the tribal percussive dub-tech inferno of "Temperature" by Marcus Schmal aka Broombeck (previously known through his ambient project Guardner), surely aren't into techno. Other artists include: Loco Dice, Telekraft and Frank Kusserow.
