OBEN - Beltz Remixed
Matthias Beltz was a German comedian, author and TV/radio host until he suddenly died in 2002. Certainly a colorful and provocative mind, he left a collection of -- partially yet unreleased -- vocal recordings of his "lyrics." These come here enhanced with experimental compositions, samples and even radioplay-like materials from Oliver Augst and Rüdiger Carl. Badly Organized is the new Mille Plateaux sub-label for avant garde, Dada and obscure music. Label owner/A&R Marcus Gabler broadens Mille Plateaux's so far purely electronic range of genres with previously-unheard, odd sounds. This expansion allows for a new artistic freedom so far prevented by expectations, ambition and intellectual overhead. Or as Beltz would say: "Liberté, Égalité, Varieté!"
