This is the first full-length release for Oliver Greschke alias Magnum 38 -- Germany's smartest weapon. After the release of his hit single Disco Toni (co-produced by T. Raumschmiere and remixed by Motor) Old Europe Strikes Back is an invitation to everybody to take part in the pleasure and pain of Magnum 38's everyday life: weird electronics, glam-pop, dancefloor hysteria, pathetic moments and a high risk of self-destruction all combine to create some graceful electronic noir -- crumbled, smashed and all mixed up again. Based upon his powerful gnarzy breakbeats and the weird noises that typically vitalize his productions, Magnum 38 reveals some new and unexpected sides of himself: spheric soundscapes, hysteric disco-rave sounds and poppy smash hits. Old Europe Strikes Back is not a concept album, but the result of Greschke's investigation in energies and subcultures all around the globe. Magnum 38, who has been part of the Shitkatapult label family right from the beginning, sucks up these energies like a black hole, searching for inspiration, selecting them, cutting them into small pieces and recompiling them into his very own vision of electronic music.
