Anti-Establishment 1: Hamburg
"Anti-Establishment is a new series of 12"s from Italic and presents individual producers of electronic club music from selected cities. The first contribution is from Hamburg: the label Dial comes up with four tracks full of rocking minimalism, sad romanticism and abstract deepness. A1. Sten: Hypnotic minimal track with highly pressure funk from Pete Kersten aka Lawrence, the hero of sad deepness. A2. Lawrence: With his second track Lawrence dives in the deepness of 'the audition'. A film by Takashi Miike: 'the dark in the sunlight. What makes them different is what keeps them alive.' B1. Carsten Jost: The hero of working class starts the second side with a crisp groovy knister techno track. B2. Again Carsten Jost comes up with a more abstract micro minimal mover and gets back to the power of early techno. Very Anti-Establishment."
