Ostgut Ton releases this unique compilation of music crafted from field recordings made inside the two Berlin clubs Berghain and Panorama Bar. The concept and original recordings were made by the Berlin-based producer, Emika. Over a period of two months, Emika created the recordings in the clubs while they were closed to the public and edited them into a library of sounds. The library was then given to all the Ostgut Ton artists, but also to club associates like DJ Pete aka Substance, Dinky, Cassy, Margaret Dygas, Ryan Elliott and Scuba, using his SCB alias, to make music with. This release marks the celebration of the label's five year anniversary. Emika's idea started from feeling the whole building resonating from the music being played, which led to the question: which sounds exist here when there is no party? Intrigued by stories of how the club spaces and sound systems influence the resident DJ sets and productions, Emika was curious to explore what music could be made from the building itself. Berghain's sound technicians Krischan Makswitat and Silvio König helped to record the entire light rig including the strobe lights, which in itself sounds like techno. Other interesting sources to record were the large cooling rooms used for storing thousands of drinks in bottles. The ventilation systems in these rooms make incredible sub-frequencies mixed with the sound of the bottles vibrating against each other. The club also contains large swings made from metal which creak and moan at the slightest of movement. In total, the library comprised over four gigabytes of sounds, and the artists were not given restrictions on how to make music from the library. The tracks on this compilation consist of each artist's signature production aesthetics and feature debut solo productions by residents Fiedel (one-half of seminal Berlin-based outfit MMM), Boris and Prosumer's long term production partner, Tama Sumo. All together, this release highlights the special and inseparable relationships between the label, club space, and collective of artists. Other artists include: Marcel Fengler, Nick Höppner, Shed, Steffi, Len Faki, Barker & Baumecker, Marcel Dettmann, Murat Tepeli (feat. Elif Biçer), Soundstream, Ben Klock, Norman Nodge, and Luke Slater.
