Gerne Als Swap Oder Auch Gegen Ein Bisschen Geld
Munich-based imprints Raketenbasis Haberlandstrasse and Schamoni Musik present their first joint release, Gerne als Swap oder auch gegen ein bisschen Geld. Containing music by Munich-based artist BELP and tracks produced by Sascha Schierloh aka Jean Bach under various alias including Genoveva DMS, Leprozid Pfarrhaus, David Sardelle, and Mortobello Steril, the album resuscitates the age-old and seemingly forgotten concept of the vinyl megamix and offers a seamless yet quite quirky blend of tracks on each side. But instead of focusing on pop, Italodisco, or dance -- genres predestined for the megamix format -- this novelty record focuses on the leftfield side of the electronic spectrum and presents a variety of styles including industrial electronics, slowcore armchair techno, unambient, electronica, abstract electro, and more, all mixed up, clashing, trainwrecked -- as well as additional loops and layers taken from radio and television recordings, plus German schlager music. Sound like a rollercoaster-ride? It is, and a demanding one, even for those in love with plunderphonics and illbient. Check it out if you're up for a challenge!
