"EFA is proud to present the compilation Hinterzimmer_Pop. Attention! This CD is not a mixture of radio hits or commercial tunes. This compilation contains exclusive tracks of the independent electronica scene in Germany. Hinterzimmer_Pop consists of music which is located beside the mainstream. Thus, this compilation was combined for open-minded people searching for new pieces which complete their 'personal discotheque'. All songs belong to electronic music in its broadest sense. Some pieces such as Mense Reents 'This Is The Way' , Stuerz's 'So Wenig Wie Möglich' or Jan Gazarras 'Blow' could be described as indiepop. Nevertheless, all songs belonging in this context are characterised as being influenced by electronic production techniques, which have developed in recent times. Thus, their sound characteristics refer to roots of electronic music such as Kraftwerk or other Krautrock formations. Others come from the context of the Minimal Techno or Electronica scene. As they contain catchy melodies they do not only belong to underground clubs, but are also made for being played in your living room. Thats why we made them now available for you on CD and that"s why this compilation has the big word 'Pop' in it's title." Artists include: Jürgen Paape, Mense Reents, Stuertz, Kratzke, Hardman, Ocker, Ada, Mica, Jan Gazarra, C.M. Smith, Moore:Music, Erdmöbel, Riviera, Elias, Phil Stumpf, Hetterich, Meta.83, and Andi Teichmann.
