Penalty 1998-2000 Series
"The Penalty series was started in 1999 as a division of Sativae Recordings. The idea was to allow the labels producers, along with some special guests, to experiment with electro based structures without feeling the need to provide music that must 'work the floor'... The result was 5 EP's of tracks ranging from Kraftwerk inspirations through to electro-rave fusions along with a fast edit take on Bambata's 'Planet Rock'. This CD provides radio edit versions of 17 out of the original 20 tracks. A closer look shows some of the highlights of the series including Detroit's Interdimensional Transmissions boss Ectomorph with the hypnotic beats of 'Fuck Dotcom', the lush strings of Berkovi's 'Razor Blade / Bucket of Water', some electro pop with 'Bass Mission' from DMX Krew, the 2 sides of the Leeds electro camp Scarletron & Silicon Scally (a.k.a. Carl Finlow / Random Factor) with 'Verona' & 'My Invisible Light' respectively and finally the mono bass of 'Raging Bull' by Tobias Schmidt. This is the final Penalty release, but there is the new Gassoline label set up to provide a platform for Sativae related artists to bring out new sonic electro cuts..."
