"Departure. Here is what it takes. Headphones. A travelcard for your local transport authority. And a Walkman, preferably a digital one. Now, go to the railway station and look for suburban railway services. Choose an old, rusty train. They normally depart from the one and only platform that hasn´t been redecorated yet. Take a seat by the window. As the train slowly leaves the station, press start. Watch the sun go down. The next station is Staedtizism. 'Nonsense', you mumble to yourself, as the train leaves behind the shiny inner city. 'Staedtizism...what the hell does that mean?' You´ll soon begin to understand. As a matter of fact, you suddenly realize that what you hear fits what you see. As the train rumbles towards suburbia, you see powerplants, scrapyards, old, run down factories and spooky housing projects. Meanwhile, you listen to stories on your walkman which mysteriously circle around the same things. With Staedtizism, Scape, the Berlin-based outlet for dub-influenced electronic music presents a soundtrack for an urban state of mind. Staedtizism is a result of research. A piece of sonic evidence of what happens when musicians try to re-think and to re-design all they ever knew about reverb, delay, deepness, distance, width, melody, melancholy and successfully set to music their lives in cities."
