after their first release with wah wahno borders ep our berlin based friends label kool killer is releasing now their second 10inch.
the forthcoming release features two experimental electronic pieces by brian house.
Brian House is a wild mix between a gifted musician and weird scientist. He also studied that kinda thing. He was born in Denver but lives in Providence now (if not in the whole world). His works have been part of festivals like Ars Electronica (Linz) or Transmediale (Berlin). Two new pieces of Brians music will be released pretty soon on Berlin based label Kool Killer Records.
On March 17/ 2017 the 10inch vinyl EP Shim Ring will be released. This EP combines two different kinds of musical approaches. But both deal with the use of repetition and our perception of it.
The first track Ngoshi is the result of shere instrumental setup. It´s musically located in the percussive, ambient genre.
On the B side Reeds field-recordings and production techniques, which have been established by Musique Concrète some years before, are used. It’s heavy and gripping.
A: Ngoshi /// 06:59 min
B: Reeds /// 06:39 min
The Brian House EP Shim Ring will be released on march 17/ 2017 as a limited edition of 300 copies. The record covers are risoprints by Berlin based artist Steffen Ullmann. Some shirts and a small tour are in the making.
happy to announce the next release coming in mid march 2017, just in a couple of days! the dubcore series, after the last one by lfo demon, now continous as a 12inch series. the first drop is fire on wax by celsius. four banging jungle tunes on red vinyl running on 45 rpm. these tunes been my favorite since the mid ninties available in the digital underground of aminet. so freaked about to see these early internet releases from 1995 made with protracker for amiga 500 now on vinyl. brings back the oldschool jungle vibe.
preorder is on. release date 17.3.2017.
preorders dispatch in the week of the release! get your copy now!
recordings for this new album went on for the last three years on rare occasions with lots of thinking, traveling, soldering and doubting in fare nebular space systems inbetween. but everything should come to an end, all fuel on the spaceship is burnt, all comets have been hitchhiked, and eating krill and kelp day in and day out is just not really satisfiying; they came back from strolling the kosmos, and so here we go: but you have to wait till it’s finally ready in its materialized form – out in fall 2016 on a double 12inch sized vinyl record!

release date: 13.06.2014 place to be: praxis meets datacid party, berlin
the mind is collapsing on you, everything falls apart but actually its not the walls which restrict you. at least in most cases not the proverbial. its a structure that makes up a controll for each ones behave. the normative may be exceeded only in behave, the hegemony be attacked only in the situation. the step to the abyss, which allows the prospect, is connected with the slide. each highlight is the beginning of decay.
the mayfly begins her live as a nymph.
what distinguishes the moment of knowledge about some of the ignorance of the moment before. is the last question for each one: why me?
after Inner City Fear, What do you want, Battybwoy Soundboy Massive und Rabbit in Me, this is istari lasterfahrers 5th MiniLP.

karl marx stadt: III 1999 – 2009 - 2x12inch
after two releases on berlins lux nigra c. gierden aka karl marx stadt is delivering a full album with 19 tracks, mostly generated with impulse tracker in 9 home studios.
The common perception of dance music seems to be leading people to the conclusion that certain forms of open interpretation are unwanted; even forbidden on the dance floor, which in fact, they are not. Actually they are to be encouraged. This album seeks to encourage, to give it a fresh start, open your mind and hear new things in new ways.
Karl Marx Stadt writing to you from the center of the universe. Being probably bored like crazy, he asks you to join him for a ride on the spaceship. It’s actually more like a station, but it’s been moving across time and space and to the edge of the solar system a lot, so be surprised if there’s a sudden 90 degree turn or full stop before jumping into hyperdrive.
After slowly phasing out the Society Suckers project some years ago, Karl Marx Stadt Disappeared further and further from the scene. But now he’s back! With a beautiful masterpiece of intricate detail to follow the hyper Karl Marx Stadt 1997- 2004 on Lux Nigra.
Twisting hundreds of sampled into the mix, A certain unheard sonic palette emerges setting the tone for a unique record, using every technique in his vast Arsenal of Sonic weapons, showing the youngsters some new tricks and the dj’s some twists and turns.
If you like to sit down at home listening to music and talking about how beautiful music can be, this is your soundtrack. A selection of boundary-breaking electronic music has been compiled from the vault to expose the yet unheard side of Karl Marx Stadt. We hope you find it just as enjoyable and amazing as we do.
