New weekly update from MAS™ -

 

OUT TODAY // The second of Funkstörung's archive classic split-label titles with Compost Records from 1997 - 'Sonderdienste' EP.

musikausstrom.bandcamp.com/album/sonderdienste

Four more, rare and early pieces from Funkstörung's formative years (and the next step in creating their iconic design brand aesthetic with The Designers Republic), 'Sonderdienste' offers a fascinating insight into a band evolving ever closer to the sound and output that would soon put them on the map.

Re-mastered for 2022 by Michael Fakesch himself and released digitally for the first official time.

Enjoy... and more very soon.

Danke.

// MAS™

New weekly update from MAS™ (and think this one may please a few of you already, based on a few previous posts in here 😏

OUT TODAY //  An early fan-favourite title... In 1997, Funkstörung joined forces with the awesome US based Chocolate Industries label (Prefuse 73, While, East Flatbrush Project) for the release of 'Post.Art' - A four-track EP of new work showing further examples of the dense, rich directions Michael & Chris were heading in.

Originally released on highly scarce white 12" vinyl, a not-quite-as-scarce standard black 12" vinyl, and later a CD (with a secret fifth bonus track), this beloved classic has been long out of print, and also never an official digital release until now. 

Remastered by Michael Fakesch himself, 'Post.Art' is out now digitally (in its five-track entirety) as part of our second wave of archive split-label reissues.

Enjoy, and see you next Friday 😉

So, this clarifies what the speed was supposed to be (45 rpm) for this record. It's strange to me, as I only really liked it at 33 rpm. The music seems too rushed at 45. I have the same issue with Jeswa - Skone, only there the intended speed seems too slow.

Belated post from last Friday's MAS™ update...

This week's update... 

OUT TODAY // Following last week's first volume, today we release part-two of Jay-Jay Johanson's collaborative tracks with Funkstörung, which originally formed the bulk of JJJ's 2002 album, 'Antenna'... Funkstõrung's first experience producing a collection of tracks specifically for a solo vocalist's own album.

These last four tracks are compiled here to form the 'Antennae #2' EP - all once again remastered by Michael Fakesch himself, and concluding our little two-part retrospective of one of Funkstörung's more unique sidesteps.

Jay-Jay Johanson mit Funkstörung - 'Antennae #2' is out now:

Enjoy, and onwards to more special treats next week.

(... A little inside T, too. Even deeper archive dives landing imminently. Plus, more actual-new titles cooking nicely and coming very soon indeed. 😎 )

This week's update...

OUT TODAY // In 2002, Funkstörung's other 50%, Chris De Luca, released his debut solo album as a collaborative project with the mighty DJ Peabird, entitled 'Deadly Wiz Da Disko' - An all-killer collection of mutual exchanges & experiments, that truly showcased the underground hip-hop elements & influences in Funkstörung's iconic "glitch-hop" sound.

With Peabirds expert scratches and contributions from Beans (Antipop Consortium), 'Deadly Wiz Da Disko' became a slow-burn, cult-classic that celebrates it's 20th anniversary in 2022, which we are proud to bring back home to Musik Aus Strom™ for a digital re-issue.

Chris De Luca and Peabird - 'Deadly Wiz Da Disko' - OUT NOW:

Enjoy. More soon!

Going suuuuuuuper old-school this week! 😉

OUT TODAY // This week we are going right back to 1995, and all the way back our roots.

Before there was Funkstörung, Michael Fakesch & Chris De Luca spent a brief period in their early analogue days under the name "Musik Aus Strom" (a name which would be put to more substantial use later on).

Their earliest experiments were contributed to the iconic Dutch label, Bunker Records, whose newly founded sub-label, Acid Planet, launched with a steady series of Analogue Acid albums & EPs under the "Acid Planet #.." numerical title, since 1994. Chris & Michael's first of six contributions to the series was the full-length 'Acid Planet 11' album, originally released in 1995 on a limited run 12" vinyl (with a rare CDr re-issue briefly appearing in 2001).

Despite the brittle edges and naive first steps, Chris & Michael's 'Acid Planet 11' is still an infectiously enthusiastic and unapologetically singular statement of intent for what would unfold over the immediate years that followed... now given a new breath of fresh air for 2022's digital era, thanks to a thorough remastering by Michael Fakesch himself.

Musik Aus Strom (aka: Funkstörung) - 'Acid Planet 11' - OUT NOW:
musikausstrom.bandcamp.com/album/acid-planet-11

More of the series (and other treats in store) very soon.

Enjoy.

BRAND NEW MUSIC from MAS™ today! 😱

OUT TODAY // NEW FOR 2022:

Anothr - '1' (EP)

- musikausstrom.bandcamp.com/album/1-2

German producer, singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, sound designer & graduate in Music Science, Anothr has been the driving force behind several music projects across Germany for several years, including production & instrumental work for the critically acclaimed band, her tree, and contributions to fellow Rosenheim neighbours Funkstörung’s self-titled, 2015 album on Moderat‘s Monkeytown Records.

Just as understated as his artist name, Anothr‘s debut EP is simply called '1' (with further sequentially titled releases to follow). While the soulful blend of intricate synths, thoughtful vocals and distinctive Electronics merge to form a unique palette that speaks for itself, the four tracks within '1' boast four unique personalities...

The surprising twists and turns of 'Release It' processes Anothr’s vocals around a convoy of swells and falls to unique effect that is both epic but intimate. 'Run' dials the pace and scope down to a tender, quiet is a very introverted moment of reflection, which was recorded on an iPhone while Anothr‘s children were playing in the local playground background and provides a sensitive contrast to 'Release It'.

Co-written & produced by good friend and MAS™ founder, Michael Fakesch, the distinctively more analogue and dirtier sound of 'It’s Easy' tweaks Funkstörung signature sound into something uniquely steady and positive. Bringing the EP to a close, the wobbly synth-arpeggio of 'Shoulder', calmly lulls you into a false sense of security before hitting the listener hard with some bombastic pop chords and vocodered vocals.

'1' bring a distinctively refreshing fusion of new sounds and thinking to the Musik Aus Strom™ catalogue, and promises future excitement from Anothr soon.

Enjoy.

//MAS™
