Music Dub Techno
Notes I really like this release, but will hand over to the more eloquent, and only slightly hyperbolic, words of deafstar themselves:

Our releases are so elaborate, that every record company on earth would refuse to produce such an expensive editions. But we´re not driven by your economy, we live in our own orbit with our own very different rules. So we simply want to produce the best records with the smartest artwork. And we just wanted to make you a little present. However, shops and distribution on earth refused to spread our releases for free, so we must apologize, that you have to pay for the records. You should not hesitate to buy your own personal record because stocks are very limited – we only produce 500 pieces for the world.

And this about this the image on the debut featured here:

The first record in the “dizzy:eko:series” features the central building of the Commerzbank in Frankfurt am Main in Germany. It was designed by Norman Foster and has gained many merits. Usually it is shown surrounded by its colleague skyscrapers outnumbering them in height, being the splendid number one in the center (actually Commerzbank is number two in germany after swallowing Dresdner Bank in 2009, only Deutsche Bank is bigger). On its top there is a spectacular yellowish light installation taking place every night.

However, the cover is drawing a different image here. It doesn´t look like a friendly example from the corporate culture department. The building is twisted, it is wrapped in fog and a dark grey, ofter referred to as battleship-grey. It looks like a fortress, with its massive towers and triangular footprint. It seems to be very massive and tank-like and also shows a similarity to the spectacular concrete bunkers of the third reich. The project name “Bunker Hill” is being well reflected in the image.

  2. about the clip : i had no idea that vinyls were made out of this molten plastic substance (which is vinyl) before watching “the rockers”, a 70’s movie about kingston reggaemen. It’s impressive to see how it becomes sound.

  3. Hello Jaime, hmmm that’s odd. I was sent this quite a long time ago. I thought it was released for public consumption – I’d suggest you leave a message on their Facebook?

  4. Hello vichug, I’d say it’s like magic, similar to the playing of a record on a deck – much preferable to a CD where it’s all hidden away – or an mp3 where there’s no visible movement at all.

  7. Amazing. Ill take a look at that page right now. Anyways, i’d like to know if the label is still alive. check their page+fb and it’s kind of in “a limbo”. It’ll be awesome to see more records like this one. cheers!

  8. tactilemusic.de via discogs is indeed the best (and probaly only) way to purchase the record.
    problem with the distribution that the stores practically don´t reoder after the product is out of sale. maybe you try phonica if you want: http://www.phonicarecords.com/product/view/66482
    besides they „worldwide“ distribution is dbh-music.com

    @jaime „in a limbo“ puts it nicely, we always are over here, working at the second release, music only needs a good cut …

    and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I came across this in my hunt for something regarding this.
