 Groupshow - Greatest Hits (vinyl P)
Faitiche presents Groupshow's Greatest Hits: The ten tracks on this first vinyl album by Groupshow (Hanno Leichtmann, Andrew Pekler, Jan Jelinek), recorded between 2005 and 2018, document concert recordings and studio improvisations by the trio.
Jonathan Scherk - Toon! (vinyl LP)
Jonathan Scherk's first solo LP immerses us in a highly distinctive world of plunderphonics-sampledelica-variations acousmatiques that's impossible to classify while feeling familiar nonetheless. Following a strict two-minute format, thirteen complex sound constructions offer a range of experiences—as if the neurosciences had developed an acoustic formula capable of triggering illusions of memory.
Roméo Poirier - Living Room (vinyl LP)
The French musician and producer transforms the layering of different times into a free-flowing pulse that sounds both nostalgic and mysteriously ahistorical.
 Farben - Textstar+ (2 vinyl LP)
On textstar+ Jan Jelinek brings together the material from the CMYK series, four seminal EPs he released between 1999 and 2002 under the pseudonym Farben, on a vinyl double LP for the first time. The selection of tracks has been remastered from the original tapes, joined by two additional pieces that appeared on compilations during the same period.
 Beispiel - Muster (vinyl LP)
The first album by Frank Bretschneider and Jan Jelinek's joint project, produced from improvised sessions on modular systems between 2016 and 2020.
Ursula Bogner - Sonne = Blackbox (vinyl LP)
The reissue of the compositions for tape and voice of Ursula Bogner (1946-1994), scientist, phamarcian, artist, "outsider" experimental musician fascinated by Wilhelm Reich's work, whose archives were mysteriously discovered Jan Jelinek, compiled by Andrew Pekler.
Andrew Pekler - Tristes Tropiques (vinyl LP)
An album of “synthetic exotica & pseudo-ethnographic music”.
Frank Bretschneider - abtasten_halten (vinyl LP)
Frank Bretschneider's most radical work: a self-generating composition for synthesizer modules whose sole sound source is the movement of two VU meter needles. The resulting percussive sounds coalesce into rhythmic combinations—all random, without repetition. A meditation on infinite rhythmic variation.
Jan Jelinek - The Raw and the Cooked (vinyl LP)
currently out of stock
An album version of the radio piece Vom Rohen und Gekochten (The Raw and The Cooked) originally composed and produced by Jan Jelinek for the state broadcaster SWR2, bringing together five sound collages that deal with the consistency of material and its mutability.

Remastered edition of Sydney trio Triosk and Jan Jelinek's loop-based jazz project.
Jan Jelinek - Tierbeobachtungen (vinyl LP)

Andrew Pekler - Sounds From Phantom Islands (vinyl LP)
currently out of stock
The soundtrack of an interactive project around phantom islands—islands that appeared on historical maps but never actually existed. A collection of fictitious soundscapes, between field recording and exotica music.
 Gesellschaft Zur Emanzipation Des Samples - Anthology of American Pop Music (vinyl LP)
sold out
Six great pop standards remembered: five pop songs are dissected by the duo of Helmut Schmidt and Jan Jelinek's sampler, stretched, compressed, and re-collaged. In this way, their identity is lost. What remains is a vague concreteness: flashes of déjà vu and remote echoes that evoke the original.
