Jonathan Scherk - Toon! (vinyl LP)
2022
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)
2022
The French musician and producer transforms the layering of different times into a free-flowing pulse that sounds both nostalgic and mysteriously ahistorical.

Frank Bretschneider - abtasten_halten (vinyl LP)
2020
20.00 17.50 €
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.

2019
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)
2020
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.

sold out
Jan Jelinek's album Tierbeoachtungen in a limited pressing on vinyl for the first time.
