Recompiled I/II

First instalment of a two part vinyl only series from Ostgut Ton sub label A-TON which presents a retrospective compilation of tracks from Berghain resident and Sandwell District member Function. Made up from a selection of unpublished and out of print tracks. Basically, a must for modern techno heads.

Recompiled II/II

Following the recent Recompiled I​/​II, a second retrospective volume of Sandwell District veteran David Sumner on A-TON, the new sublabel of Berghain's Ostgut Ton. Previously unreleased tracks alongside well-loved and deleted classics, going as far back as 1996’s F1. Widely considered some of the finest techno of last quarter century - pristine minimalism all round. Double vinyl only.

Function & Vatican Shadow
Games Have Rules

Here's a collaboration between electronic big hitters Function and Vatican Shadow who have combined forces,  simultaneously stripping back each producer’s main production elements - the dancefloor-focused techno structures of Function; the experimental cassette-roots of Vatican Shadow - to create an album of dynamic electronic ambient music, equal parts rhythmic and atmospheric. 

L.B. Dub Corp / Function / Substance
Zehn / Drei

Minimal techno label Ostgut Ton continue to reissue each part of their Zehn compilation, a ten year anniversary celebration which sold out phenomenally quickly. The Zehn/Drei vinyl 12” compiles work from Function and Substance as well as a remix of  L.B. Dub Corp from Len Faki. All three tune are rich and impressive techno, but Function’s distorted arpeggios are the highlight.

Recompiled / Extractions

There's going to be a big party in Function's honour next year with a record compiling around thirty of his greatest, most significant and secret works, but until then, David Sumner is asking you to RSVP. You've got plenty of time, but this 12" is a pretty good way to signal your interest, with four tracks, including the slow-burner "Montage", in which all that equipment melts under the pressure.

Synewave Reissues Part I: 1995-97

Great repress from the techno magician Function aka David Sumner. Synewave Reissues Part I: 1995-97 is being put out by Infrastructure and still sounds as fresh as it did in the mid 90's. The Brooklyn native shunned the populous route and brought the artistic aesthetic of Detroit to New York. Sumner abducts you onto his haunted spaceship and leaves you no options but to get down. This 12" vinyl needs to be snapped up before the aliens get it.
