Basic Channel
Q1.1

A quarter-century on and still no-one has ever managed to match Basic Channel. The duo of Mark Ernestus and Moritz von Oswald rewrote the rulebook back in the ‘90s with their fusion of Detroit club sonics with dub/reggae production trickery. Pretty much every techno act that has emerged from Berlin since owes Basic Channel a debt. 1993 EP Q1.1 is just one of the many pioneering records they laid down back in the day, and now it’s been re-pressed for your delectation.

Basic Channel
Radiance

Classic Basic Channel back out on wax. Radiance comes in three long form parts and is one of their most vital releases and a massive influence on the dub techno scene with its floaty dub-inflected sound heard in everything from Deepchord to Fluxion and Deadbeat. Beautiful atmospheric stuff that needs to be heard on vinyl.

Basic Channel
Phylyps Trak

Not to be confused with ‘Phylyps Trak II’, Basic Channel’s 1993 EP Phylyps Trak is a similarly defining moment in the history of club music. To say that Mark Ernestus and Moritz von Oswald’s sound is influential is to do it a disservice. In the most basic terms, dub techno simply wouldn’t exist without their pioneering work. This reissued three-track still goes so very deep.

Basic Channel
Quadrant Dub

If you’re something with even a passing interest in techno then you’ll probably be aware of the importance of Basic Channel. The brand of dub techno that the duo of Moritz von Oswald and Mark Ernestus pioneered in the 90s has been frequently imitated but rarely bettered. 1994’s sprawling, evocative ‘Quadrant Dub’ EP is one of the finest examples of their oeuvre.

Basic Channel
Octagon / Octaedre

Another re-press for Basic Channel’s seminal ‘Octagon’/‘Octaedre’ 12” here. Originally issued in 1994, the two tunes here are the creme de la creme of the dub techno sound that the duo of Moritz von Oswald and Mark Ernestus forged in the Basic Channel fire. It's now almost a quarter-century on from their first release and both tracks still sound great in the club.

Basic Channel
Phylyps Trak II

Minimal/dub techno pioneers Basic Channel re-press their 1994 classic Phylyps Trak II. Split across two sides of wax, this one is a mighty fusion of hard techno beats, thick bass and Ostgut synth textures. It’s also just as good if you spin it at either 45 or 33 - the slower one is the sort of deep meditation that has influenced countless artists down the years.

Paperclip People / Basic Channel
Basic Reshape

There go Basic Channel, quietly opening up whole new worlds in sound. Here we find the duo of Mark Ernestus and Moritz von Oswald giving a going-over to two tunes that Carl Craig made under the banner of Paperclip People. That’s so much techno royalty in one place! Unsurprisingly the resulting ‘Basic Reshape’ EP contains two dub-techno joints of the absolute highest quality.

Cyrus
Enforcement

Though it appeared on Basic Channel - more known for their laid-back dub cuts, Enforcement is classic minimal techno with a heavy hi-end trance sound and the repetitive thump of the best dark and dingy underground techno. A completely different listening experience but has been labelled as the holy grail of minimal techno music. Comes with Jeff Mills remix.
