Bunker Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
Everyone has a mental image of what a central European squat party is like. Speed, crusties and really hard acid techno, right? Yeah, the music that’s playing in your head now was probably made by Unit Moebius. The producer crew's legendary Bunker releases emerged from The Hague’s 90s squat scene and still pack a punch more than two decades later. The B-sides are particularly relentless.

Back in the 90s, Bunker Records emerged from The Hague’s squat-party scene with a run of hard-as-nails acid techno drops by Unit Moebius. Fast-forward to the present day and the rebooted label are repressing a few of the producer squad's early EPs. Taking strong influence from Underground Resistance, many of the current European clubsphere owe a debt to UM.
A 12” so good they just had to re-press it: Bunker 004 by Unit Moebius, first circulated way back in 1993, in the early years of the legendary Bunker Records. The four tracks contained on this fine wax slab are just absolutely vintage acid techno from a Dutch master. Beat the discog-ers and get this Bunker re-press 12”.
Often seen as Europe’s response to Underground Resistance, Unit Moebious travel the breadth of the techno/electronica genres from acid to fast paced, industrialised, and wonky techno. This reissue of their third EP on Bunker from 1993 shows them in full Detroit mode, with crisp synth pads and unflinching grooves.
By all accounts the Bunker Records base in 1993 was as equally deranged as it was a party. Unit Moebius were right in the thick of it, creating paranoia filled no-frills techno on broken cassette recorders, marking them as europe’s answer to Underground Resistance. They have gone back to the bunker and brought some of the limited pressings back as represses. Buy a ticket, take the ride.
The second of Bunker Records’ represses from their heyday and the explosion of the acid scene in Holland. Unit Moebius were in the epicentre of the party, and created dark and raw techno recorded on whatever they had, broken tape machines, the lot. Nothing pretty or polished here. Dirty and unflinching.
Mmmmm, some nice Roman-themed house action… Gladio is a pseudonym of Legowelt, an outlet for sexy-slinky electro-house fun. Some especially kinky vocal samples “ooh” and “yeah” their way through some of these tracks: you know the vibe. Slave Of Rome was first released back in 2003: now the very same Netherlands-based Bunker Records label has re-pressed it.
The Bunker label continue their Legowelt repress series with this vinyl 12” from his Salamandos alias. The excellent titles of Follow The Messiah (including Jack For Jesus) are a hint at the playful and fun-loving deep house variations within. The original pressing was only 200, so make sure you don’t miss this one as well.
Due to popular demand the Bunker label repress Legowelt’s 2000 vinyl 12” Pimpshifter. As is to be expected the sound is ever raw and strange; drum machines mingle with bongos and surreal samples are mashed up with stunning synthesizer tones borrowed from Legowelt’s legendary collection.
Some choice older tracks from Legowelt, first released back in 2005. Beyond The Congo is Legowelt in full-blown electro mode, each track possessing the full complement of classic drum machines, pulsing basslines and wavering synth melodies. 12” re-pressed by the original label, the Netherlands-based Bunker Records.
Legowelt is a producer with an uncanny knack for pulling slick and exciting sounds out of a range of rare and underused old synths. His ear for melody is hard to ignore too, and the four Detroit-style tracks on Tower Of Gipsies show this off in great style. Repress of the original 2003 12”, out on the Bunker label.
'Kuiken II' is the second part of Bunker's re-issue celebration of Unit Moebius and their good-times evil music. With these two records they made some of the eeriest, darkest acid techno around, with all the tension of a horror movie that never get around to the climax. It's been fifteen odd years since 'Kuiken I' was available on vinyl, but now Bunker makes the minimalist venture available again.
This old classic offers some dark acid techno from Unit Moebius, who created all sounds equal and made them all lurk in the shadows, hiding behind tinkering beats. It's been fifteen odd years since 'Kuiken I' was available on vinyl, but now Bunker makes this pulverising minimalist venture available again.
