A-TON Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
German techno enigma Pom Pom has followed up last year’s mysterious release, Untitled, with the equally, or perhaps even more mysterious Untitled II. Just like Untitled, Untitled II comes in a black sleeve and is distinctly lacking in track names, which takes this inscrutable approach one step further than Spinal Tap and Metallica did, but this is not for their fans anyway. LP on A-Ton.
Luke Slater’s post-rave project The Seventh Plain changes gear for the third installment of his compilation series. Chronicles III. Here the music is more free form and built on fractured rhythms. The music here is taken from Slater’s releases on General Production Recordings label. Double LP and CD on A-Ton.
- Vinyl Double LP (A-TONLP07)
Chronicles II by The Seventh Plain compiles previously released tracks from the albums The 4 Cornered Room and My Yellow Wise Rug plus a bunch of previously unreleased tracks that any fan of Luke Slater’s work would not want to be without. The project set out to stretch the techno genre as far into outer space as possible. Double LP and CD on A-Ton.
- Vinyl Double LP (A-TONLP06)
Techno legend Luke Slater is compiling his The Seventh Plain project over three releases. Chronicles I was released in 2016, now with the release of Chronicles II and III, we have this box set containing all three. The spacey, post-rave explorations were far reaching and emotionally affecting. 6LP box set with essay by Joe Muggs and stickers on A-Ton.

Multi-instrumentalists Oren Ambrachi, Konrad Sprenger, and Phillip Sollman are joining forces to create a hypnotic drone/techno classic. Released on Ostgut's ambient and experimental A-TON label. Imagine Steve Reich, Keith Fullerton Whitman, and Gas being blasted through the Berghain’s speakers at the same time. Truly a 12” to lose yourself in.
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 Made up from a selection of unpublished and out of print tracks.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.
'Rauch' conceals a smart and intriguing conceptual core: this is music inspired by the photographer Friederike von Rauch. Modular synthesis unfurls steady drones, whilst amniotic rhythmic bumps and soft noise licks add texture. The atmosphere is lifted with airy pads, completing the sonic counterpart to Rauch's stark artistic eye.
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.
This is a collection of analogue synth burblings made by Luke Slater under his the 7th Plain alter ego back in the '90s. These pieces expand ambient music away from a beat less platform to create emotional escapist electronic music. The album has been released on A -Ton, a sister label to Ostgut Ton, focussing on ambient, archive and alternative music.
