More Info

"Killer album of ferric, monotone, fizzing electronics, slowed down bunker Techno and heavily atmospheric field recordings unearthed and compiled by Golden Pdel's impeccable selector Nina (veteran of mixes for the likes of Blackest Ever Black's Krokodilo Tapes and Berceuse Heroique) and Tobias Duffner's VIS label. Highly Recommended if you're into Alessandro Cortini or fellow Pudel compatriot Helena Hauff.

Scheich in China make exactly the kind of stuff youd hope to hear during one of Ninas far-reaching but focussed DJ sets and comes from another one of the club's elusive and extended possee, someone who alongside their nocturnal activities apparently spends their time beekeeping.

Their self-titled LP bluntly stakes out malefic intent to hypnotise thru their unflinching style and greyscale, atonal palette thats deeply entrenched in a bunker mindset.

On the A-side they lash us into a trio of ever-decreasing drone techno circles primed for the grungiest DJs and clubs that crave a bit of murk on the floor, but the records biggest attraction in undoubtedly the B-sides 18 minute tract of treated and re-wired field recordings, all processed with a cold, hollow, metallic finish that make us feel like some invisible entity haunting the Hamburg docks and Reeperbahn at 6am.

If you fell in love with Alessandro Cortini's impeccable run of releases over the last few years, this one's a must." [Boomkat]
