CLOUDS (LP + MP3)
12" Vinyl lp D 11.10.12
nice price deal !!! borngräber & strüvers latest album represents a unique selection of chamber music compositions created in the period of 2000 through 2012. this denotes a new facet in the musical cosmos of the berliner duo, combining influences in the range of minimal music, classic and baroque, as well as the art of improvisation and pop culture. clouds can be considered as an album for fans of richard skelton, the caretaker and christian naujoks, but its distinctive work manages to reach a far wider audience. the album begins with the piece wellen (waves) for soprano and strings. the music is arranged and composed in a sort of wavy-shape, as the title suggests. it is a piece in the purest form of minimalism: without an end, without a beginning. the following track mobile pays homage to richard strauss don quixote, as musical parts and constantly changing atmospheres reconcile to create a sense of movement and mobility. last but not least, secret bells represents an instant composition as charles mingus would say, combining piano works and field recordings. clouds 1-3 were written for a virtual chamber orchestra and join together to give the album its leading name. these >clouds< differentiate themselves trough stylistic influences, ranging from classical to the latest in music.

TILL THE OLD WORLDS BLOWN UP AND A NEW ONE IS CREATED (LP + DOWNLOAD COUPON)
12" Vinyl lp (incl download coupon) D 04.06.12
the rebirth of cool m=minimal is pleased to release a masterpiece of the early 21st century on vinyl. till the old worlds blown up and a new one is created is an outstanding work of reductionism and minimalism. martin brandlmyar ( radian / trapist / kapitalband 1 ), werner dafeldecker ( polwechsel, david sylvian, autistic daughters) and christian fennesz ( touch / mego / thrill jockey ) on this record created a new kind of cool jazz coupled with a big portion of new york school ( cage, feldman, brown und wolff). its hard to describe the music with words. this work reveals his secrets only after listening to it a couple of times. it grows with each time you listen to it. in this work, silence and noise are never used as an end in itself. as equal parameters they stand in the composition that also has space for some tonal >flower<. our recommended listening time is – round about midnight.

ROMANTIC COMEDY (LP)
12" Vinyl lp D 21.11.11
andreas reihse is well known since 1994 in his role as musician with kreidler. sometimes he releases club music, for example using his alias april or with detlef weinrich (kreidler, tolouse lowtrax) as binford on labels like italic, onitor or smoothrooms. he also composed soundtracks for artist movies and installations (rosemarie trockel, maximilian zentz zlomowitz, thea djordjadze, andreas gursky, frances scholz/mark von schlegell, among others). romantic comedy is music for dark clubs, for places without much light and oxygen – its driving, percussive dance music. a comedy in six acts: from l.a. to düsseldorf and back. music and lyrics? - pop goes my heart! - of course its a romantic comedy, a bittersweet romance full of memories and a bit of sorrow. >der lange weg nach düsseldorf< the title reminds of mittagspauses der lange weg nach derendorf, derendorf, the district of düsseldorf where andreas reihse and stefan betke / pole in the late 80ies shared a rehearsal room. langeweg also was the adress of the studio of klaus dinger in zeeland. the titles of the other pieces refer to dubious characters that show that the trip on the west coast makes stops in manchester, milano, brussels and london without forgetting charlottenburg and williamsburg. places that hold up against oblivion and reinvent themselves. your club needs you. the cover was designed by artist thea djordjadze

CON-STRUCT (LP)
12" Vinyl lp D 01.08.11
after two re-releases of conrad schnitzler classics, (zug & ballet statique) now m=minimal releases a completely new work from the pioneer of electronic music. conrad schnitzler is a sound explorer. for many years, he has been on expeditions, journeys through his collection of electronic synthesizers almost every day. sounds he liked has been conserved on tape and stored in his sound library. the result is a huge library of audio files, he calls them >solen<. >borngräber & struever< have got the chance to examine that library and started to con-struct new pieces out of the hidden gems. these are not remixes but new compositions. none of the sound combinations were thought or heard before. the 8 tracks form an album independent of any trend and therefore it becomes a real acoustic environment for everyone. the album was produced at studio.wannsee. to give the album more authenticity, the complete audio processing was done using analog equipment. they not only used many classics among the finest synthesizers and outboard equipment, but also custom built tube gear. the icing on the cake are the tubes used from the 60s, which bought christian borngräber on a trip through the atacama desert in a small radio repair business in the city of calama. thanks to the desert climate even the packaging of the tubes looked as new

KREUZBERG (LP)
12" Vinyl lp D 06.06.11
kreuzberg is the project of drummer and composer andreas peters and dj jens strüver (borngräber & strüver, j.r. plankton). in their childhood they played in the same football club somewhere in west germany and met again 20 years later in kreuzberg / berlin. they realized that in their lives music always has been playing an important role and as their interests in musical styles where highly compatible they created the project kreuzberg. the tracks are based on drumset, vibraphone (bowed), other acoustic material comes from turntables, the bass is the only synthetic element of the record. the music is influenced by dub, club music, minimal music and conny-plank-krautrock

URLAUB
12" Vinyl lp D 16.05.11
after the very well-received work >in g< borngräber & strüver have not been resting on their laurels but made >reise< (journey). they extended the concept of >21th century electro motoric kraut< on the new album >urlaub< and added their preference for disco music. like a friend of the label said: >reise – sounds like a composition for the 20th birthday of carl craigs planet e<. borngräber & strüver have consistently worked on developing their minimalist compositions without taking into consideration conventions. the nearly 17-minute >reise< that starts extremely held back, grows into a groovy trip you can hardly escape. >berlin tribal music< has a radically minimalist approach and a surprising break like a portal to a parallel dimension. the last part of the album >dancing queen< has nothing to do with abba. the piece is a missing link between electronic h-pop and groovy club sounds.

LIKE LIKES LIKE (CD)
cd D 14.05.13
there is a certain type of music that echoes the feeling of a dark promise. it triggers anxiety, and it is precisely this effect that makes it appealing. such music represents a living contradiction, a threatening attraction, a sounding abyss. and it is fascinating like a cronenberg film. denselands music oscillates precisely within this suspense. hanno leichtmann, hannes strobl and david moss had already released an album titled chunk. now they bring us like likes like with the berliner label m=minimal and seek to combine everything that belongs together. rhythmical textures, rudimentary melodies and a clear renunciation of harmonies develop into a lesson on the subject minimalism. it is this sort of rhythmical music that instantly develops into a sense of suction that couldnt be thriftier. the songs produce a deep and chilly effect. and beyond the rhythmical structures appears david moss magical sprechgesang.
