berlin resident and general man-about-town, asa 808 has run parties supporting underground house and techno all over the city for years whilst simultaneously learning his craft as a producer and dj. ignorance, attachment and bad karma all beautifully capture the patience, melodic intricacy and raw functionality which characterises the finest dance music coming from this great city.

elektroliza is a series of club events formed by a group of dedicated electronic music enthusiasts in 2006. it is hosted by ljubljana s channel zero, a legendary club that is part of the autonomous social centre metelkova which used to be the slovenian headquarters of the yugoslav national army.
filling a void in slovenia s electronic dance scene, the night was a hit from the start and quickly grew into a diverse and successful series focusing on new and exciting electro, acid and dark techno.
elektroliza hosted many memorable dj and live acts by performers/producers/pioneers coming out of international music incubators in gothenburg, the hague, berlin and as far as detroit. even more importantly, it brought together producers and crews from the former yugoslav republics of slovenia, croatia, serbia and macedonia. inside the former yugoslavian military barracks djs and producers from skopje to ljubljana began bonding again through music, forming new friendships, starting new collaborations and dancing the night away... in -electro city ljubljana-.
this first double vinyl compilation of the balkan elektroliza family is a collection of our shared memories and visions of the future to come.

dj support: 2000 and one, karotte, tobi neumann, onur Özer, matthias tanzmann, ali schwarz from tiefscwarz... the four tracks on >Études Électroniques< find luciano invigorated and inspired, putting his talents into the service of dancefloors at their most delirious. with its delicate skip and its slow sunrise flare, >montana< opens the record on a blissful note, calm and suffused with light. a hollow bass tone puffs away like a glassblower as brittle rhythmic patterns spin round and round. swelling and drifting, weightless and iridescent, it feels like chasing dawn in a hot-air balloon. >fochedrem< eases off the throttle and cracks an ear-to-ear grin. a stubby one-note bass line beats out a kind of cartoon funk as the answering riff splinters and shapeshifts between cowbell, organ and piano. its as slippery as the deck of a storm-tossed boat. >masalla< features liquid congas and feathered metallic details that stand on end like magnetic shavings. laid-back and polyrhythmic, its a future latin maysterpiece
when the smallville record store was founded in 2005, people were surprised and regarded it as an experiment. everybody discussed the downfall of vinyl sales and the upcoming market of downloads these days. just a bunch of people regarded record shops, vinyl labels and wonderful warm sounding clubs as the places of true magic. smallvilles finest stefan marx, who is responsible for all artwork-related things and therefore the visual impact that smallville always had, got a call once at night from another one of those dreamers and activists, ata macias. he came up with the fabulous idea to create a standard 12inch cover saying: vinyl kills mp3.
