AGF & Gudrun Gut Present Greie Gut Fraktion's "Stadt Mixe"

AGF and Gudrun Gut, together known as Greie Gut Fraktion, will soon see the release of Baustelle, and to build anticipation for the record, the first single, "Stadt Mixe," is now available and features remixes from Alva Noto and Wolfgang Voigt. What makes the release even more interesting, though, is that "Wir bauen eine neue Stadt" was originally a track by Holger Hiller and Thomas Fehlmann's '80s project, Palais Schaumburg, so the first single actually consists of four producers remixing a cover version. If this eclectic aesthetic is any indication of what the rest of Baustelle will sound like, then fans of experimental electronics should be getting very excited for the June 18 record release date on Monika Enterprise. Check out the tracklisting for the single, which comes out May 21, after the jump! Read more »

Watch Ellen Allien's New Video for "Our Utopie"

Berlin techno and fashion maven Ellen Allien has released a new video in anticipation of her upcoming album, Dust, which comes out May 25 on BPitch Control. Similar in feel to mid-'90s Dutch rave sequences, the video for "Our Utopie" features disembodied lips, hands, and a t-shirt-bedecked Allien making strange hand gestures in front of trippy images of space, oceans, and other natural phenomena. Though it is short, the video should whet fans' appetites for the new album, as well as a whirlwind summer tour. Check out those dates after the jump! Read more »
