Various Artists Tiefschwarz Present Black Musik
- Words: Janet Tzou
- Label: Souvenir
Black Musik celebrates the 10-year mark for German über-DJ/producers Ali and Basti Schwarz, and the first anniversary of their Souvenir label. Paying homage to the corresponding decade-long span of club music, the mix unearths goodies like Tuff Little Unit's synthed-out "Join Your Future" and Ewan Pearson's snare-tight remix of "Stars EP" by the Björk-like Courtney Tidwell. Too-short segues aside, Black Musik showcases some 12" gems: snarling bass flows from Broke's "Over That" into Donnacha Costello's cheerfully foul-mouthed "6.6." A bonus remix CD assembles goodies like the Turntablerocker's remix of Tiefschwarz's "No More Trouble." May the Schwarz be with you.
