The compilation, To Andreas Gehm, is made up of eight tracks, including new music by KiNK, Marco Bernardi, Basic Soul Unit, and Umwelt amongst others. It is set to be released first on digital format (available to download from November 25), before getting a vinyl pressing too early next year. All proceeds raised by the release will go towards funding Andreas Gehm’s post-mortem affairs, managed by his best friend, Joe Kurta.
Andreas Gehm (a.k.a. Elec Pt. 1), who passed earlier this year, is widely regarded as a key figure in Europe's acid sound, having released on the likes of Bunker Records, Mathematics, Solar One Music, and Midnight Shift itself.
