German techno label plans exquisitely packaged, very expensive compilation

German techno label Stroboscopic Artefacts plan next edition of clear-vinyl, tin-packaged compilation.


Words by: Charlie Jones

Stroboscopic Artefacts is a fantastic Berlin label ran by Lucy that releases very deepest, very interesting electronic music. They’re one of the best out there, and, as befits outsider electronics labels based in Berlin who release albums called ‘Banality Of Evil’, their music is often exquisitely presented and alive with conceptual rigour.

Their recent compilation ‘Stellate’ (pictured above) was a perfect example – eight tracks by four on-form artists on two 10“s of clear vinyl, housed in a tin package. It’s probably my favourite comp of the year so far, and now the second is on the way. The tracklist is below, and it’s out on the Stellate 02 will be released on June 14 on vinyl and July 27 digitally. It features people we’re already fans of, like Roll The Dice (recorded live in London below) and Silent Servant, and people we’re eager to to be schooled on, like Dadub and Plaster.

A1 Dadub – Endless
A2 Dadub – Refraction
B1 Silent Servant & Luis Farfan – La Negra Luna
B2 Silent Servant & Luis Farfan – No Te Debia Amar
C1 Roll The Dice – Ritenuto
C2 Roll The Dice – Bad Tempered
D1 Plaster – Udis
D2 Plaster – Seber
