Central Europe Performance - Breakfast in the Ruins

Artist: Central Europe Performance
P: 1989
Breakfast in the Ruins is classical of Eighties synths albums, a stunning delight for senses, and a great consolation for anyone that thought Teutonic synth was a dying art.
Breakfast in the Ruins is the first and to date only record-release by Central Europe Performance, a spin-off-project by Udo Hanten & Albin Meskes concentrating on live appearances and supported by other musicians from different corners of the music world.
Computer music often enough recorded by hightech fussy fanatics working like recluses in ivory towers filled with keyboards, synthesizers and other electronic instruments, to the exclusion of the public. The "CENTERAL EUROPE PERFORMANCE" (CEP) project takes the reverse path. The debut album "Breakfast In The Ruins" presents live-rehearsed matriculation products of co-operation among musicians who contributed to this work their varied experience with electronic sound material after the correctness of their ideas had been confirmed by thousands of audiences.
The group was produced and directed by Udo Hanten followed by Harald Großkopf, Marco Cancian, Albin Meskes and Frank Mevissen. Guestmusicians are Mike Pelzer, Markus Maria Jansen and Señor Canuto.

Various Artists - Electronic Music for Life

Artist: Maxxess, Moonbooter, Spyra, Robert Schroeder,
You, Eroc, B.Kistenmacher, Wellenfeld u.v.a.

P: 2011
All new titles compsed for this compilation.
On March 11th, 2011, Japan had to experience the most powerful earthquake of its history. Pictures of the following Tsunami were seen around the world. This natural catastrophe caused extensive and long lasting consequences. In one word: Fukushima.
Ten thousands of people died, hundred thousands are homeless. Families, children and old people are fighting for their livelihood. The world is shocked and takes share in the fate of the concerned. The quiet and proud japanese people welcome this solace. But even a country like Japan cannot manage the enormous challenges alone. Therefore, the consoling words have to be followed by action!
Based on this thought, Mellowjet-Records started the project "Electronic Music FOR LIFE" shortly after the catastrophe. The idea was to release a compilation and to donate the complete revenue to a charitable organisation. The response and readiness of the addressed artists to support this project was overwhelming. So, INTERDISC agreed to sponsor the first release of a double-cd-production. Even more artists joint the project.
The Eroc Mastering Ranch offered a free audio mastering. Company Rebeat offered the free digital marketing and added a special sponsoring package. A survey among the participating artists confirmed, that the revenue should be donated to the Deutsches Rotes Kreuz (DRK). Due to this remarkable development the DRK was convinced to support this project by allocating their logo. Within a few weeks only, Mellowjet-Records was able to compile and produce an excellent, 150 minutes long double-cd which involves all faces
of contemporary electronic music. Most of the 27 songs from 27 different bands and musicians have been composed exclusively for this project.
Only to mention some: Robert Schroeder, Eroc, Bernd Kistenmacher, Rolf Maier Bode, Harald Grosskopf, Mythos, Matthias Beine, Wellenfeld, Dithmar, moonbooter, Uwe Reckzeh, Spyra and many, many more. Besides dreamy sequences of Berlin School, powerful chorals, piano-ballades, orchestral works and danceable electronic music this double-cd offers as well experimental pieces, synthiepop, spacerock, chillout and ambient
music. Thus, this album should be part of every collection!
All artists as well as the label waive their share of profits. The whole revenue from sales of the double-cd and downloads will be donated to a project of the Deutsches Rotes Kreuz and will support the people in Japan directly.
Please support the victims in Japan by buying this album. Even if the world tends to forget quickly: the misery will remain in the everyday life of the people in Japan for a very long time.
Thank you very much!

You - Electric Day

Artist: You
P: 1979 / 2011

Reissue inluding four bonus tracks (CD only)

As synthesizers grew more popular from the mid-seventies onwards, an increasing number of groups swapped the classic instruments of a rock band for sequencers and
synthesizers. Pioneers (and paragons) of this electronically created music included of course Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Manuel Göttsching et al, who represent the “Berliner Schule” (in contrast to the Düsseldorfer Schule which developed around Kraftwerk and Co.) A hitherto less celebrated, yet outstanding exponent of the
Berliner Schule was the Krefeld combo YOU. Udo Hanten and Albin Meskes teamed up with another iconic figure of electronic music, Harald Grosskopf, to issue two fantastic
albums as the 1980s began. Without disowning their Berlin role models, YOU nevertheless came up with their own hypnotic mix of sequencer patterns, synthesizer melodies,
pulsating drums and sporadic acoustic guitar phrases. Now and again they even ventured into experimental territory. Tracing YOU’s path from the idea of founding a band to the
release of their first LP, one encounters a host of illustrious characters from the electronic/Krautrock music scene. Peter Baumann, for example, a member of Tangerine Dream for so many years, who was the first to hear the material played to him by Hanten and his guitarist Uli Weber at his Paragon Studios in Berlin. They also met Harald Grosskopf here, a member of Rolf-Ulrich Kaiser’s “Kosmische Kuriere” and
former drummer with Klaus Schulze. Großkopf was a member of Manual Göttsching’s Ashra band at the time. Which just leaves sound engineer, the legendary Conny
Plank. It was he who suggested that YOU and Grosskopf get together to set up the Spiegeltraum Studio in Krefeld, with Grosskopf supplying the recording gear and Hanten the musical equipment. Grosskopf completed “Synthesist”, his most famous work, before YOU recorded “Electric Day” halfway through 1979. It now appears with four bonus tracks.

You - Laserscape

Artist: You
P: 1986 / 2013

Reissue inluding bonus track (CD only)

The Krefeld duo YOU played their way into the elite of the German electronic music scene with their first two albums "Electric Day" (1979) and "Time Code" (1983). The music on "Laserscape" (1986) was conceived to accompany the laser performances of the same name by Horst H. Baumann. And that's what it sounds like: multilayered drones, up to 13 minutes long, evocative of Blade Runner's menacing atmosphere, sometimes laced with driving, pulsating sequences, typical of the so-called Berlin School (Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze etc). The reissue is available on CD (Digipak)

You - Time Code

Artist: You
P: 1980 / 2011

Reissue inluding two bonus tracks (CD only)
If “Electric Day” was characterized by Harald Großkopf’s pulsating drums and Uli Weber’s solo guitar, “Time Code emerged as an altogether more electronic affair, with both
Großkopf and Weber having left the project. Reduced to a duo, YOU largely remained faithful to their style, but expanded upon it. “Time Code” displays more range and
variation than its predecessor“Electric Day”. Down tempo and faster numbers alternate and sugar sweet melodies are followed by expanses of ominously dark or crystal clear
synthesizers. Hanten and Meskes’ new sound was further refined by the use of drum computers and the omission of guitar. The album perfectly illustrates the transition of electronic music from the 1970s to the 1980s. Sequencer patterns owe much to the legacy of the Berlin School (Berliner Schule), whilst the synthesizer and drum computer sounds heralded the advent of the new decade. The level of interest and excitement was particularly high in Italy, where songs from the album featured heavily on radio. Listeners were clearly impressed by “Live Line”, which has resurfaced in various techno productions over the past twenty years, either as a cover (by Diolac Duvai, for example), or as “Elektro Message” (by Gigi D’Agostino). This reissue comes with two bonus tracks.
