Function, Rolando and more will appear on the double EP in September.
Coming hot off the heels of the announcement for Marcel Dettmann's new LP, this eight-track double EP is meant as a spiritual successor to Fünf, the lengthy compilation Ostgut released back in 2010 to celebrate their fifth anniversary. While that album challenged the label's cast of characters to build songs from field recordings made inside the Berghain club, Various has a different objective, offering "a space for the artists to release tracks a little off-centre from their known production styles" according to the press release.
Described as "a journey through ambient electro styles to mellow techno grooves," the two 12-inches contain new tunes from Barker & Baumecker, DJ Rolando, Function, Tobias. and others. Marcel Fengler and Efdemin will team up as DIN for a second time, after debuting the project on the just-released MASSE LP, while another new project (this one anonymous) comes under the name Crushed Soul.
