Prostitutes, Svengalisghost and Basic House also offer their take on Konrad Becker's early-'80s material.
Monoton is Konrad Becker, an Austrian artist and researcher who's been involved with minimal synth since the late '70s. His early-'80s LPs, Monotonprodukt 02 and Monotononprodukt 07, got the vinyl reissue treatment from French imprint Desire back in 2012 and 2014. Now the label will follow up with two 12-inches of remixed material off of those albums, with a list of remixers that includes Northern Electronics boss Abdulla Rashim, Opal Tapes founder Basic House and Prostitutes, plus a collaboration between L.I.E.S. mainstays Svengalisghost and Ron Morelli. UK producer Scanner, AKA Robin Rimbaud, also takes a swing, as do Modern Love duo Rainer Veil and Sergie Rezza.
