Press Info:
We live in a complicated age. As the global population rises, the demand for work increases, while the possibilities dwindle. This is further exacerbated when governments turn inwards, destroying their own people. For these reasons among many others, it is now more critical than ever that we approach our fellow human beings with a sense of compassion, understanding, and helpfulness.

Our mission at Unrush has always been to help unravel the stresses of daily life. Whether it be through our monthly podcasts or our event series in Berlin, we have continually aimed to alleviate the complications inherent in simply existing. With the launch of The Unrush Tapes, we have now decided to do something palpable in order to share the music we love while simultaneously relieving some of the real, serious problems that burden people’s lives. Therefore, all profits from this tape will go to help4people in Berlin e.V., a non-profit charity dedicated to seeing the successful integration of the much overlooked African immigrants in Berlin.

Musically we have turned to many past Unrush contributors for their generous offerings, including Wanderwelle, Shaded Explorer, Katya Yonder, Bleak, Sirko Mueller, 3KZ, John Heckle and many others. With a textural palate to match the diversity of mankind, there is a subtle narrative that forms throughout the compositions. Equipped with unlimited sonic possibilities, they bring us to a place of eternal peace that resides within us all. This is the place that we want to explore. Welcome to the world of Unrush.

Terence Fixmer

Info:
During the recent years, Terence Fixmer kept on being prolific by producing and releasing his music output on well esteemed quality labels such as Ostgut Ton, Novamute, Jealous God and recently on Aufnahme+Wiedergabe. Following a constant workflow, Fixmer decided it is now time to restart his label Planete Rouge which he launched back in 1998 already but has always been irregular in terms of releases. The label will relaunch after a 4-year hiatus with his new 12”.

Terence Fixmer’s ‘Oppression’ EP is a great resume of his unique sound design signature, delivering a collection of four energetic tracks that speaks to the soul.

On top of it, as an homage to one of his all time favourite tracks of ‘The Normal / Warm Leatherette’ from 1978, Fixmer decided to rewrite this 40 year old tune from Daniel Miller as a a personal pleasure and fun. By using as well the Mini Korg 700 S Terence Fixmer recreated nearly the original sound, keeping a track that is loyal to his own sound as well as its original spirit.

Press Info:
A portrayal of Mekas’ latest ambient excursions, Entropy is his first solo album, and it marks a highlight in the career of a producer whose artistry continuously reshapes its standing ground. This time in search of more introspective depths of his music, the album reflects a side of Mekas that he has been keen on exploring for some time now, bringing to light new layers of his sonorous identity.

Slowly evolving atmospheric motifs blended with a subtly designed sound palette have been merged by Mekas into nine carefully composed immersive tracks. A precise balance supports the artist’s musical configuration in this album, a distinct work that has been inspired by the paradoxes of today’s world.

Press Info (German):
Nach jahrelanger Abstinenz, melden sich MICROWELT mit neuem Sound & EP zurück und dies dann noch bei *Electro-Shock-Records*.

Das minimalistische Electro/Synth-Projekt von Thoralf Dietrich ,seines Zeichens Sänger & Kopf der EBM-Helden Jäger 90, meldet sich nun fast 10 x Jahre nach dem Release der Vinyl Single beim “Hertzschrittmacher”-Label mit einer neuen EP und dem klangvollen Namen “A1” zurück. Die EP CD enthält 5 x Songs…deren Strahlkraft sich erst nach mehrmaligen Hören voll entfaltet.

Dieses Mal wird die Autobahn unsicher gemacht. Zu fetten Bässen und klaren verspielten Synth-Klängen werdet ihr direkt auf die Autobahn A1 geleitet, so der Name ihrer aktuellen EP. Wer schon immer mal “deutsche Country Music”, so wie sie MICROWELT verstehen, hören wollte, sollte diese CD sein Eigen nennen. Wir denken, dass auch Metroland,Komputer, Deutsche Bank oder Kraftwerk-Fans hier in musikalischer Hinsicht voll auf Ihre Kosten kommen. Die CD ist nur auf 300 x Exemplare limitiert und wird daher wieder sicherlich schnell zu einen gesuchten Sammlerobjekt avancieren.
