Fauxpas Musik’s anniversary is coming up! The fresh and small label with its origin in Hamburg got started on the vinyl market in december 2009.
It now presents the 8th release with the catalogue number 007. It’s a three track EP produced by Phidias. He created three brilliant tracks as a tribute to Convextion aka Gerard Hanson. At the Berghain you can still listen to his debut title “Cygnus Astratus” by the label ‘Freund der Familie’. As always this EP comes in coloured vinyl, but this time also with a special silkscreen artprint by Hinterhoflinks.
A truly remarkable album! I'd like to add that this is one of very few albums that I think truly sound better on vinyl, as it only enhances the intended experience. Every little bit seeps with atmosphere, like watching a dystopian, heavily grainy, space movie with ships surveying distant planets. That goes for the artwork as well, to which I'm sure everyone can agree, is the perfect marriage of both sound and visualization. Here's to hoping there'll be a 2846! Trisska
