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.
The (mixed) CD version of 'K' is a favourite of mine. So lush. So deep. Especially the build up to the finale of Untitled(1) aka K3.
So I thought I'd pick up this digital version to have the separate tracks. Was shocked to find out that it puts them in an entirely different order! Worse yet, they were just split and faded in/out - the orig studio versions weren't used.
So, for the best experience, I recommend changing the order to: K4, K1, K3; K6, K5, K2, K7. - or best yet, find a CD version. Simon Chester
