Released: Aug 2008
Label: Basic Channel
Despite their steadfastly underground attitude, Berlin's Basic Channel managed to get the word out: they're the undisputed masters of dub techno and rank among minimal's most important forebears. This, their second comp, collects tracks from vinyl 12-inch singles that appeared in the early '90s. Ranging from clattering percussive maelstroms to ambient washes that sound like a cassette that's been dubbed dozens of times, these tracks still sound ahead of their time.
