Ostgut-Ton have announced a series of three single releases of tracks (the first two vinyl, third digital) from Ben Klock’s Berghain 04 mix CD.
First up is Martyn, helming the A-side of the first 12” with ‘Miniluv’. Not as instantly gratifying as past Martyn cuts, it sounds like he’s made it very much with the label in mind, without compromising what makes him great. The B-side is provided by Berlin’s Roman Lindau, one of the men behind the Fachwerk label, who contributes the industrial-leaning ‘Keppra’. That 12” will be released on June 14.
The second 12” to be taken from the mix CD features tracks from two UK techno artists, namely James Ruskin and Kevin Gorman. Ruskin, co-founder of the Blueprint label, contributes the reduced, fizzing ‘Graphic’, while Gorman of the Mikrowave label provides the brilliantly-named ‘7am Stepper’. That will drop on June 28. The third 12” is, as of yet, a mystery. For full details of Ben Klock’s Berghain 04, click here.
