gg_byCatlinGudrun Gut, the artistic powerhouse behind labels Monika Enterprise and Moabit Musik is a musician with an extraordinary legacy – be it as a member of Berlin’s legendary act Malaria, OceanClub, her acclaimed solo projects or recently a collaboration with Faust’sHans Joachim Irmler. Gudrun Gut has a proven track record of successfully connecting with like-minded artists on unusual paths of creativity. She’s an outstanding example of someone who refuses to compromise their artistic vision.

Monika Werkstatt has its origins in collective workshops and in shared interactions. By sharing their own challenges and achievements later on with an audience, this opened a gateway to a further feedback and creative dialogue. Every moment, every gesture, every communication has been about empowerment, both individually and as a group.

So what is this release really about?
M90_Werkstatt_ArtworkGudrun’s fellow Monika members – AGF, Beate Bartel, Lucrecia Dalt, Danielle De Picciotto, Islaja, Barbara Morgenstern, Sonae, Pilocka Krach – travelled from Berlin and assembled in the creative oasis of Uckermark. The goal was to create and record without any of the usual pressures and distractions that you’d anticipate in a group context. Once the recordings were completed, representatives of the group were delegated roles for a finished production – some sequenced and mixed the recordings into their own tracks, while others built their own from the material recorded. The results succeed in showcasing the community as a group, as well as portraying singular pieces of art derived from a collective process.

Playing selections on the show on the 2nd July.

Available now on double vinyl or CD, check it out at Monika Enterprise.

New releases from Enfant Terrible/Goiland Elektro

Watch out groovers, there are three hot new releases heading your way mid-late June from our chums at Enfant Terrible/Goiland Elektro records but you will need to jump on them quick as they are all limited to 200 copies. Here is the lowdown:

Europ Europ – Songs From The Heart (LP, 200 copies + 10 copies special edition)

Expected around mid June


Europ Europ returns to Enfant Terrible… the band is no longer a duo as they recruited a new member: Mrs Europ on harp… this addition to the band and the sound is significant… the music has become more dreamlike and hypnotic… still the analogue primitive rhythms are there… making this nothing short of contemporary ritual music…

6 track, 12″ vinyl


Ian Martin – Rites Of Passage (12″ EP, edition of 200 copies, screen printed sleeve)

Expected around mid June


ET051-GOOILAND-28-Label-A-Web-300x300Ian Martin should be no stranger to people who are into elektro and trippy electronics… with releases on Bunker, Panzerkreuz and Strange Life his reputation is quite settled… for Gooiland Elektro he came up with four tracks filled with dark beats… from pounding to spacey… elektro and EBM influenced with industrial tendencies…

4 track, 12″ vinyl


Zosima – Apropos Of The Wet Snow (LP, 200 copies)

Expected around mid June

Zosima-ET049-www-front-300x300Zosima already delivered some great releases in the field of techno, post-techno and industrial music… this for example on his own Noiztank label. For Enfant Terrible he crafted a dark industrial soundscape record… post-techno for connoisseurs… recommended to fans of Oake, Kerridge, Shaped Noise and Mondkopf…

6 track, 12″ vinyl

New Left Lane Cruiser album out May 19th

Alive Natural Sound Records release the latest Left Lane cruiser album Claw Machine Wizard on May 19th on CD and a limited run on super-sexy starburst Vinyl.

llcHeaded by slide guitar extraordinaire Freddy J IV, and backed by drumming machine Pete Dio, Left Lane Cruiser has been making records for over a decade, and along with their music being featured in many hit television series such as Banshee, Breaking Bad, and Nashville, they have been receiving critical acclaim across the globe.

Indiana’s trash-blues outfit is back with an album of high-energy R&B.  “Claw Machine Wizard” is a return to the band’s two man format, and features corky barn burners like “Claw Machine Wizard” and “Booga Chaka”, alongside punked out blues numbers such as “Burn Em Brew” and “High Maintenance”.  The album even includes a soul/reggae-influenced ballad titled “Lay Down”, showing that the boys can step out of their comfort zone.

These claw machine wizards have definitely come up with a prize with this record. – VIVE LE ROCK (8/10)

Left Lane Cruiser’s appeal is immediate, reaching into our deepest, most primal needs for music that moves both the feet and the soul. – POPMATTERS

Powerfully raw, gritty rock and blues music. – ATWOOD MAGAZINE

Think slide-infused Mississippi delta blues, played in a sweaty punk club, and you’re in the right ballpark. Mmmm tasty. – CLASSIC ROCK

An album full of catchy chord progressions and repetitive trance inducing rhythmic constructions. – BLUES ROCK REVIEW (8/10)

The guitar playing is memorable; there are riffs everywhere that just make you want to dance, baby, and that’s what this album is all about. – I94 BAR (5/5 beers!)

Tracks featured on the show on the 28th May.
