Oops, this different to any music we did after that. This release covers the music we have done between CYBERDELIC and ABGELAUFEN.
1996 to 1999 was a weird time for electric orange. It was the time of Trip Hop, Electro, Drum'n'Bass and Big Beat, styles we already introduced on CYBERDELIC and before.
Most of the music was made electronically with analogue synthesizers, samplers, Atari ST and the mixing was always live and analogue. At this time digital recording was still very expensive and we didn't own any analogue multitrack recorder anymore, so it was a natural move for us to produce like this.
Many tracks are previous unreleased and some of this music was already released on some CDRs about 20 years ago in very limited editions. These tracks always felt like just raw material, so we had the idea to compile an album of the best parts. All you can hear was done in 1996 to 1999, no remixing or re-recording took place. All we did, was to edit most of the tracks and combine all these bits a continuous mix - like a weird audio movie that could have been the lost album from that era.
More music from that time was released on the album SCHALLAUFNAHMEN under the alias of BLOOP in 1999.

I love Dirk's music and got the lot. I like it so much I had to have it all (well what's available) on vinyl. This is PROPER old-school Berlin-school. In the studio, brilliant, Live pure magic. Thank you Dirk. Robert Wallace
