The return of Ekman and reissues of Unit Moebius and Danny Wolfers material feature.
The long running Bunker Records opened its account for 2014 in fine style by welcoming some new faces into the fold. Local talent Klankman issued a self-titled debut for the Bunker 4000 series, whilst sub-label Panzerkreuz issued two records from Juno Plus favourite Helena Hauff; one a solo 12″ called Return To Disorder and the other a split release with Den Haag pairing Ghetto Jam as Black Sites, the ongoing production partnership with fellow Pudel resident f#x. News now arrives that the next batch of records from the Bunker will see the return of artists more readily associated with the iconic Hague-based label.
Having made his debut as Ekman on Panzerkreuz back in 2012 with the Untitled 12″, Roel Dijcks is set to return to the label after a run of killer releases for Berceuse Heroique, Shipwrec, Gooiland Elektro, Abstract Forms and Solar One. Titled simply Panzerkreuz 1015, the forthcoming record features some six untitled tracks that the label describe as “dark and menacing and heavily-pounding industrial techno/electro”. Complementing this, the Bunker 4000 series will be further embellished by two intriguing reissues from Dutch musical royalty.
The Unit Moebius albums Kuiken P.1 and Pt.2 have been licensed for reissue after first seeing release on Berlin label Cross Fade Enter Tainment back in 1996, two of numerous albums recorded by the godfathers of The Hague in this period. It’s joined by a 12″ issue of tracks from Florenza Mavelli’s Special Brigade, the album of Giallo-inspired music Danny Wolfers self-released as Florenza Mavelli on CDr through his Strange Life Records label back in 2009. You can preview all four releases below ahead of their arrival next month.
