Just djed in Kentucky last night and now i’m winding down with some old favorites. Ulrich Schnauss‘ “Stars” off his latest LP from last year was a great listen always on roadtrips. He recently just collaborated with A Shoreline Dream on a track called “Neverchanger” but I posted one of their older tracks that first caught my ear. They have a very nice old Verve sound to them, with all the shoegaze essentials like swirling guitars and wall-after-wall of sound.
As for Farben(aka Jan Jelinek) and Mujuice, I don’t think these could be any different from the other two tracks. The cover above is from a Farben 4x vinyl boxset called Starbox which included 4 photos of different bank robbers from the 70’s, i think they were all German but I may be wrong. I loved the layout of the whole package, if you get a chance to ever see one at the record store, pick it up and open it.
As for Mujuice i having nothing else by him but this track, I found it on a Russian internet radio station called deepmix.ru which I highly recommend if you like this track.

Mujuice is very Representative for the work of deepmix.ru They are some sort of a collective of DJ’s who seek to live an avid lifestyle of creation and collaboration.

Yeah that Ulrich album is terrific. He’s such a nice guy too, got to meet him here in NY last here after his show. Shine and Stars live were quite amazing.
As for Muujuice, you have to check out this release, it’s free and it’s my absolute favorite of his and one of my top albums of such genre along with yours.
Here’s a link, I am certain you are going to love it.

I wish I had friends that listened to the same music as me.
I gave a friend a copy of a Boards of Canada album and my room mate said, “Watch out, that’ll put you in a coma.”
I didn’t have the heart to tell him that listening to Dashboard Confessional is the reason why his father doesn’t speak to him anymore.

Xander, dont you wish Fragment was still releasing music? I wonder whats up with that. I have been an avid mujuice fan since I first discovered him on Fragment, through deepmix.ru. He definately stands out as offering a style of dance that is not commonly found since the days of Farben and Tilman Ehrhorn with his Task album. There are several artists that carry a similar torch, but few are quite as nostalgic. Good post!
