It’s time for another trip to Bahnsteig 23. Literally translating as ‘Platform 23’, the German label’s releases take you on quite a journey. But while the destination isn’t always clear, the sleaze-fuelled expeditions never fail to entertain and with Dunkeltier aka Sneaker DJ in the driving seat for a fourth offering, we weren’t expecting any major diversions (not sorry for a single one of those puns).
The label’s Soundcloud blurbs are some of the most entertaining around and the latest isn’t afraid of treading on any toes. When you mention that the next effort isn’t your typical “beige balearic nu disco shite”, the music better be good. Well in the case of BAH026 it most certainly is – Dunkeltier following up a spellbinding effort for Macadam Mambo with four edits of pulsing krautrock rhythm, arpeggiating bass synth and industrial-referencing percussion.
BAH026 is out in vinyl format on December 21st. Pre-order it here.
