With it´s raw brass n´ bass, dirty guitar licks and afro flavoured Latin percussion The Menheads original became a hot floor-dittie and much respected “premiere release” in October 2000. On “La Politique Remixed” five artists put the original through a rich variety of stylistic twist and turns, resulting in six unique pieces ranging between Nu-Funk, Dub and House...

Markus Dohelsky, Christian Ziereis and Istvan Zachar have been producing fine electronica for almost a decade, covering such diverse styles as Dub, House, Electro, Funk, Breakbeat, Ambient and Techno.

Since their foundation in 1999 Hamburg based Fellman & Louise aka “Electric Mojo” Resident Michael Sauer & Pianowizard Max Fellmann have been  pursuing a distinguished mélange of Breakbeat, Electro, Jazz and Funk. “World Police Update” displays not only their ability for multilayered and beat conscious production work but for dadaistic proto-punk cynism’ as well…

C2 The Menheads — La Politique (Uko Flavoured) [4:41]

UKO - brainchild of brothers Martin and Jürgen Nussbaum stands for some of the most original downtempo tracks to arrise from Viennas Nu-Skool in the past couple of years.

D2 The Menheads — La Politique (Shanti Roots Burning Remix) [4:33]

On their second “La Politique” Remix by the Shanti Roots settle into an ambient flavoured mood underlayed  by a Sinister, badalamentish tone. Sublime burner…


"6 Remixe des Tracks von dem Album der Menheads, von Shanti Roots, die sehr lässig rockenden Apreggiator Dub aus dem Track machen, Fellmann & Louise von Combination die dem ganzen eine fast komische Latinelektro-NoNewYork-Ska Attitude verpassen die einen ganz schön aus dem Konzept bringt vor lauter Stylewitzen, einem etwas zu vollmundig jazzigen Quantic Gangstertreatment, dem trocken rollend morbiden Vocalbackup von UKO, das mit ungewöhnlichen Breaks den Charme früher HipHop Reduktionisten auf MoWax wiederaufgreift und in ein elektroider siedendes Fieber versenkt, einem leicht 2steppigen Latincongablast von Thrust und !Pez aus Berlin, das ein klein wenig weniger Samplewhirlpool auch vertragen hätte und einem deepen detroit Shanti Roots Bonus Mix. Sehr vielseitige und komplett coole Selection" bleed © DE:BUG , June 2002
