Romans – Valere Aude [BK020]

Valere Aude, the debut album from Romans, a collaborative project between New York techno producer Gunnar Haslam and Vienna-based acid evangelist Johannes Auvinen (aka Tin Man). Featuring 12 tracks of hallucinogenic, psychedelic techno, Valere Aude is an acid-etched trip to the outer reaches of the mind. The finished product is a steamy, moody record, experimenting with atmospheres, tempos, and sounds, designed for blistering hot days and cold, rainy nights. We couldn’t be more excited to share it with you.

Ian Martin – Seer [PZ1016]

Rotterdam’s Ian Martin has brought his own brand of dark ambient and unsettling electronics to a stellar clutch of labels. Of these, it is the Bunker/Panzerkreuz crew that Martin has become most readily associated with, perhaps due to the fact label and artist reside in the Netherlands. Wright Seer finds Martin back on Panzerkreuz for his first release of 2016 and features five more untitled tracks of subtle drone-electro hybrids that sound all the more mind-bending with each successive listen.

F. Mavelli – Special Brigade [B4003]

The Special Brigade – one of Legowelt’s best fictitious classic-italian-late-’70’s-police-horror-cult-movie electronic techno music soundscape. Florenza Mavelli’s Special Brigade soundtrack (aka Uomini Brigata Specialle) an obscure italian tv-series tells the story of an elite special government police unit formed to counter terrorism and organized crime. It first surfaced on the legendary CBS blog late 2007, only to fade into obscurity again after the old CBS’s foreclosure. In 2009 it was remastered from vintage reel to reel tape and released on Danny’s Strange Life label on a CD album. Now Bunker brings it back! It’s great to taste six of those dramatic cuts on vinyl finally.

Ghetto Gem vs Black Sites – 1029 [PANZER1029]

More fresh new talent from The Hague (Baz Reznik) vs more fresh new talent from Hamburg (F#X in cooperation with Helena Hauff), acid house ghetto tech jam retardedness vs heavy-pounding and brain-crushing acidic darkcore techno insanity.

Helena Hauff – 1028 [PANZER1028]

Hamburg’s saviour of the Reeperbahn darkness, ‘la belle dame sans merci’ from the notorious ‘Golden Pudel’ club, her menacing and ruthless sound strongly reminiscent of ‘Beverly Hills 808303/Interr-Ference’ from The Hague’s sinister ’90’s

The Exaltics – The Great Escape [PANZERKREUZ1011]

https://imagescdn.juno.co.uk/300/CS496338-01A-MED.jpg

Barely escaping the latest ‘Treuhand’ terror of the ex-Weimar Republic, ex-Third Reich and ex-DDR territory, ‘The Exaltics’ finally comes with His fourth and heaviest piece of ‘Zwangsarbeit’ so far within the realm of the Bunker/Panzerkreuz corpus, as this is true black ritual acid and darkcore industrial techno to the max! oh, by the way, did I already mention the war?

Perseus Traxx – Deep Penetration Of The Feeble Mind [B3098]

https://imagescdn.juno.co.uk/300/CS496340-01A-MED.jpg

New and improved Bunker / Panzerkreuz Records! A 4 inlay with artwork by Perseus Traxx himself + red Bunker stamp! More drug-induced deep house for more deep penetration of that feeble mind, and as usual mr. Rogers delivers with the most authentic chicagoan ‘eighties’ jackin’ sound the year of the Lord 2013 may witness…

Finally out of little Britain, ahum, sorry, out of little Paxton, Mr. Rogers is currently thriving on his newly acquired medication of high-quality codeine, all thanks to the benign blessings of the pharmaceutical industry: His house is definitely jackin’ it deeper and browner than ever before, almost sounding like a Ron Hardy shooting up at the end of a hard day’s night back in the days of the warehouse.
