>> Snork1000: Neil Landstrumm – 1000
+++ Breaking News +++ Snork Enterprises goes back to the future. For this one-of-a-kind release we decided to skip a few catalogue numbers and go straight to “#1000”. Because nothing less than those four big blocky letters could describe the boldness of this record containing the most groundbreaking tracks of the 1990s underground techno scene by one of the most snorky and most famous artists: MR. NEIL LANDSTRUMM.
Quoting him: “It’s an ep of some of the most influential tracks of the alternative UK techno sound from the 1990s. The UK school of techno was wildly different to the more accepted Detroit techno imports of the time, gnashing its teeth to an altogether more alternative and cracked out beat. The whole point of it was to sound as different and unique as possible. Standing out was the ‘thing’ then, not the business techno of today.”
In the spirit of a time, which was bursting with energy, Snork Enterprises was founded. And exactly those tracks have had a major impact on the further development of the unique snorky label sound. The following statement by the label owner CHRISTIAN SCHACHTA makes it crystal clear: “For me this release is highly emotional because it reflects the very roots of Snork Enterprises. Neil was one of the artists who have influenced the sound of the label the most, and especially those four tracks have always belonged to my top favorite ones. As soon as I sensed there was a chance of putting them altogether on one record as a re-release, I could not withhold myself but give it a try and finally and fortunately publish one of the most important Snork Enterprises releases of all times – for the label and for me personally.”
NEIL LANDSTRUMM has released records on a wide variety of electronic musics’ finest labels over the last two decades and is one of the true innovators in techno. Highlights include 12”s and LP’s for Peacefrog, Tresor and Planet Mu records and has recently released his tenth career LP, ‘Dragon Under’ on the UK’s Sneaker Social Club label. 2017 has seen a plethora of 12″s including synthwave and italo style tracks on the Giallo Disco and Moustache records from the Clone family in Holland. Other noteworthy collaborations have been with Optimo’s JD Twitch as Doubleheart, Sugar Experiment Station with Tobias Schmidt and Modini with Alan ‚Hostage‘ Parley recently released on Dixon Avenue Basement Jams. Essentially a live hardware-based artist since the beginning of his career, he has toured internationally for the last 20 years with regular events in Europe, Japan and China. Landstrumm also lived in New York for a number of years but is now based back in Edinburgh working from his own Witness Rooms studio. A pioneer of new electronic styles with a strong signature techno sound often copied and imitated, he has always been, and continues to be, a unique electronic artist.
It’s a distinct sound diving deep down into the spheres of genuine underground techno where bass-lines surround your mind and the fascination of a gloomy yet groovy world of sounds inevitably enters your head.
