the third ep by the durian brothers is called cubs" ep and completes the trilogy of _ج¨¬Årst recordings by the durian brothers to express their unique vision of a rough and direct club music that has its roots in minimal techno, noise and ethnic trance music. like its precursors, it comes in a foldout silkscreened cover; the cover artwork is again taken from the medicine book of the 1920s and re_ج¨‚Äöects the durian brothers aesthtics of dense, analogue black and whiteness. the A1 track heat is a radical approach in polyrhythmic trance-eternity: no bassdrum and bassline anymore, on , just a metallic sounding rhythm which goes on and on. even dj _å¬Å\r\ns will have a questionmark on their face... B1 deals with a slower, more sparse beat that stays at 90 bpm and shows more traditional club music structures. B2 is a listening-track which might be a challenge for your nerves and sounds a bit like an uncanny piece of minimal _ج¨¬Ålm soundtrack.\r\nplay loud. the durian brothers play with 4 prepared turntables (without vinyl), a sequencer, effects and some tiny bits & pieces for treatments.

After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.
This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).
Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.
Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.
Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).
So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
