MUSLIMGAUZE - Occupied Territories

1996 release. "Manchester-based Muslimgauze is one of the most uncompromising artists the music biz has ever seen. His music is as extreme as the political motivation that goes with it. For more than 15 years, Muslimgauze produced rhythmic music that defies any description. Sometimes lush ambient dub textures, sometimes fierce ethno rhythms. The events in the Middle East was his main inspiration. Organizations such as Hezbollah can find Muslimgauze among their supporters. Many of today's musicians owe a great deal to the Muslimgauze sound. That's why Staalplaat invited a host of groups from today's techno, house and related scene to take the extreme work of Muslimgauze and give that work dancefloor abilities. The reactions were overwhelming and the music goes in many directions. Therefore, Staalplaat present (with pride!) a double CD. Disc One ("Occupied Beats") takes you onto the dancefloor with the dubby music of O Yuki Conjugate and their off-shoots Sons Of Silence and Clicka, Drome, Extremadura, the fucked-up jungle of Self-Transforming Elves and the straightforward, house-y remixes of Human Beings, Elke Dag (who have a connection with Exquisite Corpse) or LØSD. The second disc ("Occupied Frequencies") goes straight into weirdness, emphasizing the moody and atmospheric side of Muslimgauze, in remixes by Nonplace Urban Field, Zoviet*france and Quest. Also with the extremeness of People Like Us, Starfish Pool and the master himself, Occupied Territories is a remix tribute to one of the strongest voices in music." - Staalplaat .

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.
