Minimal Wave is proud to announce our 34th release, a limited edition hand-silkscreened 10 of SCHEDELVRETER (which loosely translates as "Skull Gobber"), the Dutch side project of brilliant minimal synth pioneer DANNY BOSTEN, best known for his project DAS DING. The seven tracks were originally recorded in Dannys home studio in the Netherlands and self-released on a cassette entitled Hunker via his Tear Apart Tapes label in 1985. Unlike Das Ding, Schedelvreter is not pattern-based or sequenced, the synth sounds are hand played over a collage of found sounds. At the time, Danny was experimenting with a Crumar synth that was falling apart, and would sporadically create sounds that were like human voices. He created massive drum sounds by layering noise, using leftover four-track additions in reverse and some live drum recordings courtesy of his brothers tapes. The end result feels narrative and filmic, like the soundtrack to an imaginary apocalyptic movie: bleak and desolate. The newly remastered 10" release is limited to 999 hand-silkscreened numbered copies pressed on black medium weight vinyl." - Minimal Wave.
