From 1979 to 1983, the Australian Terse Tapes label made cassette compilations. These are in danger of becoming “classics”, a complete betrayal of the energy that made them. There is no better antidote to cloying nostalgia than the corpse getting up and refusing the funeral.
So instead say that from 1979 to 2015, Terse Tapes made compilations, and here is more of the same. You could put it on a cassette if that matters.
I invited a few people I know, and they invited a few people they know, and music started to arrive in my inbox. I refused to listen to any of it until April Fools day. No one curated anything, although some people were nice enough to chase up their friends.
Having heard this music over the last 24 hours I can divide it into some useful ‘sides’, but keep in mind you are able to arrange it however you like in this non-linear wonderland in which we are trapped.
Side A: people who have doubts about music.
Side B: people who do not fear a pretty tune.
Side C: people that make graphs and grids.
Side D: people who could plausibly perform in a public ale house
Side T: time lords

В поисках новых форм, группа открывает следующую главу в сотрудничестве с электронными проектами: на “Cold Wave” представлены совместные работы и ремиксы с участием Haunt и Gnothi Seauton. В течении шести месяцев восемь песен и ремиксов превратились в единое целое, что и стало альбомом “Cold Wave”: скитания по холодным пустошам в попытках заново найти себя.
Emphase is an acid techno track in its purest form: an acidline which wobbles and cuts through the bass while at the same time chilling as it drives you on.
Mseq’s remix of Emphase is the perfect oldskool detroitesque counterpart of the original. It is also built on the acidline but has its own character. The way the harmonies are being played emphasizes his great style.
Burn it down is a raw house track with vocal shreds animating you to burn down things. We encourage you to dance to the groove of this chicago-style tune instead.
Here we are again, celebrating GERGAZ’s 6th year with annual compilation from the BEAT GARDEN series. We kept things the way you like them and put together 17-track collection offering an array of efforts from across the beat and bass scene. As usually we have selected tracks we feel deserve your attention, tracks by artists we like, our residents and by those that we have discovered along the way.
Massive thank you to everyone involved, our long time supporters and of course to you, GERGAZ fans!

First edition of the compilation organized by the network ‘Un altro trapiantato musicale’ made possible by the collaborations between different musicians from different realities working together in a net-collective.
“Saudade” is a word difficult to define, which expresses a sense of melancholy, yearning or longing. A beautiful memory for what has been lived and painful because will not come back.
In this new work, [Miga51] “S A U D A D E”, from Burdeos in our netlabel, all these feelings pile up while listening the 8 tracks that give shape to this release. Electronic music as way of expression and created to generate emotions..
