So it’s been 16 years, has it? It's been a long time, but G-Stone never left you without a beat to step to.
"Sixteen F**king Years Of G-Stone Recordings" collects 25 Tracks on 2 CDs, including new productions by Kruder & Dorfmeister, Tosca, Peace Orchestra, Makossa & Megablast, DJ DSL, Urbs, Rodney Hunter and d.kay as well as classics from the G-Stone vaults. The compilation gathers the complete artist roster of G-Stone and specialists for every kind of beat: turntable masters Urbs and DJ DSL bring Hip Hop and comedy to the table while the productions of Peter Kruder, Rodney Hunter and Megablast & Makossa contain every nuance of dance beats from techno and house to cosmic funk, not to mention an impressive mastery of all the dance-floor-exotica from Africa, Brazil and the rest of Latin America. Jazz and dub are prevalent anyway. The G-Stone range is rounded off by Stereotype and d.kay presenting the post drum & bass interfaces of digi-technology, dubstep and cut-up riddims as well as the glitch-wonk-whatever present. Sugar B gets all wacky, Marsmobil sound Air-esk and Richard Dorfmeister & Rupert Huber´s Tosca is meditative and experimental at the same time.
G-Stone to the bone – a feeling like being under the influence of a soft drug that induces a lasting and clear-headed euphoria, a vaccine against the soulless musical trash and plain angsty or merely hysterical laptop-pop and meaninglessness that so often dominates the hype machine. Like a poem that speaks of time, time unlimited, time undefined. Check these mad men and the pie they had their fingers in. Bedroom rockers and festival headliners, dub organisers and sessionists, futurists of nostalgia, continental purveyors of funk, alchemists of the sonic texture, a brand Danubian.
Let them eat cake. Or fight with it.
