Sex Is Not Right EP (Ltd Edition)

A 6 track house ep (4m 30s) — released December 22nd 2023 on Elaste Records

"Sex Is Not Right" is a cool atmospheric garage house track with chords that give you goosebumps. The other tracks can be classified under breakbeat, big beat, sampledelic, which is currently back on the turntables of young DJs.

The Kassel-based duo Some More Crime formed in 1990 with the idea of using the spoken voice, sampled from pre-internet media, as an exclusive text instrument. While studying art, drummer Bernd Friedmann (Burnt Friedmann / Nonplace Urban Field) had joined forces with guitarist Frank Hernandez to study and understand the abysses of the connection between violence in the media, or mind control, and to bring these to fruition in the studio as quasi-collages with grooves. Some More Crime can be seen today as a latecomer to Laibach, or as a conceptual precursor to Rammstein. With their third CD, comprising 23 tracks, the constructors of samplers and Atari sequencers, Frank Hernandez and Burnt Friedman finally managed to come into the focus of international attention in 1993. Their predominantly American-derived, de-contextualized text clusters of interviews with violent criminals and related media commentary attempted to demonstrate that the stiffening interpretive sovereignty of media narratives was capable of at least one thing, namely, instead of having a meaning-making effect, it was capable of throwing the masses into fear and confusion.
With Friedmann's move to Cologne, Some More Crime ended already in 1994/95, after 3 studio albums. Single-handedly, Friedmann produced a fourth, though little noticed CD, bringing sketches begun to completion and release in 1996. ZZO recordings founder Thomas Luckmann, Nuremberg, took up the duo in 1990 and supported the artistic work despite strong crosswinds of the emerging, irresistible techno sound that began to blow through Germany's music scene in the early 90s.
