04.02.2012 RIP Mike Kelley.
We had been in contact just recently.....feels very strange, unreal and depressing; hollow. He was an inspiring artist and human being and he will be missed thoroughly. You should check out his musical output of the past years - it's highly original and inimitable and had been clouded by his visual art. Yummy Puffy Mommy Yoni is one of my favourite records ever. He had sent over the Boogie Man CD just a few days before his death and it's a helluva fun. I'm imagining him jamming with a bunch of 6 and 7 year old kids. Chocolate, dolphins.....good times.
16.01.2012 QWARTZ AWARDS:
Iibiis Rooge are nominated for a Qwartz Discovery Award. It's a public voting process and you can vote for them here:
02.08.2011 We have now reduced most of the editions down to 400 copies (sometimes 300) so some of the releases will be selling out faster than usual. We simply can't afford to rent more warehouse space (the appartment is too small) and wait for a year or three for releases to sell out. That means some people will miss on certain LP's when they sell out fast but you can always buy downloads at the usual sources (which will support the musicians and the label) or, I guess, find the music somewhere if you can't afford / don't want to buy it.
That said, I have to emphasize that all our vinyl is (and always has been) mastered & cut at Berlin's Dubplates&Mastering for highest quality.
We are down to the last 10 - 20 copies of the Datashock 2LP and the KFW/Alien Radio split is now sold out.
Same goes for Dekorder 012, 018, 030, 031, 040

19.12.2008 "Most beautiful record
this time is probably the Hasenlove picture disk
by Hamburg's Antonia Leukers (Dekorder).
Primarily a visual artist, she was emboldened to
stretch her brain into musical realms by a
theoretical encounter with Die Todliche Doris.
Her music is informed by that, but is a unique
collage of sap-pop and bizarre inventions. Quite
remarkable and a lovely piece of rabbity love by
