Desolat is proudly based in Düsseldorf, and is therefore happy to announce this new release: a 12″ full of music with a definite sense of place. Eerie synthesiser pulses, funk-infused drums and languid guitar-scapes have been part of the musical topology of Düsseldorf since the early Seventies: and this particular release pays full tribute to that legacy, with Jagd Auf Den Hirsch ("Hunt for the Stag") comprising an eerie piece of swampy lazer-forest rock. This sound is also a modern day staple of Düsseldorf’s nightlife at the Salon des Amateurs, a small bar attached to the Kunsthalle art gallery that is an oasis of hypnotic disco nightmares. The Salon is where Der Räuber und der Prinz made their first live appearance in 2008 (when the original composition for Moogwalzer was debuted), and both members of the band frequently play there: Ralf Beck with his bodyrocking club act Unit 4 and Sebastian as half of art-rock duo Noblesse Oblige. Meanwhile two of the guests on this release - Detlef Weinrich also known as Toulouse Lowtrax, contributing words about a ghostly maiden on Moogwalzer, and Thomas Klein contributing drums to Jagd auf den Hirsch - are both original members of the quintessential Düsseldorf act Kreidler. Salon DJ resident Vladimir Ivkovic also had a hand in the creative clarion call for the Jagd auf den Hirsch ("Hunt for the Stag"). To complete the circle, Düsseldorf’s new resident and Desolat mainstay Guti wrote his remix in the middle of the night in Buenos Aires, as a kind of letter to his new home-to-be. There we have it: a true tribute to a city we love, with tracks for the dancefloor as well as moments of melancholic contemplation.

Respekt! Dass ihr als Düsseldorfer Label jetzt einen Krautrock-Release auf Desolat rausbringt

finde ich echt bemerkenswert!

Da bezieht ihr euch auf die musikalische Tradition aus den Siebzigern, die schon mal weltweit

fŸr Furore gesorgt hat. Der Conny Plank wŸrde sich freuen darŸber und ich freu mich auch!

Das Vinyl hole ich mir auf jeden Fall.

Vielen Dank für den Mut, full Support!

Tim Green


BOOOOOOMB Release!!! Full support and charted!



Quite alternative to the usual Desolate output which was a surprise and refreshing even if it wasnt really my thing..

It's getting more and more interesting on this label.

I love it and "Jagd auf den Hirsch" will definitely find the way into my sets, while the rest will be stored on the ipod for heavy rotation.
