h.s.t.a. / LP

A full length album by Dutch electro pioneer, Das Ding. Das Ding is Danny Bosten, who was active in the early 80's releasing his music and friends music via his own cassette label called Tear Apart Tapes. While studying graphic design in art school, he designed all the tape covers himself. Meanwhile, he recorded his own music as Das Ding. Powerful dark electro, some tracks are quite addictive and danceable while others are more for at home listening enjoyment. The dancefloor killer is somewhere between "Reassurance Ritual" and "H.S.T.A.". The record features lovingly remastered tracks, and is pressed on 180 gram vinyl with a printed inner sleeve featuring Danny's drawings... Repress ;)

why is my life so boring? / LP

Great debut release for Electronic Emergencies hailing from Rotterdam! They present their 1st release, a new album of Dutch coldwave legend Das Ding: 'Why Is My Life So Boring?' It's a brand new 10-track album, which sounds crisp and young in the club and mature when you play it at home. Das Ding has always had that certain thing; strict and detached beats combined with warm melancholic melodies, emotionally distant and intense at the same time. The sound is clearly analogue and very specific since Danny Bosten (aka Das Ding) rebuilds his vintage synths and builds his own sequencers and modular systems. The album was mastered by Alden Tyrell. It's the 1st album release of Das Ding after the brilliant 80's album 'H.S.T.A.' released on Minimal Wave records. Tip ! (sleeveless version !)

Danny Bosten's Das Ding project is no newcomer to the scene. In fact, the Dutch pseudo electro artist has been active since the mid 80's via his quirky Tear Apart Tapes label, dealing specifically in cassettes until this new 7". "Nerd" is one of those tunes that crosses many genres and paths, taking the spirit of Kraftwerk and placing it onto a new plateau that is both relevant and inclusive of contemporary styles and ideas.. That bassline could be left on for hours on end! "Intermission" is similarly leftfield, except that here Bosten scraps the buzzy bassline in favour of more tranquil sounds and samples that edge on the Japanese end of the spectrum. Very recommended !!

missing tapes / LP

Strong album of long lost tracks by Dutch electronic music pioneer Das Ding, entitled 'Missing Tapes'. Danny Bosten formed Das Ding as a solo project in the early 80's and released his music and friends' music via his own cassette label called Tear Apart Tapes. At the time, he was studying graphic design at art school, and in turn he ended up designing the artwork, cassette-sleeves and illustrations for the label himself. Meanwhile, he recorded his own music as Das Ding. Powerful dark electro, he made several addictive and danceable tracks which later become hits. Danny made all his music in his bedroom which essentially turned into a small recording studio. He went on to release many of his own tapes and also played some live gigs. Old tapes were uncovered around 2010, and MW released a remastered version of 'H.S.T.A.' and select other tracks. A wave of renewed interest followed the record's release and soon people were in touch to propose live shows. 20 years later, and after some deliberation, Das Ding was reincarnated under its old moniker but now with a revised line-up and a working set-up that reflected inevitable technological change. Recently, Danny came across further tape archives from those early days. And from the batch, MW selected their favorites to present us in vinyl release form. 'Missing Tapes' is a limited edition LP pressed on 180gr creamy yellow vinyl, and housed in a heavy weight printed glossy black and white sleeve featuring one of Danny's original illustrations from 1982. Essential !

dream decay / 7"

Since Minimal Wave released a fine compendium of his early 80's work as Das Ding back in 2009, Danny Bosten has become something of a cult artist. His latest missive on the re-born Tear Apart Tapes label is a tasty 7" featuring 2 new, all-analogue jams in his distinctive style. The title track is a boisterous and cheerily melodious affair, sitting somewhere between leftfield instrumental synth-pop and glistening italo-disco. Flipside "16 (New Mix)" is slower and more contemplative. It features bold electro bass, hip-hop tempo drum machine percussion, drowsy chords and woozy synthesizer melodies. It's the kind of analogue electronica that boasts a timeless quality, despite its contemporary construction.

7Ē single of 2 early demos ("Kindheitsmuster" and "Raid") by Dutch electronic music pioneer Das Ding. The final versions of these tracks were released on 'H.S.T.A.' and the 'Missing Tapes', respectively. The versions here are the most raw and electric recordings we have heard by Das Ding yet.
