demos 1-2-3 / 7"

Limited to only 200 copies with a carefully prepared cover and 2 extra info pages. There are especially 3 titles selected with love by Heinz and Jörg (2 members of the label). A-side : "Return to Utopia" dips us in a pure early 80's cold wave atmosphere with bewitching flights. B-side : "Liebe im Original" is a minimal electro pearl inescapable in this genre. Finally "By my Side" brings us back to rather wave sounds capable of making dancing night birds. In summary 3 tracks, 3 hits and a future collector item !

New album from a Greek duo released on the 90’s and now side sub-label of Kernkrach. As the title said the music is clearly inspired by the 80's. Minimal-synth, cold wave in the vein of Absolute Body Control and great stuffs like that. Highly recommended !

Artist : Brandstifter 

Label : Hertz-Schrittmacher

Weird and hectic NDW music done in an extreme minimalistic way. Expect uptempo tracks with a good energy to them but also crazy industrial influences. And... the title track is an absolute hit. The record comes as a 7" picture disc. Limited to 500 copies ! Special one.

Artist : Ronin 

Label : Hertz-Schrittmacher 

untitled / 7"

Great new minimal music. On this 7" you will find 3 tracks somewhere between minimal synth and minimal electro. Featured is the instant hit "Plaza de America" in a catchy early El Aviador Dro style ! As always with Kernkrach releases the packaging is really… personified and original. Limited to 300 copies with inserts ;-)

Artist : QEK Junior

New contemporary minimal project from Germany. This is the debut record on Herzt-Schrittmacher (sub-label of Kernkrach). 4 awesome tracks of minimal electronic music with a dancefloor attitude and nice mood.

Artist : Wermut / Rod Droid 

Label : Hertz-Schrittmacher 

untitled / 7"

Another great minimal release with Wermut (astonishing duo from Hamburg) on the A-side who play very fine synth combined with Frenchand German lyrics. The band also released a new 10" on the Italian post-industrial Old Europa Café label. On B-side, Rod Droid (a French robotman), sounds like computer games with synth machine... Absolutly great hammer record! You will see…

mein bester freund ist tot / 7"

This is a special edition release and a tribute to Dr Kernkrach’s beloved late dog Bärbel. 4 friends who remain anonymous to date recorded a song each exclusively for this purpose. They are Philippe & Phluffie (“Daisy May”) with an irresistible dancy electro-pop track with female vocals and great instrumental chorus, No-Bell-Preis (“Dein Körbchen ist leer”) with a balladesque ode to late Bärbel, Treue Seelen (“Ein Leben lang”) with an instrumental track leaving room for own thoughts and Nacktmüll 1 (“Automatik Hund”) with a great noisy casio-pop track finishing this versatile ep.. Limited to 220 copies..

Artist : Arnaud Lazlaud 

Label : Hertz-Schrittmacher 

untitled / 7"

Arnaud Lazlaud (aka Xavier Paradis) from Montréal (btw/ where Rational Youth came from…), is also known from being a member of Echo Kitty and Automelodi. The tracks here are pure and danceable electro-pop with a slight melancholic touch and French vocals, and though dating from 1998-99 they actually sound like being from 1984. Simply beautiful... In our opinion, one of the most catchy Hertz-Schrittmacher releases :-o

Artist : Sickdoll 

Label : Hertz-Schrittmacher 

untitled / LP

After his debut 7" "Sohn Geht Ab!" in 2006 here is the full-length album of Sickdoll from Germany. He delivers us a kind of contemporary minimal electro with an obvious 80’s Neue Deutsche Welle and synthpop feeling. Excellent album to dance to with a clear link to the past. Comes in special sleeve. Check !

leidenschaft und produktion

17.99€

Artist : Das M 

Label : Hertz-Schrittmacher 

leidenschaft und produktion / LP

Das M is a solo project of a guy calling himself Sinusforscher and coming from Austria. He released some cassettes only in the early 90’s. He produces a lovely mixture of analogue electro-pop and electro with German lyrics and makes use of some of the usual suspects of analogue synthesisers and drum machines. The songs are spacey, catchy, minimalistic with some having a strong reference to Kraftwerk, but you can clearly feel that he never cared much about success or fashions and simply recorded the music he likes. For all fans of pure analog sounds !

untitled

9.19€

Artist : Kassettenfachentstauber 

Label : Hertz-Schrittmacher 

untitled / 10"

Strange but pleasantly amusing new band exploring minimal bleep tunes with a very nice authenthic German 80's touch. Even an expert will not be able to tell this music was made now and not 25 years ago. Next to the three tracks on vinyl the packaging features a cassette tape with two more tracks. For the true freaks of that obscure sound a Must Have !

minimal scheissegal

9.79€

Artist : Rasputeen 

Label : Hertz-Schrittmacher 

minimal scheissegal / 7"

Rasputeen is a side project by well-known electronic music activist Philip Münch, known for his works in The Rorschach Garden or with Keen K. Rasputeen is like an out of control version of Rorschach Garden, not so melodic and just much weirder with lyrics that must be heaven-sent… Solid minimal electro with some similarity to DAF maybe. Limited to 300 copies !

Artist : Various 

Label : Hertz-Schrittmacher 

analoges russland - musik aus der zukunft / LP

Here’s a fantastic new compilation on Hertz-Schrittmacher, this time presenting contemporary minimal electro-pop bands from the Russian Federation only. There is no drop out on this record, all tracks are great, really ! While surely not everything is made on 100% analogue equipment here, the direction and sound is always right. The tracks are mostly very danceable, with, of course, lots of early 80’s atmospheres. Some of the bands present here were already known from the previous Doppelhertz compilation. Come with info-sheet and limited to 333 copies only. Get it, you won’t regret it...

abspielbare eintrittskarte für das kernkrach festival 2008 / 7"

7" originally released for visitors of the Kernkrach-Festival 2008. 2 songs made by the French legendary but still active Mr Moncollin (aka ADN' Ckrystall). Once again the man did great job here with cold minimal synth lines for a gloomy atmosphere. Limited to 175 copies...

ist das wirklich nötig ?

16.99€

Artist : Das M 

Label : Hertz-Schrittmacher 

ist das wirklich nötig ? / 10"

Excellent release by Das M. His first lp on Kernkrach featured new material but this 10" consists of tracks from the tapes the artist released himself in the early 90's in very limited editions. Of course it features the cult hit "Vergeude Nicht Deine Jahre" but this is not by far the best track on the record (although it is a very good one). Pieces like "Schneller Sein" and "Flohwalzer" are simply fantastic minimal electro-pop tracks with a touch of NDW and even as they are sounding happy they have a hint of melancholy all around them. A must have for fans of lo-fi diy electro pop. Be aware that the track “Vergeude Nicht Deine Jahre” is a bit affected by a little scratch all along the track, due to mispress on the whole stock (333 copies)... ;)

9.50€

Artist : Monster Apparat 

Label : Hertz-Schrittmacher 

untitled / 7"

Monster Apparat is the new synth "super group" from Sweden with members of Kord (with his excellent recent 7" on Djuring Phonogram) and Adolf Filter (no introduction needed I hope). The music is the perfect mix of these 2 acts : the excellent rhythms and melodies of Kord and the influence of moody touches, sounds and melodies by Adolf Filter. The result is this excellent 7" with two great dancefloor tunes. Something not to be missed !!!

schadstoffklasse grau

16.79€

Artist : Various 

Label : Hertz-Schrittmacher 

schadstoffklasse grau / LP

Truly an excellent compilation with only contemporary and mostly unknown new acts. Deep & hypnotic minimal electronics... Even spacey and almost psychedelic at times. The best thing about this record is that it does not aim at cheap dancefloor fillers but goes for nice listening music. For the fans of minimal electronics in its pure and raw form, a must have ! One of the best Kernkrach sublabel releases so far. Limited to 333 copies. Don't sleep !

blümchen

9.49€

Artist : Gertrud Stein 

Label : Hertz-Schrittmacher 

blümchen / 7"

2 brand new songs from this fantastic musican from Switzerland. If you missed the 7" limited to 100 copies on Hertzschnitt, here is another chance to experience his crazy minimal electro-synth melodies in a pure German style.. Hand-numbered and stamped copies, selfmade artwork sleeve with insert, knife and "back-puck", design vinyl colour. Nice collector item ;)

untitled

10.90€

Artist : Bloodygrave & Die Lust! 

Label : Hertz-Schrittmacher 

untitled / 7"

Debut 7" ep by this German minimal electro act. 4 deep tracks to please the die hard fans of the genre but catchy enough to attract the attention of a broader audience. Also excellent packaging in the best Kernkrach tradition.. Excellent clear red vinyl ;)

doppelhertz vol. 2 / 2x12"

2nd edition of the 'Doppelhertz' compilations on Kernkrach's sublabel. 23 international contemporary artists ranging from classic minimal-electro to italo idm, from synth-pop to space synth anthems, from angst NDW to electroclash dancefloor fillers. Really nice ;)

Artist : Das M 

Label : Hertz-Schrittmacher 

vom tanzboden in den narrenturm / 12"

A compilation of tape recordings dated 1994-1995, inspired by Der Plan and Andreas Dorau. The artist himself describes this phase of his musical work as "Neue Deutsche Niedlichkeit" ("New German Cuteness"), which accounts very well for the naive charm and playfulness in both themes and music. Still, Das M's songwriting and wonderful sense for catchy melodies are here just as effective as on his other albums, and his style remains quite unmistakable. So, don't miss it!

draußen

16.29€

Artist : Soundlego 

Label : Hertz-Schrittmacher 

draußen / LP

There's not much information out there about Soundlego, but their music more than speaks for itself as touches of italo, coldwave and electro get distilled down into bright and brash constructs brimming with playful creativity. At times it gets feisty and downright bonkers (see the rollercoaster ride of Philly strings and liquid funk "Die Grosse Ruhe"), and in other places a more house influenced focus comes into play (as on the eminently bouncy "Meisterstucke"). Through the myriad styles touched upon by Soundlego, there is undoubtedly something to inspire any electronic music-attuned head on 'Draußen'. Recorded and sampled between 2004-2014. Limited to 300 hand-numbered copies on colored 180gr vinyl. Includes 6 high quality prints in 15x15cm..

Wonderfull catchy minimal synth-wave gem with slight hints of Kraftwerk on Hertz-Schrittmacher. The LP comes in a rich orange vinyl and is limited to 300 hand-numbered copies. Grab it while you can !!

untitled

17.29€

Artist : Discodeath 

Label : Hertz-Schrittmacher 

untitled / LP

Brand new minimal-wave in a pure old-school style that sounds really fresh. Didscodeath come from Italy and remind us a mixture of the influential Italian electro bands from the 80's, such as Neon, Pankow and Limbo. Very dirty in your ear but also very danceable. This LP saw the light thanks to the collaboration of Hertz-Schrittmacher & No Emb Blanc labels. Green transparent vinyl limited to 300 copies ;)

heim und garten

16.99€

Artist : Mangelexemplar 

Label : Hertz-Schrittmacher 

heim und garten / LP

Synth-wave duo Mängelexemplar from Düsseldorf creates analogue and melodic new-wave sound in an early 80's style. This sophomore album 'Heim Und Garten' is even more dance-friendly in our opinion than their 1st album 'Freizeit Und Technik' from 2012. This is true synth music, magic & technic at the same time. Limited to 300 copies on coloured vinyl. Must-Have !

kolophonium

16.99€

Artist : Dada Pogrom 

Label : Hertz-Schrittmacher 

kolophonium / LP

First full length vinyl album by Dada Pogrom from Reykjavik (Iceland). Powerful & energetic minimal synth stuff. Classic in the way synths are used but rather modern in production. One of the few records in this style which can still interest us... Limited to 300 hand-numbered copies on 180gr icelandic turquoise vinyl. Big Tip!
