Bad press, several pops and background noise. Beautiful music though

This clear vinyl edition is of poor quality. Brand new LP plays with "clicks" and "pops" as if it was scratched !

Seems to be badly pressed. There are some notable pops in some of the tracks.
The music is of course beautiful.

Born from the desire to reintroduce on the market an outstanding, yet surprisingly unknown work of the 1980s, this ORAL release is also the result of a dialogue with hypermedia researcher and artist Konrad Becker, which occurred during chance, yet fruitful meetings. Sometimes in the path of a music lover and record collector, a work will beckon you, imposing itself with its singularity, depth and timelessness. MONOTONPRODUKT 07, produced in 1982, is such a work.

The original MONOTON album, MONOTONPRODUKT 07 is so alive with the pulses that triggered many Electronicas to come, from Techno through Trance to Mego’s creeping static, you could make a case for Becker’s guruhood. Yet, for all its prescient washed out tones, threadbare textures and Minimalist rigour, it has the edge on much that followed. Adopting an imperious art stance towards mainstreams and margins alike, Becker cast a cold analytic eye over Electronica’s urfathers, picking up on Suicide’s jittertronic urgency, if not their melodrama, and DAF’s throbbing sequencers, but with the sex threat removed, which he patched into his own crackling circuits, hissing vistas and tumbling beatstreams.
The Wire 175, sept. 1998, 100 records that set the world on fire (when no one was listening)

MONOTON, MONOTONPRODUKT 07 27y++ (2009)
MONOTONPRODUKT 07 27y++ is, in agreement with its author Konrad Becker, more than a CD re-release of the original two vinyl records. It is instead an updated work, subjected to sound digitalisation to bring out sounds and effects that would have been impossible to achieve when it first came out – the bass has the intended amplitude while high frequencies truly rejuvenate the whole. The author is finally able to hear what he was hoping for back then but could not achieve.

Prompted by an anthropological approach and a historical updating operation, this new work could be perceived as a work developed over a period of 27 years, in full respect of Konrad Becker’s creative process. And so MONOTONPRODUKT 07 becomes MONOTONPRODUKT 07 27y++.

Remasters and reissues of this important electronic pioneer’s work came out recently. ORAL CD02 was the first re-release of MONTONPRODUKTS on ORAL. This reissue of the out of print CD02 has faced a new mastering in 2009 by John Sellekaers, Metarc, bringing to light more details and a wider sound.
After the widely acclaimed ORAL label’s reissues of Blau (1980), we continue a series of making these rare documents of electronic music available with previously unreleased material of the same period. In 2009, 8 lost tracks came out on ORAL. This CD contains MONOTON hard to find and unreleased tracks. It was also produced as two Limited Edition 10s : ORAL EP26, Four Lost Tracks and ORAL EP27, Ancient Futures. ORAL will complete this serie of reissue with the album MONOTONPRODUKT MCMLXXXIX. Remastered in 2009, the CD, MCMLXXXIX 20y++, contains two previously unreleased Mindmusic tracks from the same year that have been realized through scientific Brain Lab software.

This is the first re-release of Montonprodukts on ORAL. The second one is the number 02, the blau LP, rer-released June 2006, another must have for everyone interested in the history of electronic music.
