Notes

There are two different versions each of “Interlude”, “Darkspirit Cut”, “Cut 06”, “Pulsierendes Leben” and “Planet Uterus”; some combination of either mixes are pressed onto the vinyl, creating unique listening experiences. Which versions of the songs one will get on their copy of the vinyl is not marked in any way on the packaging, but does confirm Giegling's cryptic press release for the album: "you will never have everything."

Best decision of 2016 to be stupid enough to spend 100 Euros on this without knowing anything about the release. Trust!

I discovered this a while ago, it's been annoying me since, so I'm just going to write some thoughts here:

The entire beat from "C1. Desire" was taken straight from Marcel Dettmann's "Lattice." No creative sampling or chopping - it's pasted into the track verbatim. It's a nice edit, I like it purely from a listening perspective, but come on... if you're going to commercially release something that takes from another track so exactly and blatantly, give the proper credits. If I was a producer and some other "anonymous" producer did this to my track, something I'd imagine takes a considerable amount of time and emotional investment, I'd feel violated.

I don't know what the real case was on the backend, but I know from a label perspective it's easier to just release it and keep it under the radar and hope for the best, rather than try to clear it properly (if even possible). But that kind of mentality towards art feels highly insidious to me. From a production standpoint I think it's lazy. If he were serious, would it really take that long to recreate a reverb'd kick-bass line like the one he took from "Lattice"? I don't think so. Makes me wonder what else POD has ripped.

It's just a bizarre scenario to me. This fact has been known for a while now, yet nobody seems to talk about it or seems to openly care that much about it, but I just don't think I could be alone on this. I like listening to PoD's edit ("Desire") but my enjoyment of the track has been tainted by these facts. All this, on top of the absurdly inflated Discogs prices, all the fanboys, the "mysterious (non)image", it's just a bit much.

If there's some part of the story I'm completely missing, or if anyone knows some affiliation between Dettmann and POD I don't know about, please correct/tell me.

peace

Sadly this is the only POD release that's missing from my collection. :(

I played through this once or twice after I first received it and then put it on the shelf, to be forgotten. Recently I was making a little bedroom mix and brought it back out, gave it another whirl... It's a brilliant compilation, and flows so well from start to finish. Only reservation I have is that some of the pressings aren't of great quality, there is some static and some skips on at least 1 or 2 of the records, which is very disappointing. I give "8" no less than an A-. Happy I own it.

"Beyond that, personally it is both a caring embrace as it is a testament to a ten-year-long chapter at Giegling, that, with all I'm doing, had been coming to an end for me"

Cant seem to find the digital versions..were they taken down already? I checked (german) itunes and amazon. I have the vinyl but was looking forward to maybe get a few of the "different versions" of these tunes, especially the 19 minutes Pulsierendes Leben and the more subtle version of Cut06. Also, if someone wants to split up his box and sell me those two tracks, send me a pm :-)

The vocal sample in "Once With A Smile" comes from the untitled closing track of Current 93's album Imperium.
