In early 1993 Christopher Just, artist and record dealer, and party organizer Peter Votava met amidst the emerging Austrian Techno scene. Under the moniker Ilsa Gold
they soon published their first EPs "I" and "II" containing early Rave classics such as "Up" or "Silke" which promoted them to the Frontpage Magazine
's charts' top. This most remarkable Austrian Techno act gained attention due to the unusual sampling of people like Peter Cornelius
or Karel Gott
combined with harsh Techno and Hardcore music that never lacked of musical skills or wit. Sharp, self-deprecating humour criticising the Rave scene's and some of its supporters' squalidness (keyword: drug abuse), the foundation of their own label, the establishment of legendary Ilsa Gold
parties and last but not least their unconventional presentation that even led to the formation of the persiflage-band Sons Of Ilsa
were only a few of Ilsa Gold
's missions before they officially split up in 1996.
