Rare Trip Hop sources from the 70’s and 80’s. Rough, eerie and mad sounds being still ahead of time! Placebo "Balek” is an all time classic of dozens of Rare Groove, Electro Funk and Trip Hop DJs, Michael Bundt ’s " The Brain Of Oskar Panizza ” is one of DJ Hell’s favourites. Believe it or not, just listen!

A1) Placebo „Balek“ (4:19)
Tuff! Dope beats and deep heavy future-sound vibes from 1973!!!!!! Deep funky atmospheric jam made by keyboard-wizard and moog-jazz-player Marc Moulin. The original single of „Balek“ or LP fetches more than 100 Pound/St. in the rare groove circles!)

A2) Alberto Baldan Bembo „Nitrogen“ (4:20)
Light-fusion-funk-jazz compared to new drum & bass or trip-jazz releases. This is from 1981 but sounds like somethin’ from 1996! Nitro!

B1) Michael Bundt „The Brain Of Oskar Panizza“ (9:43)
Oh! This is a track ahead of all times. Recorded in Germany 1978, but it sounds like The Ballistic Brothers and Josh Wink meets German progressive Krautjazz! This is a track from the Album called „Just Cosmic Kid Has Landed“! Exactly! You can also call him Michael Blunt, haha! This is a must for Techno- and TripHop-DJs, who thought everything starts in the middle of the 80ties. Mad Shit!
Compost has remastered the track – so it sounds better than the original LP-version!

B2) Jan Jankeje „South Indian Line“ (2:29)
Downbeat breakbeat-jazz sampled by Tricky and others. Strange!
