The fourth Biotop Label release introduces an amazingly talented artist called Nanna. Nanna loves „Wassa“ (Berlin-slang for water) and she likes to do „Arschbombe“ from the „Rheinbrücke, oder wohin auch immer…“! With the first female contribution the Biotop-crew takes the next step in the direction of experimental and open-minded electronic music.
There is always an inspiration, a motivation and a story behind outstanding music. After a hard party-night some people went to Patrick Zigon’s Traumraum studio – including Nanna and a truly gifted guitar player called Stefano. The two entered the vocal-booth, and the magic promptly began. That night and morning, the guys recorded almost an entire improvised album.
Patrick Zigon took vocals and guitar-parts of this recording-session, and reworked them into a driving techy track. For another remix he invited Berlin-Buddy Haito Göpfrich. His version is more reduced, with less vocals and more FX. The third laid-back and emotional rework emerged with Florence from the beautiful island Réunion and her heavenly french vocals.

In just over two years, Dansor’s Comport Records has gone from being just another label in a bulging market place to one of its home country’s most consistent, eclectic and underrated imprints. And a listen to their ‘Forget Me Not’ series – a retrospective, 10-track affair that captures a raft of the label’s best moments – has plenty to do with this.
So, in spite of the fact that it’s brimming with old hands and newcomers, the package, (produced with the WMC in mind), is a heavyweight release that’s glowing with everything from simple to complex delights.
Haito Goepfrich’s ‘Can’t Change the World’ remix of Spennu’s “People Just Don’t Care” is arguably the record that encapsulates all that’s great about Comport’s ability to churn out stylish house music. Elegant, delicate, catchy and an undoubted winner on the dance floor, it takes no prisoners in the best possible way, and closes matters amongst an onslaught of trippy, deep, hallowed goodness. Further remixes from Soundbalance, Dansor and Size amongst others are also brimming with astute colours.
