180g vinyl. For over two decades now, Martin Maischein has dedicated himself to all things adventurous on labels such as Editions Mego, Force Inc.

or Position Chrome. In 2017, Maischein released "Yogascum" as a small-run cassette release on Hospital Productions under his Goner moniker.

"Yogascum" is now re-released on vinyl. Having received a grant by the Musicboard Berlin, he developed an audio-visual show around the three tracks at the core of »Yogascum«, all of which feature instruments and sounds previously unheard in his work.

Cellist UnterLala weaves her signature screeches into the pulsating drones of »YS- 1« and »YS-3«, zK member Mark Godwin on »YS-2« injects the subtle influence of a band whose records he has been working on as a mastering engineer, Coil.

While the title of »Yogascum« is a tongue-in-cheek riff on one of Maischein's favourite pastimes, it can indeed be taken at face value: The newest of the three core pieces, »YS-1«, is in fact meant to support a slow and focused breathing rhythm.

Built around UnterLala's evocative sustained notes, it harkens back to the cultural origins of drone music.

While »YS-2« is based on a elegiac industrial rhythm, »YS-3« sees UnterLala and Maischein opting for a more abrasive approach.

»Endtitle«, the credit music for the audio-visual show built around the three compositions, comes as a wake-up call.

It also serves as a firm reminder that Maischein hasn't forgotten about his own roots in IDM-tinged electronica.
