Freude Am Tanzen has put together a compilation in celebration of their 50th release! Aptly titled “5zig”, it comes on CD or DO LP in addition to two 12″ singles. Part 2 of the Echocord Jubilee sampler is available now as Echocord also reaches their 50th pressing!

A portion of Conrad Schnitzler’s discography is now in stores on m=minimal titled “Ballet Statique”. Lawrence continues to do what he does best and delivers another deep house EP to Mule Electronic. Four tracks from Cyclo’s recent album have been pressed to vinyl, and out now on Raster Noton.

Ata, the man behind Live At Robert Johnson mixes the 7th edition of their “Live At Robert Johnson” series and is definitely one for the collection. Also available is a three track vinyl extraction containing “Raum” by Grauzone and “Flucht” by Zwischenfall with a remix by Ata.

“My Hidden Playground” part 2 is out now on Acker Records, and oOoOO is back once again on Tri Angle. After the vinyl sold out in a matter of minutes, oOoOO is now on mini-CD for those who missed it before!

Record Store Day is coming up and we are participating! We will be offering a very special, very limited bundle from WhoMadeWho, 20% off thousands of titles, and more. Read all about it here. We have just reported that John Tejada will join Kompakt! Tejada is now preparing “Parabolas”, his debut album for KOMPAKT which will be available on June 20th, 2011. The first single release “Unstable Condition” will hit stores on May 2nd.

Also, Kenneth Christiansen compiled a mix for Electronic Beats as a taster for the Echocord Jubilee compilation which is out today. Download that here while you listen to the album and for other recent news, click here. Have a great weekend.
