Jens-Uwe Beyer, a key figure in Cologne's music scene unveils the conceptual "Rainbow Books" series on Magazine with the first entry. The series will consist of the red, yellow, orange, white, blue, beige, green, purple and scarlet books. Starting with "Red Book", Magazine 8 is a live mixed mantra for home and dancefloor meditation, a DJ tool as well as an avantgardistic liturgy. With a running time of over an hour, it might also be 2012's longest club track, but it still manages to never sound dull... which is quite a feat in itself. Besides the standard CD EP, Kompakt.fm also offers a special edition: limited to 50 copies, it's only available at our store and comes with the CD mounted in a handmade 12" sleeve, including a high-quality art print. An instant classic, 'nuff said.
