The Black Dog’s first Darkhaus EP marks the next pleasant left turn for Ostgut Ton sub-label Unterton.
The sister label of Berghain’s in-house imprint Ostgut Ton has just announced details of its third release, from unheralded duo Manhooker.
Until now, the Tuff City Kid pairing of Philip Lauer and Gerd Janson has proved to be an intriguing prospect restricted to the realm of remix commissions. Lauer has of course been musically operating for over a decade, from early releases on Real Soon and the now defunct Kompakt offshoot Punkt, before coming to prominence as part of Arto Mwambe. Most recently, Lauer delivered his debut solo album Phillips, for Janson’s Running Back imprint, which risen into one of the most dependable outlets for off – centre house.
Gerd Janson and Phillip Lauer will release their first original material as Tuff City Kids with the second 12″ on Unterton, the recently established sub label of Ostgut Ton.
