German producer Map.ache, real name Jan Barich, is set to release his second album. Earlier this week, Giegling’s web store was updated with represses of Vril’s most recent ‘Haus‘ EP, ATEQ’s ‘Sig‘ EP, and Kettenkarussell’s ‘Easy Listening‘ LP as well as Map.ache’s forthcoming album.
It has been six years since Map.ache released his gorgeous debut album ‘Ulfo‘ on his own imprint KANN, which he runs in conjunction with Sevensol (Alex Neuschulz) and Bender (Dennis Knoof). Inspired by the death of his father and the birth of his son, ‘Vom Ende bis zum Anfang‘ is an emotional response featuring 12 new tracks spread across three slabs of vinyl with an appropriately sentimental photo on the cover to match the bittersweet, euphoric mood.
The hotly anticipated project notably kicks off with the long sought-after club anthem “Seis,” which was played at recent Giegling events and at the Georgian Parliament protests earlier this year. “Dream / Awake,” released as a music video on August 1st, refracts the influence of Chicago’s early 2000s post-rock scene with a Map.ache twist.
‘Vom Ende bis zum Anfang’ LP is available to order direct from Giegling.
