Dub artist Prince Istari from Hamburg, Germany, will start his own label in April 2024.Released by sozialistischer-plattenbau in a limited edition of 200 copies.This is a record (2nd pressing).

As the title suggests, this album contains 8 tracks by Erik Satie that have been overdubbed. DL code included. Out of print.

Below is a commentary by the label.

"Little Prince Istari's earliest musical memory is of his mother beautifying the house by playing the piano. She would play the serene songs of Erik Satie over and over again, skipping school and basking in the sun. , a young Prince Istari was listening to this catchy, gentle song. In the first week of 2024, an old Prince Istari rediscovered himself and found a box containing his mother's old sheet music. I transferred it to my computer and started making a dub version.It became a tapestry.As my mother used to say, ``To weave the web, you must first spin it.'' The shape of each work determines its direction. Heavy dub gives way to a lighter heaviness here, before melting into pure piano music accompanied by synthesizers. But the last song is even older, dating back to when Prince Istari was still known as Istari Rastafahler. The ending features a distorted recording of Prince Istari's mother, Huberta, playing Satie's Gnossienne. Finally, she turns over the sheet music and the record can go back to the beginning.

At its core, this record defies the loudness wars. The originality of the compositions guides the dubbing within the tracks, giving each one a form that portrays its essence. "

The earliest musical memories of young Prince Istari are of his mother beautifying the home with her piano playing. She would play repeatedly the tranquil pieces of Erik Satie. Skipping school and sitting in the sun, young Prince would listen to these catchy, calm compositions. In the first week of 2024, the older Prince Istari rediscovered himself and found a box containing his mother's old sheet music. He transferred them to his computer and began spinning dub versions from them. It became a tapestry. As his mother used to say: "To weave a net, one must first spin." The form of the pieces dictated the direction each would take. The heavy dub transforms here into a light weightiness until it dissolves into a pure piano piece accompanied by a synthesizer. However, the last piece is much older, from the time when Prince was still known as Istari Lasterfahrer. The ending includes a distorted recording of Huberta, Prince's mother, playing a Gnossienne by Satie. At the end, she turns the sheet music, and the record can be turned back to the beginning.

In the essence of its material, this record rejects the Loudness War. The originality of the compositions guided the dub within their tracks, thereby imparting to each a form descriptive of its essence."
