It’s fitting that while we at XLR8R have just released the Berlin Issue, a lot of great music from Germany is heading Stateside. Musick To Play In The Club from Shitkatapult is one such release, and the twelve track sampler is tangible evidence as to why we’d want to dedicate an entire issue to the Germans. A collection of the label’s first 11 releases from the Shitkatapult Musick 12″ series, it starts hard and rarely lets up as it morphs from gritty, broken 4/4 beats to darker, heaver tracks meant to fill the dancefloors. T. Raumschmiere, DJ Flush, Peter Grummich (pictured), and others star in this compilation. There is also an mp3 DJ mix of the tracks, an added bonus for the iPod.
