First compilation of tracks that was issued by Germany's Thomas Brinkmann, original released in 2000. This CD compiled many of the legendary Ernst 12" series, partly with new mixes and versions. That series of classic late 90s orange sleeved/labeled 12"'s, featured all German-ish female names for tracks (aka Anna/Beate, Clara/Doris, Erika/Frauke, Gisela/Heidi, Inge/Jutta, Monika/Nicola, Petra/Olga, Susi/Trixi, Ulla/Vera, Wilma/Xenia, Yvette/Zora). Ultra-minimal, cutting, Brinkmann-esque. Some of the most riveting electronic music of the last decade and self-defining. With one bonus previously unreleased track.

By visiting Lagos in 1983, Tokyo in 1999, 2000 and 2001, Bangkok several times between 1986 and 2002 and Mexico City in 2002 and 2003, CM von Hausswolff came, as thousands of other people, to the conclusion that something is running amok. An uncontrollable avalanche consisting of the construction of houses, streets and in-between spaces develops in large cities as independent "anything can happen"- status.
