"Germany's freshest and most interesting record label" (The NME / UK)
Release: 24 January 2006
Cat#: Gomma 070 CD
This is the third MIX CD with music from the Gomma label. It includes underground club hits, remixes and unreleased songs from the last two years. New tracks by Gomma acts Headman, WhoMadeWho and Munk and (vocal & remix) contributions by friends of the label like The Rapture, DJ Chloe, Midnight Mike, Berlin’s Dirt Crew and James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem). Most of it had so far been only released on vinyl, but it would be a shame to hide these little hits from the CD listeners.
The complilation shows the more „clubby“ side of the Gommalabel. It was mixed by the MUNK boys (Mathias Modica and Jonas Imbery) – the same two guys who released the much acclaimed APERITIVO album two years ago and are also the men behind the small, but always innovative german label. Along with Output, Tigersushi, Kitsune and DFA, Gomma is part of this new generation of companys who started to develop their very own new sound – somewhere in between disco, electronic and post rock.

Kick Out The Chairs! was the first single of MUNK’s debut album Aperitivo and came out in October 2004. It features the vocals of James Murphy and Nancy Whang of New York’s DFA. Here you get a very Old school funk version of the track – played by new Gomma band WHOMADEWHO from Kopenhagen.
On the flipside there is a dance edit of B.F., also a track from the album. Made by The Glimmers from Belgium – who already had a quite intensive connection to the Munk guys in the last years: they invited them several times to their partys in Ghent, djed them self a few times at partys in Munich and at the recent Gomma/Lodown party in Berlin. They liked the B.F. track and so Gomma asked them to do an own version.
