Dopplereffekt 'Gesamtkunswerk' repressed

According to Fact Mag Dopplereffekt's Gesamtkunswerk has been yet again repressed. Some of these tracks are now 13 to 15 years old but yet it all still sounds so fresh that demand for this album will never cease! According to Discogs there are at least 12 editions of the record available. According to their list there is even a Bulgarian cassette version which was licensed from Gigolo back in 1999 by Wizard, have pictures of it here for you. I mentioned before that I have an original cassette version of Neptune's Lair from Poland, now that is rare! For the record, here's some of the details Fact Mag give this time round,
'Originally released by International Deejay Gigolos in 1999, Gesamtkunstwerk compiled hard-to-find tracks from the four singles and EPs self-released by Dopplereffekt through their own Dataphysix Engineering imprint between ‘95 and ‘97. The album was then licensed by Cone Records for a fresh vinyl and CD release (with tweaked artwork) via their Classic Cuts offshoot in 2007. This edition has been out of print for a while, but has now been re-pressed, and is available at regular price on both CD and 2×12″ LP.'

New Zerkalo 12" +

The new Zerkalo 12", 'Experiment Zero', is out in a few short weeks on Frustrated Funk. It is now listed on the Clone website with samples of all three tracks. They are 'Invisible', 'Last Meeting' and 'Experiment Zero'. It is said to come in a limited silk screen edition. Clone also have a page at SoundCloud with some previously released full length Zerkalo tracks to listen to and a bunch of other great stuff.
Staying with Victoria Lukas, I very randomly and unexpectedly came across a whole new solo project of hers called vita. Since January of this year it has a MySpace site and there are currently four minimally produced and ghostly beautiful tracks there for you to discover. Whatever she does is always done with taste. Influences are listed as life. Check it out and become her friend. http://www.myspace.com/victorialkas

The Drexciyan legacy truly lives on with a new YouTube group devoted to their and Heinrich Mueller's videos plus there was a 'Jackmaster & Jonge' Drexciya Special broadcast on 02/03/10 which can be still watched at USTREAM.

Its been pointed out to me that there is a new look Rephlex page where you can now listen to all of the tracks on their available releases before you make your purchase. This includes the last Dopplereffekt and Arpanet albums.

You can listen to the entire infamous Dopplereffekt show at The Roxy in Los Angeles from 20/5/09 at Open Source Audio. There is a lot of testosterone in that audience! At one point I’m sure I could hear some guy say to his buddy, “Man, there is nothing I like about this show.” To which his friend says, “You could leave.”

Finally does anyone have any info on a Dopplereffekt show that happened 9 years ago! The below link threw up this bit of information in an interesting email from Alex Lugo of Ultraydne. Wonder how they presented it back in the day(although this was already post Kim Karli), any pictures or accounts out there?
