Maschinenbau was a label run by DJ Scud from Ambush and Nomex from Adverse which released only two 7”s in 1997/98. The first, Eurostar/Piling Machine, was limited to just 300 copies. It combined psychogeographical exploration and field recordings with Amiga-produced non-conformist breakcore and noise-abuse, while the second one, Total Destruction, became a classic of breakcore / noise crossover with several appearances on compilations such as Collision Course on PIAS (compiled by Kevin Martin, aka The Bug), but nevertheless fell into relative obscurity - like most of the great early breakcore - during the following decade.
Twenty years after the original 7”s, Praxis is proudly releasing a 12” with all four original tracks at the end of September 2018 with the catalogue number Praxis 56.

5 pounds for 61 tracks weighing 2 tons each. That's 4 dozens and a baker's for a pop apiece of 4 for the floors from 60 to 180 BPM. So instead of wasting time trying to do this simple math, just go ahead and buy it already, cause chances are 100% you'll have a new favorite you never knew you'd have, thanks to the amount of styles and genres it covers. pC
