On occasion of 15 years of Staubgold in 2013, French dj and musician Sylvain Garcia aka Le K presents the latest entry in the acclaimed “Plays Staubgold” series. After Peter Grummich’s ‘Dinner Music For Clubbers’ (2008), Alec Empire’s ‘Rauschgold’ (2009), label owner Markus Detmer’s ‘100 Jahre Einsamkeit’ (2010) and the Gebrüder Teichmann’s “Kraut und Rüben” (2011), it’s now Le K from Perpignan who put his hands on the Staubgold label back catalogue in order to produce the fifth volume in this on-going series of dj mix cds.
On the beautifully crafted ‘Le Petit Bonheur’ Sylvain Garcia mixes the finest moments in 15 years of Staubgold to a challenging and totally genre-crossing whole which leads to musical territories yet unknown to their listeners.
Staubgold’s roster can boast internationally known names like The Flying Lizards, Faust, To Rococo Rot, Kammerflimmer Kollektief, Ekkehard Ehlers, Leafcutter John, Patrick Vian and the 49 Americans. In 2003, the label shifted its base from Cologne to Berlin and moved further to Perpignan in France in 2011. Thus “Le Petit Bonheur” is the first entry in the “Plays Staubgold” series which was entirely created in Perpignan. The front cover image was taken by Perpignan-based photographer Alexandre Cappi at the city’s number one live venue and record shop, l’Ubu / Music Action.
