19.12.07 LAST UPDATE
This is probably my last update of this site. I started all about nearly 10 years ago and now it´s time for something new. I just implemented a redirect to the new COGNITIVE*DEFECT site but this old site is still available. Withing the next weeks/months the new site will be finished. I think you should know when it´s time to end something. We still have a couple of backstocks left, please don´t hesitate to get some of the last copies at the Vinylkingz Mailorder. Shops/distros can ask for wholesale prices by writing an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. I have to thank all you guys again for your support and helping us guys to realize our dream of a indie-label. Take care and see you on the new site... xndl. P.S. the OFFBEATERS are still alive and will get a new home at the Cognitive*Defect site...
27.11.07 XNDL IS WORKING ON TWO NEW RELEASES FOR 2008 ON COGNITIVE*DEFECT REC.
On the 4th of FEB 2008 XNDL will drop his first new album for 2008 called "bewusstlos". This album contains once again a mixture of Breaks, Downbeat, Illbient and Glitch and more electronical sounds. The 2nd release is called "roots" and contains strictly reggae/ragga influenced sounds from Dub to Dancehall. Definitely another musical site as we usually expect from him. You can listen to the first track on his Virb-Profile. It´s called "ghetto girl" and features Richie Spice.
03.10.07 SUBVERSIV*REC. RETIRES EARLY ON DECEMBER 2007
At the end of this year SUBVERSIV*REC. will close down it´s business. The reason for this decission is based on different factors. I just want to mention the most important ones. First of all most of our shops and even distributors went bankrupt the last 2 years and we have to rebuild our distribution-situation. We don´t have the time and energy to do that because Matt works fulltime besides the label & Vinylkingz and even me started a full-time-job a few months ago. The 2nd and more personal point was my declining interest in that kind of music and the wish to concentrate more on my own music in my spare time. Another point was the fact that i could not see any community or support/interest on the part of the listeners and even the artists anymore. A label should do more than releasing some records… i don´t want to blame some people but it´s not acceptable that you pay a lot of money and spend a lot of time for a release and some artists do not even mention that release in their discography or even one single sentence …
However… at the moment i´m working on the idea of a new label in 2008, more familiar and consisting of only a handful and mostly exclusive artists who want to be a part of the building progress and not only beeing released. The new label is called COGNITIVE*DEFECT and it is concentrated on more electronical sounds and even on the organisation of live-appearances/events. It will be smaller and not as semi-professional as SUBVERSIV*REC.
We just want to thank all of you guys for supporting us the last 5 years and wish you the best. We´re going to sell our backstocks the next months so watch out for special offers and get one of the last SUBVERSIV*REC. releases.
We hope to have the chance to continue our work with affiliated artists and friends in the future.

Well, it´s pretty quiet here these days. That´s because of the fact that i have tons of other things to do at the moment and unfortunately hardware-trouble with my computer again. That means the last few weeks i was not able to work properly on a lot of things like the Offbeats 3.1. Now it´s summer, i have to pass my last exams and my thesis and months like Juli/August quite difficult to release and so i think we should put that release out after the summer-break early September. Sorry guys, but we think it´s better to make a 100% release instead of a 75% because pressure of time. In case we can put it out before the summer break we let you know. I would suggest you to visit my blog to get the latest news [xndl].

A few, but very interesting new releases arrived at the Offbeat Mailorder: New DJ SCIENTIST 10", new AUDIO88 CD, BRENMAR & ELISSA 7" and the phantastic new MOLE CD.
For German customers only: Da die Post scheinbar keinen Bock hat, Platten zu verschicken, hat man geschickt das Päckchen-Format geändert.D.h., auch wenn man eine einzige Platte verschicken will,muss man das als Paket für 7€ machen. Das heisst für mich,dass sie mich mal können und in Zukunft nur noch mit Hermes verschickt wird.Nachdem man schon die Platte als Warensendung abgeschafft hat, wäre das eigentlich schon ein Grund für den Wechsel gewesen.Das heisst für EUCH... ALLE Lieferungen,sind in Zukunft versichert, ehemalige Päckchen kosten 4€ und Paket nun 6€ statt 7€.Die Lieferungen werden in Zukunft immer am MO und DO verschickt. Wer dennoch Versand per Post will, kann das natürlich haben.

31.12.05 XNDL´S ANNUAL RETROSPECTION 2005
2005 definitely sucked... We had a lot of problems with business suckers, (still) a lot of delays, a lot of trouble nobody wants and nobody has never known about, last but not least a lot of bad luck and i just want to say a big "fuck you" to 2005. I hope 2006 will be better... if not - fuck 2006 too... there´s a lack of everything but not a lack of time and backbone. I also hope the Shadowanimals LP & SOSO LP will be out on mid January.The stuff is still at the manufacturing plant and nothing happened the last weeks. The OFFBEATS 3 CD-version will be out on Feb before the vinyl-selection drops. I also want to thank all the people who still support SUBVERSIV*REC. We have a lot of awsome releases for 2006 like the new Gunporn album, Astronautalis album, a project with Brzowski & K-The-??? and a lot more stuff.. You are the reason why indipendent labels like us still exist...
16.12.05 SOSO & SHADOWANIMALS LP OUT ON JANUARY
Well what else can i say than "bad luck again". The masters of the two new releases were sent early enough but the manufacturer never got the them. That´s the official statement we got from them and that´s all we can say here. That´s the typical problem of small labels, their masters seems to get lost easier than the masters of a major label... exspecially during the peak hours before Christmas-holidays... Unfortunately the OFFBEATS 3 compilation will be delayed because of this too. It´s not possible for us to releases 4 records within 4 weeks.I hope you understand what´s going on... i´m sure you do.
15.12.05 OFFBEAT MAILORDER UPDATE
A bunch of new releases and re-stocks arrived at the Offbeat Mailorder... new Stacs Of Stamina LP, Brenmar EP, Brenmar & Elissa EP, Pilot Ballon , Saarpreme a.o. stuff. + special offers--- EVERY ORDER ABOUT 30€ gets a GUNPORN instrumentals CD for FREE...

01.11.05 THE OFFBEAT NETWORK / SUBVERSIV*REC. IS LOOKING FOR PROMOTERS
After 3 years of living in the cellar of the underground we think it´s time to see the sunlight...That´s why we´re looking for promoters - WORLDWIDE. We don´t have much money for shit like that but i´m sure we can work something out in return of your services. In other words, we need guys who helping us out with sending promos to radio-stations, magazines and other "important" people and we need guys who help us to make bookings for our artists and we need everyone who tells his local recodshop to buy our fucking records... If you´re interested (and really motivated to do that), just contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.Successful promoters can join the Offbeat Network and later the company we´re working on at the moment. Visions are neccessary and the first step of a long journey...
