German Synth Wave Underground 1981-1984. Two years have passed since the successful release of the first “Sowas von egal” compilation. “Sowas von egal” is a collaboration between the Hamburg record label Bureau B and the Hamburg party series Damaged Goods where they present rare, obscure synth & wave discs from the early 1980s which absolutely deserve to heard. It was clear from the outset that “Sowas von egal 2” would need to scale similar heights of excellence as its predecessor, featuring carefully selected, sought-after, danceable tunes. In contrast to the first volume, most of the acts here were only active in the early 1980s and have not released any records since then. The tape artists were particularly invested in the DIY ethic as is often apparent in their sound aesthetics and the unbridled energy which has lost none of its intensity today. Their art was seldom if ever tempered by commercial considerations or sales strategies. A year in the making: “Sowas von egal 2” is a worthy successor to part 1!
