Strukturbruch is a brain child of Alexdee and LXC to promote beats, bass and noises inbetween the scenes and nights of Drum'n'Bass and Breakcore in and around Leipzig and east Germoany. There were like two handful of concerts and parties in off locations, squats and cinemas around 2000-2004 (with sporadic follow-ups done 2008ish). It came down organically to use that name for the LXC vinyl debut vinyl on Phantomnoise in 2002 (including Corebreaker, Eko, Structure Break and 4 locked groove loops) and so to pretend this could be the soundtrack to such a night. Still playing LXC live and trying to produce tracks on the deadly MPC & Virus combination, these tracks were all fused together from nasty basslines wrapped within bold jungle breaks and spiced up with distortion and noise. This collection here now expands the former Stukturbruch EP to an actual LP with unknown early versions, the live remixes and found extras and is round up by some well weird live recordings of them Strukturbruch founders themselves. Ace times, we are really grateful we could run things like these!

Corebreaker was heavily sampling Code Breaker's drums and is said to be the first and last LXC tune which is rolling, uh. Corebreaker One is a very early version which was recorded exclusively for a dubplate that was given to Dylan himself when he played around here (think at Muna or Kassablanca Jena), without any reply though. The so-called remix is pretty much a new piece, ruffly using the same bass sound, just meant to hit hard on concrete jungle floors. The B part seems to be heavily influenced by Let The Bass Kick.
Eko pretty much built itself around the portamento and wobble bassline thing out of the Virus A, following with a strong Techstep and Therapy influence. The Six Million Ways To Die sample was added at the very last mixing session for the vinyl cut for the EP on Phantomnoise, hence you won't find it on the early dubplate version whoms bass was a bit higher and the overall sound is even a bit more exxagerated. Surely been super nervous and over-dedicated so it all turned out into way too long track lengths. A bit more punkrock whatever attitude came along playing out Eko's remix in later live situations.
When Something J of Digitalworldnet did the legendary Rave Is Back (respectively Rave Is Over) sticker series, it became an instant inspiration for sampling cheesy nineties stabs into what became the Phantomnoise 010 record with the two Rave Is Back (Again) bits on. Hilarious back then, but Alexdee loved them and soundwise they stand the time and will still be played to weirdo jungle audiences today.
Etatron was a tune request by DJ Tevatron from Leipzig and Betatron was the tune's early demo captured from cassette tape. Assuming it was pretty surely asked to be some kind of generic roller or banger, this idea was missed with ease. Despite this wasn't anyhow planned to be released along Strukturbruch or Phantomnoise back then, it's got strong roots in the old liveact and came along in the same era, sound pallette wise and technically as well, so definately worth a mention here.
After the debut EP and short before the Rave signing, there was the honourable possibility of remixing Alexdee's Rush for a 7inch split with nothing less than a pounding amen smashing remix by noone else than Society Suckers - that kind of competition that you can only loose. At least a piece of personal phone voice of the Phantomnoise head honcho found its cheeky way onto these legendary grooves.
Why not add a weird third track into the Strukturbruch EP they said and so, the distortion mosh fun piece Structure Break was done in a few minutes, pushing these gain stages into dark red again. These techniques were helpful when a live request for a special play with Alexdee came up.
The final three bonus bits by AXD vs LXC weren't actually recorded at a Strukturbruch night, but a small affiliated decent noise concert series named Asshole Like Music run by IR of Complication#27 and friends at Zoro Leipzig. Exclusively done for this one moment, it pretty much shows off what has been our (non)musical mindset back then.

What a ride, what a mad era. Such freedom, well wicked experiences and great people all around. Thanks to each and everyone involved in our early Fakecore days; all the Alexanders, Marys, Olivers, Felixes, Manjas and all the gone as well as all the still heart-beating hugcore bassbears, you know who you are! Structures are there to be broken, blesshuhn!
