5 Picks with Gudrun Gut


24 Jun 2010, 11:33

Her recent team-up with AGF has once again brought Gudrun Gut to mind as the legendary doyenne of Germany's experimental music scene. Some thirty years ago Gut was part of an early incarnation of Einstürzende Neubauten and shortly after founded her all-girl new wave group Malaria!, a band whose influence has lasted until this day, with Chicks on Speed turning the Malaria! song Kaltes Klares Wasser' into a top-ten hit in 2001.

Over her entire career Gudrun Gut has been on the look-out for new music styles, famously collaborating with artists like Blixa Bargeld, Klaus Schulze (as part of Din A Testbild), Anita Lane, and founding the open collaboration platform Ocean Club, whose members include Thomas Fehlmann, Sun Electric, Daniel Meteo and Chica Paula.

Since 1997 Gut further runs the productive Monika Enterprise label, successfully promoting a mainly female roster of artists, including Barbara Morgenstern, Masha Qrella and Cobra Killer.

Most recently Gudrun Gut has teamed up with Antye Greie a.k.a. AGF as Greie Gut Fraktion. Together with the Finnish producer, known for her collaborations with Vladislav Delay and productions for BPitch and Ellen Allien, Gut has recorded the album 'Baustelle', a striking collection of minimalistic electronica songs, remixed byAlva Noto and Wolfgang Voigt on the accompanying single, 'Stadt Mixe'.

For zero" Gudrun Gut has picked five favourites she currently holds dear to her heart.
