Packed with some special cuts of electronic music, we celebrate release No. 50 with 12 exclusive
tracks from old and new faces. Feeling touched by the ar0sts, each one spends insights to their musical
heart and creative mind, providing an excep0onal flavor that represent the full spectrum of the label. The golden thread connects beautiful weirdness with a unique sense for humor in music, which is stuffed in highly danceable tunes.
KARAAT’s „Takeover“ is the perfect entry for an adventurous trip; a smooth bass interrupted by a
lovely monsterous sound leaves no doubt. EDGAR PENG unfolds his jewel called „Trilla“, high-class
subtleness with deep, arpy & vibrant sounds. Lazerslut MIRO PAJIC at his best by pairing rhythmic
porn; clean but dirty sounds with the affec0on for a freakin’ vibe. A warm welcome for THOMAS
KLIPPS and his brilliant work „Second Fault“ with its pa0ent build-up awai0ng peaky rave moments!
Label head BEE LINCOLN lets out the bass giant „Grip“ and turns over for amazing ar0st friends like
SOUL DATA / TRIPTAH. „Clues“ is a raw and acid-/synth’ party animal, which shows how fluidly genres
can melt on this selection.
2nd label debut is FELIX HEERMANN, a creative rave and music mind! „Baam FM“ has been a napping
tune on his hard disk, but now this joyful piece with a touch of Stammheim Kassel sounds brings
pleasure to each after- & überhour. Lauter boy MAXIMILLION’s „Capital Growth“ is a solid dance floor
tune with abnormal fresh- & tightness! DIDIER DLB completes the Turmspringer duo and comes with
„Acid Cella“, a fat analogue sounding work straight outta’ his lab. South German youngster DARIO is
on for a „Dance“ and reaches it without compromises! Warm basses and melodic sounds in PEPE
MATEOS´ „Bajo Fondo” are not less than a fulfilled aesthetic experience. Last but not least COCO joins
the circle and releases his first official track „Die Tuer“, a genius musical work with crispy live recorded
sounds. Thereby it literally closes the door of the „NUMBER FIFTY” compilation.
Like marking an era and ramming a stake into the ground, Bee Lincoln starts the year 2020, or moreover finishes the past decade, with a handsome foursome 25th release of ‚as usual.music’. As a result of a grinded out time in between foggy dancefloors and studio niff, approaching for definition while keeping it versatile, the „Foursome EP“ shines fresher than ever and developed into an unexpected but spontaneously placed statement at the right time. At this point we’d like to shout out a big ‚Thank you! ‚ to everyone who supported us in any way, danced and laughed, debated and babbled, or even put some stones in our way, letting us stumble but made us learn and grow by fails. A special thanks to all concerned artists who make ‚as usual’ what it sounds and feels like. Thank you, Paradise-Distribution for backing us up as such a strong partner, and Miro Pajic for advicing at any time and evolving the label’s color of sound by professional mastering on such a high level. We can’t wait for another year of exciting new adventures, implicating the abandoned love for music.
Back for this release, we discover the „Foursome EP“ as a self-contained 4-track-package with a huge thirst for club floors and urge to move. All tunes having creaky basslines in diverse forms as a mandatory element. A crispy drive accompanies the dirty and wild attitude. „Wolfsbite“ is road-tested since long time and ready for escaping silence. „Zen Fire“ is a mad chicken but knows clearly which side of the bread is buttered – that mustardy basstard. A scientific approach comes along with „Atoms“ and proves ecological rocket power with an intergalactic groove. Every end has a beginning, so „Striving“ is the ignition spark of these tracks and closes the EP allegorically as an immortal matter of the ongoing evolution of music and everything.
So long – Arrivederci!

Time has come to present an EP straight from the ‚as usual.’-lab. Labelhead Bee Lincoln is back with a strong pack of versatile deeply movin’ and crisp tunes. While going deep into the matter, the output becomes more fruitful and effective. The „Like A Panda EP“ comes riddled with a remix by Siopis. Former known as Silversurfer, he has an endless list of groundbreaking releases in the last two decades on labels like Crosstown Rebels, Bpitch Control, Get Physical and Suruba X, just to name a few. Let’s dive into this extraordinary release.
Title track „Like A Panda“ is a special tune with an ever-evolving sequence that acts like a chameleon, or maybe like a panda. Get into this trip with a wide bassline and rollin’ percussions before the worm starts winding. An exceptional ride leads through modulated bleeps to nasty bloops and settles deep in the mind. Siopis strips back to the basics in his remix and brings off the essence of the rhythm by keeping it going neraly all the way. Adding some voice-shatterings in the background and a scenic sphere the sophisticated, dramatical part is introduced. Along the lines of ‚less is more’ this track is a timeless piece of music art.
„Back“ is a wild and and exciting floorshifter. Reduced on a smart rhythm and stuttering bass, it generates an incredible groove and quirks around with reversed and distorted snapshots. Last track „Baser“ queues up and sounds enormously crisp. The diversity of a shimmering sequence and a kinky acid line, get united like ying & yang and flow like a balanced bird-flight into the crowd.
