Label: Running Back
Product Type: 12-INCH SINGLE

Part 1 of the 2x12" version featuring tracks by Blue Moderne, Modern Romance, Simphonia, Answering Service, Wired, Temper, Steve Arrington, and Executive. Deluxe gatefold sleeve. Running Back presents a history revealing reissue/ compilation project centering around the legendary Front Club in Hamburg, Germany that existed from the '80s-late 90´s - a leading club in terms of music selection, mixing technique, rave culture - in a very important period of time. Eponymous Resident DJs Klaus Stockhausen and the later on globally known Boris Dlugosch take a close look back at that time, guiding you through the history, the early beginnings and absolute key moments on (house music) club culture. 37 (!) legendary tracks - many of which have not been on sale forever - that mark the masterclass sound of that Era and could be an essential start or - end - point to any great collection. In addition, the stunning mixing brings back the "Front" itself and must be heard by old and new fans all over. "Why a Front mix and compilation 21 years after the club closed it's doors? On the one hand, because it's story hasn't been told yet and it's worth telling. On the other, German clubs like Robert Johnson or Berghain - as divergent as they are - both resemble Front's spirit, diversity and musical open mindedness. Spread over a double-CD and two compilation LPs that are mainly chronological, Klaus Stockhausen and Boris Dlugosch picked and mixed some of the club's most cherished records and sweetest moments. This is the sound of Front." -Gerd Janson
