50 WEAPONS

Junglish-footwork flux by one of UK bass music's figureheads. Excellent sophomore album including collaborations with DJ Die, Sam Binga, MC DRS and Josefina. Boomkat wrote about Addison Groove's debut album "Transistor Rhythm" from March 2012: "Addison Groove, drawing on juke, electro, dubstep, ghetto-house and jeep-rocking hip-hop variants to create super-heavy bass music, leaves you with no alternative but to dance and/or bite your lower lip raw." The dancing and lip biting parts still count for his follow up "James Grieve", but the influences and music genres have slightly changed. There's a strong jungle influence present from beginning to end. "James Grieve" is also less raw and jackin' than the predecessor and seamlessly combines spacious, laid back and more rollin' tracks with a bunch of straight forward club bangers. While "Transistor Rhythm" was definitely Chicago inspired, "James Grieve" is pure Bristol through-and-through.

The tracklist contains some of the world´s biggest producers of electronic music including Moderat, Shed, Marcel Dettmann, DJ Friction, Robert Hood, Chris Liebing, Legowelt, Miles, Truncate, Benjamin Damage, Lee Gamble, Anstam, Siriusmo, Tale Of Us, Modeselektor and many more. At 50 Weapons we are aiming to have a slightly different focus each year. We want to keep it fresh and exciting for us and our followers. In 2012 we had a strong focus on album releases. Benjamin Damage & Doc Daneeka, Addison Groove, Phon.o, Shed, Anstam and our youngster Bambounou all released albums with us. On the downside, the label released less singles for Djs. This year, we still released 2 fantastic albums by Benjamin Damage and Cosmin TRG, but the main focus was on a strong series of DJ tailored singles. To spice it up a bit, we also did a series of remix singles. Something we normally wouldn’t do. Before we are shifting our focus back to artist albums again in 2014 (many strong ones are already lined up), we are releasing this very special compilation to close the first chapter on remix singles. 9 single releases plus 4 unreleased exclusives by Tale Of Us, Marcel Dettmann, Chris Liebing and DJ Friction make for an impressive package with 2 hours of forward thinking club music.

File Under: Annual label showcase featuring the latest 12” single highlights by Marcel Dettmann, Atoms For Peace, Cosmin TRG, Benjamin Damage, Phon.o, Bambounou and more, as well as 2 additional unreleased exclusive bonus tracks by Truncate and datei42.

The vinyl version features mostly out of print titles, plus 2 the unreleased exclusive bonus tracks by Truncate and datei42. 2012 was 50 Weapons most successful year so far. Voted as the number 1 label of the year by XLR8R (USA), number 2 label of the year by the readers of De:Bug (Germany) and ranked in the Top 10 of Top Labels 2012 by Resident Advisor (UK), amongst listenings in many other “Best Of The Year” categories in media around the world, never before has the label gained so much attention.

“50 Weapons of Choice # 30-39” aims to present some of the 12” single highlights of the past months in a cohesive manner. Label regulars Cosmin TRG, Phon.o, Anstam, Bambounou, Dark Sky, Addison Groove, Benjamin Damage, Marcel Dettmann are accompanied by A Made Up Sound and Thom Yorke-led group Atoms For Peace.

On the series' fourth installment of the series two new guests contribute exclusive bonus tracks: US techno veteran Truncate and mysterious Berlin based youngster duo datei42. Dive into the colourful worlds of 50 Weapons with this action packed adventure tale!


Long before Monkeytown Records Modeselektor started the 50 Weapons label back in 2006 as an anonymous white label series. No artist names, no release information, no cover art, just pure high class DJ music. Modeselektor, Siriusmo, Housemeister, Moderat, Headhunter, T++ and Shackleton, Bok Bok, Roska and many more appeared on the earliest white labels, later bundled as "50 Weapons of Choice # 02-09", a CD that was released as an ultra limited and numbered compilation, only available in indie stores."50 Weapons of Choice # 10-19" comes as the even stronger follow up, unmixed, with many new label signings, big names and hot newcomers all combined on an almost 1 hour long bass mission to defeat boredom.
