"Founded in 1997 by pop-experimentalist Frank Dommert and Andi Toma and Jan St. Werner of Mouse on Mars, Sonig soon became the home to internationally revered artists such as Workshop, Microstoria, Mouse on Mars, F.X.Randomiz, Kevin Blechdom, Uské Orchestra, Schlammpeitziger, Vert and Candie Hank - all of which are featured prominently on the two-disc compilation. In 2012 Sonig will celebrate its 15th birthday and this box sets the party mood. Besides the music, which hasn't grown old a bit, what really makes this compilation special is its picture-book DVD. Sandwiched nicely in between the two slices of sonig music, the disc contains 31 video artifacts unearthed and collected over the course of the label's history. They are a veritable treasure trove of esoteric high-tech clips, elaborate animations and abstract experimental films. Morbid holiday footage from the 60s, art clips by Mouse On Mars, classics by Schlammpeitziger, and trashy no-budget crime stories by Candie Hank all stand side-by-side like a vaudeville freak show."
