Collaborative album from Berlin-based duo Max Graef & Glenn Astro, who released their respective debut albums independently for the excellent Danish label Tartelet before co-founding their own label Money $ex Records in 2015.
Max and Glenn are music lovers first and foremost – playing it, making it, digging for it, talking about it – music is their lifeblood. Less concerned with the world of online hype, you could describe their vibe as “old school”. Put them behind the turntables and they’ll smash out a proper 100% vinyl back-to-back set skipping between jazz, funk, hip-hop, soul and disco – the heart and the backbone of their sound – and have the whole room freaking out to Polish jazz-funk oddities.
They have also previously partnered with Box Aus Holz, Brandt Brauer Frick (‘The Gym’), Space Hardware and WotNot Music.
For ‘The Yard Work Simulator’, “We wanted to make a dance record without the obvious components,” explains Max. The result is a 10-track trip through the pair’s deliciously warped psyche, channelled through a ton of hardware.
A direct extension of the album’s irreverent sonic palette, the artwork is by friend and illustrator Rahel Süßkind.
