In 2008 my brother in law Henry, perhaps known to some of you as Riton, released his "Eine Kleine Nacht Musik" album. This beautiful (& maybe a bit overlooked) album was in part inspired by the records that I'd lent him from my Krautrock collection. We put this "Eine Kleine Tonite Mix" together to accompany that album in an unofficial capacity, to showcase this Krautrock music, as a gift to his fans & as a promotional tool for my (now defunct) clothing label Tonite. I say "we", but infact the mix is all Henry's work; I once again lent my records, suggesting what I thought were the strongest tracks. Henry by no means stuck to these suggestions, choosing what he felt would work & blending the seperate tracks together into a seamless whole. Some tracks are on the mix in their entirety & some are quite severely edited. I love what he's done with it...even tunes that are well familiar to my ears are given a new life. One last thing for the purists: not all the artists on this mix are German but all the music was released on German labels.
