2×12″ – Widerstand Records – WS16/LP4
Digital – Wire Globe Recordings – WGR18
Release date: 1. June 2013

Ab-Hinc´s Farkhülse Fist 12″ came out in 1997 and was the fourth release of Widerstand Records.
At that time the release was located quite offside the speedcore-electronics line of the label. Kovert described Farkhülse Fist in datacide 3 as “a true funeral march soundtrack as the slowest breaks break over controlled noise and disturbing electronics. Pitched down voices and synths wash over the noise and beats.”

15 years later, the artists and composers Pure (A/D), Kovert (UK), Eiterherd (A), chfs (A), Kajkyt (BiH/A), Opcion (aka Ab-Hinc) (A), Shiver Electronics (A) and Freudenberger (D) were invited to work out the so-called reconfigurations.

The result is a connection of academic music and subculture which leads to a weird collection of conceptual sound art, atmospheric drones, abstract noise experiments and dark beats. The Farkhülse Fist Reconfigurations was released on 1st of June 2013 as a 2×12″ album again on Widerstand Records and as a digital version in cooperation with Wire Globe Recordings.
