- The first release will be Lars and Marek Bartkuhn's Walkin' Thru Circles EP, which originally came out in 2001.
Frankfurt house label Needs Music will return to record shops in November following an 11-year hiatus.
The outlet, started by Yannick Elverfeld and brothers Marek and Lars Bartkuhn in 1999, put out its last record in 2006. It's back with a new reissue series called Gold Edition, which will repackage old releases with new and updated versions of classic tracks. The first outing is a two-tracker by Needs, AKA Marek and Lars, called Walkin' Thru Circles, which originally came out in 2001. Alongside the newly mastered "Thump Mix" is the "Full Expansion," a new and reimagined interpretation featuring live instrumentation, percussion and vocals performed by Lars. The EP will be available on vinyl only.
