Biography

In early 1993 Christopher Just, artist and record dealer, and party organizer Peter Votava met amidst the emerging Austrian Techno scene. Under the moniker Ilsa Gold they soon published their first EP’s 1 and 2 containing early Rave classics such as Up and Silke which promoted them to the Frontpage Magazine’s charts top. This most remarkable Austrian Techno act gained attention due to the unusual sampling of people like Peter Cornelius and Karel Gott combined with harsh Techno and Hardcore music that never lacked of musical skills or wit. Sharp, self-deprecating humour criticising the rave scenes and some of its supporters’ squalidness (keyword: drug abuse), the foundation of their own label, the establishment of legendary Ilsa Gold parties and last but not least their unconventional presentation that even led to the formation of the persiflage-band Sons Of Ilsa were only a few of Ilsa Gold’s missions before they officially split up in 1996.

They were the darlings of the young rave nation, the nightmare of investigative party journalism and, needless to say, the kings of scheiss-house: they were Ilsa Gold, Austria’s legendary and probably most irritating contribution to the history of electronic music.
It was 1993 that artist and record dealer Christopher Just joined forces with party organizer Peter “DJ Pure” Votava the year that techno was set to become the sound of the decade.

    I can't tell how much I LOVE your mayday 2011 set ! I guess, I'll be sick of it in about 2 weeks, but I just can't stop listening to it again and again and again and.... ;) This is so much what the german techno-scene needs or at least what I need! ;)

    You don't know the German-speaking Rave/Happy Hardcore scene of the early 90's if you don't know these guys.
