New Band, new contest, new shirts, new bags….


1. New Band on Board

We are happy to announce that we have a new crew member on board.

They have written an original soundtrack for Walter Ruttmann’s 1927 silent movie “Berlin, die Sinfonie der Großstadt”.

Together with our friends from Dunk! Records we will release this beautiful peace of music on vinyl and CD in February 2014 followed by a three week tour in March.


Watch the demo versions for Act 1 & 2 via the link below.


2. Christmas contest

When we produce records, we never get the exact amount of copies. Sometimes we get less but sometimes more.

So we want to give away three overstock copies of the limited editions of the following releases

- EF – Ceremonies (yes, the wooden box edition incl. special silk-screen cover, T-Shirt, CD and much more)

- Instrument – Olympus mons (on blue vinyl)

- Immanu El – In passage (first pressing on white vinyl)

So what to do, to become a winner?

The Kapitän Platte crew loves christmas and we love christmas cards and of course we love it analogue.

So send us a REAL christmas card to the following adress:

Kapitän Platte

Every card that we receive until christmas will be part of the lottery.
