Here comes the long awaited Remix 12inch of MUDEGG – “Who´s Hot?” with such big Remixers as DODI PALESE with actually two contributions with a light retro touch and always the feel for the “right moment”, and ENZO ELIA with another killer remix in an analog synth wave arpeggiator 80´s Italo style. Mudegg even provides another remix of their “Light Riders” in a Tech-style version.

VA • DIE NOTENBANK • LP is out now on Vinyl !!!

Posted by tom On August - 23 - 2021

Black Pearl Records is very proud to present the new compilation-album “Die Notenbank”, which features the East-German Beat- & Rock-scene from the end of the 60´s until the early 70´s and many of their bands, with some songs that have not been released before !

“Die Notenbank” was the first german-language Rock & Beat television show for the young audience in the GDR from 1969-1972 in a total of 8 episodes, and many bands celebrated their television premieres on this show.
The concept for this program was invented by the filmmaker and Beat-music enthusiast Bernd Maywald.
The goal was to give amateur bands the opportunity to play and show their talent to a bigger audience via television, to inspire other modern beat bands to become more self-sufficient, and of course for the young people to have something to dance to.


Die Schwarze Perle präsentiert hier ein Herzensprojekt für den Ostdeutschen BEAT Himmel.

Die Notenbank war die erste deutsch sprachige Rock TV Sendung für das Jugendliche Publikum in der DDR von 1969-1972.
Erfinder dieser Sendung war der Filmemacher und Beat Musik Sympathisant Bernd Maywald.
Ziel war es Amateur Bands die Möglichkeit zu geben ihr Talent im Fernsehen zu präsentieren und folglich auch weitere moderne Beat Kapellen zu inspizieren, eigene Werke zu schaffen und größtenteils zum Tanz für junge Leute zu spielen.
Das Resultat waren 8 Sendungen mit überragend kreativen frühen Komposition in Sachen Beat bis Jazzrock.
Zu sehen und hören waren Bands wie Joco Dev, Modern Soul, Electra, Bayon, Horst Krüger Septett, Klosterbrüder, die Puhdys und noch viele mehr…

Im Jahre 2014 entstand im Hause Black Pearl Records die Idee mit Bernd Maywald eine Kompilation mit den insbesondere noch unbekannten sowie herausstechensten musikalischen Perlen aus der Sendung zu erstellen.
Nach langer Recherche nach noch verschollen Aufnahmen und Hausbesuchen bei den Bandmitgliedern ist die Schwarze Perle mehr als Stolz nun diese hörenswerte Zusammenstellung mit feinstem DDR Freak Beat und funky Jazz im deutschsprachigem Gewand zu präsentieren. Viel Freude beim hören und tanzen !

The Remixes Part 2 includes the long time awaited Musumeci’s version of “Tocci Touch” which consists in an original fusion of modern disco, prog rock and balearic vibes.

Black Pearl Records is very proud to present our new Disco compilation EP “DISCO DE:LIGHT” with songs by artists from Germany only!

On the A-side Black Pearl Records selected a few songs to present a cross-section of the german Zeitgeist from the classic 70 disco years to Cosmic Disco to NDW Synth Pop.

As a big special the track by the extra-ordinary West-Berlin Funk band „MODYVATION“ is a premiere and can be heard for the first time since it was recorded and put on ice in 1978.

On the B-side MUDEGG presents with “Disco Delight” a musical collage of only german Disco dub-parts, drum breakdowns, breaks, loops and interesting parts all combined in a 19 minutes homogeneous dance mix.

As Special Bonus comes 2 Reworks of Enzo Elia & Mudegg of C. Kreutzers NDW Disko Electro Hymne “Sie Hat Das, Was Dir Fehlt”.


Die Schwarze Perle erleuchtet den Disco Himmel mit einer grandiosen Auswahl aus west-deutschen Landen. Auf der ersten Seite gibt es einen Überblick über den Disko Zeitgeist jener Tage von klassicher Disco über Kosmischen Disco Klänge bis zu NDW Synthesizer Pop Musik.

Die zweite Seite ist eine gelunge sehr rhythmische Musikcollage mit ausschließlich deutschen Disco Exzerpten.

Als Spezial Bonus Material kommen Reworks von Enzo Elia & Mudegg von C. Kreutzers NDW Disko Electro Hymne “Sie Hat Das, Was Dir Fehlt”.


Black Pearl Records is more than proud to present the very timeless, beautiful but bittersweet Singer-Songwriter album of CLARA HILL.

Driven by a craving for spontaneity – to let her ideas Shine – and especially inspired by her travels, both earthly and spiritual, it’s an unusually contemplative record that’s also the first she’s written and produced alone. Conceived amid natural surroundings – from Mexico to Canada to Sicily – its idyllically acoustic, subtly psychedelic, sedately soulful folk largely eschews electronic embellishments in favour of a combination of reflective soul and the moods of 60s/70s Brazilian `tristeza´, making it an honest, instinctive, affecting expression of Hill’s voice at its purest. (Wyndham Wallace)


Die Schwarze Perle ist hocherfreut die Lokalmatadorin aus Berlin mit ihrem neusten und wohl besonderstem Schaffenswerk “Shine” den Musikliebhabern präsentieren zu können. Wunderschöne, zeitlose sowie bittersüße Singer-Songwriter Musik gewürzt mit viel Folk, etwas Soul, Jazz und psychedelischem Einfluss entstand hier während einer 3 jährigen Reise ins Innere und Äußere. Mit musikalischen Einflüsse aus Mexico, Kanada, Brasilien bis Sizilien entführt Clara Hill den aufmerksamen Hörer und lässt ihn spürbar mit auf Reisen in ferne Gefilde gehen. Tom & Roskow wünschen viel Freude und Gänsehaut beim hören !
