ROTERSAND's defining classic "Truth Is Fanatic" (2003) is being reissued by Dependent as a limited edition double vinyl albums and as luxurious artbook with numerous bonus tracks. These include the 'lost' demo "Summer 02" and single "Dark Raver", which are both officially released for the first time on "Truth Is Fanatic".
ROTERSAND detonated onto the German scene seemingly out of nowhere in the early new millennium. Named after an iconic red-and-white banded old lighthouse that used to guide ships in the German Bight, ROTERSAND left the impression of being downright omnipresent. ROTERSAND were formed in 2002 by former THE FAIR SEX bassist Rascal aka Rasc, who moved to the frontman position and joined forces with multi-instrumentalist and lyricist Gunther 'Gun' Gerl. The duo's first 4-track demo, simply called "Summer 02", soon circulated widely within underground electro circles and even found its way into the clubs. Soon after the demo release, Krischan J. E. Wesenberg joined the ROTERSAND crew. The DJ, sound engineer, and producer soon proved to be the perfect choice to give those rough song gems new facets and to make them sparkle and shine.
