The 24th issue of zweikommasieben focuses on an aspect of experimental electronic music that might be rather obvious: bringing anything to life usually is a collective effort. Our world and its culture thrives on collaboration, be it between artists or the number of people involved to get a release ready and out into the world. Given the abundance of collaborations, a deep(er) dive into their internal structures is warranted. For example, a recent EP by Phillip Jondo, which features Maxwell Sterling and DJ Plead, clearly designates these collaborations as such. However, the details of how this three-way-constellation developed into a shared practice are not as obvious. With the new issue of zweikommasieben, these details are being addressed in a conversation. Despite being a common practice in the scene, the modus operandi of collaboration is far from clear or pre-determined. :3LON explains in an interview that they often rely on intuition in choosing how to go about working together with others instead of deliberately weighing up interests. Bonaventure goes one step further by questioning the differentiation between solo and collaborative efforts: “Everything I share as a ‘solo project’ is in fact never experienced as such,” she explains in the pages of this magazine. The things we do are as much enabled by as they facilitate the connections we share with other people. zweikommasieben #24 highlights the conditions, intricacies, and consequences of collective efforts in the featured interviews, essays, columns, and artist contributions.

Quotes (previous editions):
Where To Now? – “zweikommasieben is the best mag out.”
abcdinamo – “A beautifully designed must read on electronic music.”
Thomas Lennon – “zweikommasieben is automatic purchase every issue.”
Tom Mouna – “(…) probably the best magazine for anyone interested in the key figures in contemporary electronic music.”
Rubadub – “One of our fav mags for sure.”
Sara Berts (Gang of Ducks) — “Every issue of the magazine is a typographic gem.”
&mags – “A journey of discovery through contemporary music.” (referring to #22)
A s h (Do Hits, Taiwan Beats) – “Underground community’s DIY spirit never fails.” (referring to #21)
Magculture – “From its 2011 beginnings, the magazine has had an inherent confidence. It’s a magazine that takes good design and rigorous journalism just as seriously as the music. The interviews themselves are pacy and interesting, the antithesis of basic promotional content.” (reviewing #20)
Rob Booth (Houndstooth) – “Another essential magazine…” (referring to #19)

Rewind Forward –“Now in its 18th edition, [zweikommasieben] is a testament to this rather solid DIY venture from a group of friends (…). Each ‘zine packs a masterclass in design—each one has a different look and feel—whether it’s a curious mix of page sizings, colour photos offset on newsprint, foil sleeves etc etc—they’re always a pleasure to unfold…”

Actress (Ninja Tune, Werk Discs) – “New edition looks great!” (referring to #17)
