We are very happy to release our second various artist compilation. Again we feature electronic artists from all around the world – Iran, Japan, Taiwan, USA, Mexico, Russia and Germany. This is a global network based on friendship and the will and interest to express certain thoughts and emotions in an digital way and share it with others. Especially in 2014 – when we see the world shaken by sudden wars and political unrest – we want to submit this compilation to peace and freedom, regardless boarders and nations.
We start the selection with Odepth aka Arash Akbari from Iran. Compositions from Odepth are very moody with well designed pads – thoughtful and deep accelerating you for this sound journey.
Second we go with Abduct. Initially from Mexico is living in Budapest right now. Check out the page for his latest AV installation and more albums. Abduct is sound design at it’s best – as you might know from other posts here on SC.
Andi Finger is a publisher and artist from SC. This track is co-produced with Mephisto. The track has a lot of space and actually sounds like a good mixture of inspirations from Burial and Moderat.
Leaving the Planet is the Band of mine (David Gann) with Tzeshi and DorianDroid singing in this track. Recorded live in a gig in Lisbon.
r.m.ʝ〜ʎ is an artist from Japan. Her tracks have a lot of drive and push – combined with a happy mood. definitely a good listening!
The next track by GLASKIN is the one track that you want to have in your DJ set! ‘Party’s over’ is a great track and we are happy to have it in the mix. It is also ending the first thematic part in the compilation.
Second thematic part in this compilation is changing to a more urban and industrialized mood. It is introduced by Reverse Bullets – or Klaas van Carlos (Perfect Entropy) – who is currently oscillating between New York and Berlin as an independent film maker and producer.
This is also how we get to know Rowan J. Thyme from Virginia Beach in the US. He has a pretty cool urban style with really interesting tension curves in all the tracks. Absolutely recommending it!
‘Fossil of Flame’ is a solo track from Tzeshi (already appeared in the Leaving the Planet track). This is live PD patching going on here!
And at last we have a beautiful track from our friends YBSTN from St. Petersburg – They released already an album on SC and are doing fine with their AV installations and performances from what we hear. Many greetings at this point!
The artwork is produced from raw VVVV renderings from Kyle McLean (everyoneishappy.com).
That’s it. Hope everyone enjoys it. Leave us some feedback and share it.
