Techno Goes to the Olympics

Germany-based Great Stuff Recordings is taking techno into previously uncharted territory on its forthcoming label compilation–namely, the Olympic Summer Games in Beijing.

The double-disc release, simply titled Great Summer Games Stuff, will feature 24 electronic music artists hand-picked from 24 countries participating in the games. Exclusive tracks by everyone from Atomic Hooligan to Iran-born, Berlin-based producer Namito make up the sampler, and though the lineup is diverse, minimal is the main ingredient here.

Great Summer Games Stuff is out July 21. For all the sports-crazy readers out there, the Olympic Games kick off on August 8.
