I'm a Cliché Turns Five
- Words: Jennifer Marston
In 2004, Parisian producer Cosmo Vitelli started his I'm a Cliché imprint, and thus came a slew of singles by artists like Simian Mobile Disco, Quiet Village, and Yuksek. Five years and a whole lot of music later, the label is unveiling its first-ever compilation, and, as celebratory label collections often are, Moments of a Crisis is a two-disc package where past and future meet.
Disc One collects I'm a Cliché classics from the last five years (like SMD's "The Mighty Atom") while the second disc offers brand-new material exclusive to the release. For wax junkies, a vinyl sampler will also be available, featuring six tracks.
And while we await the compilation's release date (July 21 for digital download, September 8 in physical format), Vitelli and Co. have leaked a new number by Azari & III. It will appear on the second disc of Crisis, but we have it here for listening right now:
