Classic Launches New Compilation Series
- Words: Taylor Fife
Venerable UK record label Classic—founded by DJs Luke Solomon and Derek Carter—has announced a new compilation series called Through the Eyes Of, in which friends of the label are invited to create a mix of "the forgotten gems, the overlooked cuts, the head scratchers, the missing links, and the secret weapons" from the extensive Classic catalogue. The first compiler for the series is UK DJ and Leftroom label head Matt Tolfrey. The artist's mix album will include four exclusive tracks, including three remixes by Tolfrey himself, and will be released on December 12.
