Minus Announces 'MinMAX' Compilation

The label helmed by Richie Hawtin (pictured above), Minus, has announced it will soon drop a brand-new compilation aiming to take advantage of the label's healthy roster and bridge the gap between the sounds of Minus and its sister imprint, Plus 8. Called MinMAX, the offering will arrive on May 24 as a sizable set of two CDs, three 12"s, and a 24-track digital download—all bursting with a grabbag of new goodies and exclusive tunes from label faithfuls Heartthrob, Gaiser, and Mathew Jonson. As he told Resident Advisor, Hawtin suggests that he "thought it was time to bring my labels Plus 8 and Minus closer together. The resulting series of releases is an evolving exploration of where these two entities converge. In extremes, 'min' represents a further push into the world of subtraction where I have found so much inspiration over the past decade, while 'MAX' continues to push an envelope in intensity and structure."

The first disc of the double-CD release will include 12 all-new tracks, with the second disc—curated by DJ Hobo—picking a few out of the first disc and incorporating them with other Minus tunes. The vinyl edition of MinMAX will feature an unmixed mishmash of 12 tunes from those two discs, while the digital version will put the entire package in one easy-to-buy place, along with some extras. Before it's all made available late next month, the artwork and tracklists for MinMAX can be perused below.
