Listen to the Upcoming Compilation from Pinch's Cold Label
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Featuring tracks from budding UK producers Batu, Acre, Ipman, Elmono, and the Cold label head himself, Pinch, the forthcoming CO.LD compilation can now be heard in full ahead of its release on Friday.
The 12-track effort gathers a handful of new productions along with vinyl-only tracks previously released by Pinch's fledgling label, which was launched last year with the goal of expanding on the sound palette that the Bristol artist's well-established Tectonic imprint has become known for. Across its hour-long run, the CO.LD collection delves into a number of bass-focused hybrids, offerings tough rhythms, deep low end, and otherworldly sonics which are all finished off with appropriately icy atmospheres.
The entire CO.LD compilation can be streamed below before it sees an official release on April 11; the digital collection is available for pre-order here.
