Various 2CDS & MP3s
- Words: Tony Ware
- Label: Novamute
With 16 tracks and 28 MP3s spanning two CDs, this compilation doubles as not only a Novamute "state of the union" overview, but also as a statement on disunion. Compiling tracks mostly previously released on vinyl while conversely indicating a future of digital in/digital out (contrary to many labels), Novamute here offers not only mirrored MP3s, but exclusive MP3s. Alongside crisp configurations of post-industrial/electro/acid (house) sounds by Tim Wright, Umek, S.I. Futures, Speedy J, Luke Slater, Acid Casuals, Echoboy, Plastikman, Cabaret Voltaire, Nitzer Ebb and more (including Thomas Brinkmann and Akufen remixes) are MP3 exclusives featuring work by some of the above, plus Derrick May, Buckfunk 3000, Steve Stool, Tiga and more. Novamute show that future distribution doesn't have to be any one way any more than the music does, and the clock towards label reinvention is ticking as steadily as these techy tracks.
