Various 4 years

Canadian design firm Wabi digs on all things minimal-both in music and graphic imagery. 4 Years is a retrospective of microtech music created mostly by Canadian producers for use in Wabi's live sight-and-sound events. Artists such as Fairmont, and British Columbia's Nassau weave subtle mumbled vocals and steady throbbing sequences, while Polmo Polpo's "Losing My Tentacles" blurs numerous post-techno and ambient subgenres, anchoring them to beats that escape from funk's humid regions to cooler climates. Dub is an essential ingredient throughout, and this collection reverberates with all the Jamaican flourishes you can muster out of its curt frequencies. Wabi's ability to pimp excellence from an international gamut of minimalists is a sign that a label may be imminent.
