Dekmantel is celebrating its ten-year anniversary.
The Dutch electronic music institution is celebrating reaching the decade mark with a special ten-part EP series, inviting "producers who are close to their hearts, have been with them since day one or made a big musical impact on the crew." The EPs will be dripped out one a month; the first chapter, which is out now, features cuts by Gigi Masin, Vakula and Roman Flügel. April's edition will be a split EP by Call Super and Shanti Celeste, while the following month's is a four-tracker by Levon Vincent, Legowelt, Joey Anderson, and Central.
The Dutch crew have also revealed that Ricardo Villalobos, Burnt Friedman, Donato Dozzy, Tony Allen, The Egyptian Lover, Juju & Jordash, Palms Trax, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Joy Orbison, Huerco S, and Ectomorph are among the other contributors yet to come.
Dekmantel was born ten years ago when a few Amsterdam locals threw their first party; two years later, the record label was founded.
