To celebrate the 10-year mark, Kontra-Musik label founder Ulf Eriksson has put together a collection of some of the imprint's best cuts. Tracks by Silent Servant, former XLR8R podcast contributor Shed, TM404, and Russian producer Anton Zap are among the ones hand-picked by Eriksson in order to commemorate the occasion.
According to the imprint, the eclectic selection has been intended to portray Kontra-Musik's many facets, stating "being open to a broad variety of sounds and rhythms—judging them not solely by their functionality but rather by their personality—has been the Kontra-Musik way from day one," adding, "we feel the chosen tracks represent the label's musical point of view of variation, substance and charisma."
