Over the last five years, Out-ER has released a steady stream of world-class releases from, among others, Dutch heavyweight Orlando Voorn, Detroit pioneer Terrence Dixon, The Analouge Cops, UK veteran Aubrey, and label founders Simone Gatto and Andrea Santoro.
The latest release to arrive via the Berlin-based label will be a celebratory compilation featuring cuts from the aforementioned names, as well as Efdemin, Regen, Haiku & Irakli, Frequency Vs Juan Atkins, and Civilian. Stylistically, the album runs the gamut from warped electronica to heads-down, spacey techno; and across the nine tracks, Gatto and Santoro look at presenting a sound that unifies artists the world over, as they explain:
"Our aim has always been to define a sound capable of uniting Europe and America through an imaginative bridge existing since '90s. We strongly take inspiration from the emotions and melodies located in the old school tradition, yet we try rework the history in a contemporary key, adorning every sonorous element properly arranged in each track. The collaboration with such electronic music forerunners as Juan Atkins, Orlando Voorn and Terrence Dixon is a huge satisfaction for us."
OUT-ER 5 Years Anniversary will officially drop on December 5 via the Out-ER Bandcamp page. Ahead of that release, the label has offered up a full stream of Frequency and Juan Atkins' mind-bending techno cut "Reloaded," available via the player below.
