A label that has surely done its part to help explore and define the darker ends of UK club music, Dusk + Blackdown's Keysound imprint is set to issue its 50th release on Monday in the form of a 14-track compilation. Featuring new productions from the likes of Logos, Wen, Murlo, E.m.m.a., Facta, and more, the forthcoming Certified Connections comp is now streaming in full ahead of its release exclusively on XLR8R.
Counting as the label's second compilation in as many years, Certified Connections puts on display the diverse range of electronic music the Keysound camp covers. Bookended by more patient exercises from Logos and relative newcomer Luke Benjamin, the collection touches on cold 130-bpm constructions, heady grime experiments, and a number of other fearlessly futuristic club hybrids in the course of its run. Set to appear in CD, 2xLP and digital formats on November 24 (with certain editions to be accompanied by a special mixed version of the album by Parris), Keysound's Certified Connections compilation can be streamed in full below.
