For over 18 years, Spectral Sound has thrived at the forefront of techno and house. It has been a source of support for numerous DJs and producers during that time, including Matthew Dear, Avalon Emerson, and Hieroglyphic Being.
Despite the compilations' wide-ranging selections, we're told to expect a throughline of classic style and infectious energy from the up-and-coming and established artists alike. The release features work from the likes of Minimal Violence, Russell E.L. Butler, Earth Trax x Newborn Jr., Tadd Mullinix—who drops a JTC remix of his new X-Altera alias—and Matrixxman, who collaborates with Riccardo Limiti on "Inferno."
Along with the album's announcement came a first-taste in the form of Nigel Casenaan's "January's End," and now the label has shared "Gunnar Haslam's "Versione Antica," the compilation opener.
