Steering away from the series usual direction of featuring up and comers, the most recent release puts the spotlight on a star studded lineup of label members as well as previous collaborators.
Starting us off is the HMIC (head mau5 in charge) with “Arguru 2k19,”a rework of his own original from his third album random album title. Following up with a change of pace, Eekkoo serves up warehouse realness with dark and sexy house track “Mando.” Other standout tracks include dreamy melodic collab “Feels Like” from the minds of ATTLAS and Colleen D’agostino as well as Wolfgang Gartner‘s “Casa Nostra.” Mr. Bill also graces the compilation with fun and futuristic “Ride or Die” with M4NDY.
