Novidades - Compilações

VARIOUS - Cocoon Compilation G (Cocoon Germany) Comentários: One of the most successful Compilation series in Germany returns for it's next round, and with the letter 'G', Sven Väth and Pauli Steinbach of Cocoon Recordings consequently continue on the path they already followed before. The names from the tracklistings of previous volumes reads like the who's who of the Techno universe, featuring names such as Guy Gerber, James Holden and Roman Flugel, and this latest edition also represents a broad selection of both established and up and coming artists. House connoisseurs My My stand alongside deep tech house and live specialists Cobblestone Jazz, whilst Israeli newcomer Chaim is on hand with a distinctly tripped out summer time track called 'Genesis'. The rest of 'Compilation G' is made up with tracks from Stephan Bodzin, the legendary Tiefschwarz, Audion, Northern Ireland's favourite son Phil Kieran, and also Jamie Jones. nota do editor [Para Ouvir]

VARIOUS - Mute: Audio Documents 1978-1984 (Mute) Comentários: Going through the tracklisting here re-asserts the notion that Mute is nothing short of a national treasure - and with so many of the tracks here re-mastered and available on cd for the first time (not to mention the 20 bonus rarities included from the likes of Fad Gadget, Depeche Mode and Nick Cave) - "Mute Audio Documents" must surely rank as one of the most exciting collections of late 20th century independent music you're ever likely to own, and a must-have item for anyone with a deep interest in music generally. ESSENTIAL PURCHASE - ONLY A LIMITED NUMBER OF EDITIONS HAVE BEEN MADE! in boomkat [Para Ouvir]

VARIOUS - Nothing Much/Something More - A Best Of Minus (Minus Canada) Comentários: This two disc retrospective brings together one CD's worth of unmixed tracks compiled from the Minus label's estimable back catalogue and a further, as mixed by Troy Pierce. The first disc - a 'greatest hits' of sorts - opens up with Magda's '48 Hour Crack In Your Bass'. Onto the Troy Pierce mix CD, and you'll hear some of these same tracks recontextualised, threaded in amongst a slew of different selections, including several remixes of Heartthrob's 'Baby Kate' alongside cuts by Ambivalent, Tractile, Niederflur, Berg Nixon and I.A. Bericochea. An excellent - one-stop shop for some of Minus' finest moments, all brought together into a handy digital bundle. A fine package indeed. in boomkat [Para Ouvir]
