Focused on a varietal mix from just about every exp-electronic sub-genre, CL-X: Crazy 10 Years is certainly a welcomed closure to the year, bringing much needed horsepower to propel us into 2017.
Here’s another one before we close the books on 2016. Music certainly is a crazy language, and the Berlin-based netlabel celebrates its 10th year with an anniversary audio-visual compilation bringing together a rather large roster that continues to be prolific. Focused on a varietal mix from just about every exp-electronic sub-genre, CL-X: Crazy 10 Years is certainly a welcomed closure to the year, bringing much needed horsepower to propel us into 2017.
From the blissful and brisk tunes courtesy of Aestate, Burdeos, Phylum Sinter, MT4, Lackluster and Roel Funcken to the glitch’n grit pieces emitted by My Gloomy Machine, Sk’p, Valance Drakes, Kero, Enabl.ed, and XZICD, this plentiful audio-visual release pulls all the punches, gathering the finest electrical particles into one uniform digital package. Some Igloo favorites such as Huron (remixing Tinaidae), Jfrank, Logical Disorder, Rec_Overflow, Ontal, Plaster and Randomform make memorable appearances, and artists including AZ-Rotator, Nonima, Permissions, Vertical67, Swarm Intelligence, Ralp, Wirewound vs Datacrashrobot deliver darkened acidic electro/techno balanced against industrial chemicals. As the music and video fractals spill from every corner, Nick R 61, Datolar, Elypixa, Monoiz, and Vodor L Zexk are musicians to keep an ear on—their frequency blips and clips are certainly on par with other high-caliber articulated musicologists.
So dive right in, make some space on your spare external hard drive, and let Crazy Language control the controllers. Here we have a dizzying sonic array to bookmark the catalogs of the definitive (digital) music collector.
CL-X: Crazy 10 Years is available on Crazy Language.
