In celebration of a decade in business, the label is releasing a double whammy compilation of further soul fueled electronic music: One Point Three is the third in a series of fine collections exploring the outer reaches of techno, electronica and experimental sounds. Coming in two Archives the full compilation contains selections from 23 artists and includes tracks from Ukkonen, Will Bolton, Recue and the fantastically named Hopeless Local Marching Band.
Things commence relatively chilled with the bubbling arps and warm pads of “Aphelion” by Forever Sound before an immediate segue into the gentle rippling acoustic guitar work of Will Bolton. Murray Fisher follows with a fine contribution of piano led ambiance in a new departure from previous beat led outings under previous guise Mint. Later we find recent winners of best band name ever Hopeless Local Marching Band delivering a beast of an oddity that’s all opposing rhythms, demented circus melodics, industrial percussion and a sense of style as wonky as their name. Anzio Green provides the complete antithesis to this madness with “Sorry for all the mistakes”—pitching shimmering guitar against time stopping atmospherics in sultry style. Other tracks that tickled these ears find Recue showcasing superb production skills across a frenetic skittering IDM/dubstep hybrid complete with dreamy female vocal. Langer explores deep spacey dub techno territories and Ukkonen provides a characteristically left field take on melodic techno. Nice, indeed.
