Background records was a very interesting label providing minimal how it used to be: hypnotic, dark and very deep releases with an experimental approach. Start to collect them if you want to remember how it used to sound before it gets lost between the contemporary mass production releases. Prices on these items are underestimated as these beauties are great pieces of minimal techno history.
