Really good comp. You can listen straight through and stay into it. Most electronic vinyl double packs these days are just collections of tracks for djs to pick and choose the couple good tunes to spin. This collection is full of good tunes of varying styles and tempos that all have a certain collective forward-thinking, non-conformist vibe to them and hang well together like an actual album should. It reminds me of a classic idm comp cd back in the day like the Artificial Intelligence releases--where its just chock full of strong tracks by solid artists to watch. Well done, Future Times!
Nice solid compilation by the Future Times crew from DC. Despite a variety of artists with diverse styles, you got some Nu Disco, Cosmic sounds, 21st Century Boogie, and a nod to old school Chicago, there is a common aesthetic throughout that means it works just as well as an album that you can listen to from start to finish. If you've been following the LIES label then you should know what to expect. Highlights for me are Max D's remix of LIES "Comeback Dust", Tom Noble's slamming boogie funk on "Malaco" and the dreamy deep acid of Steve Summers' "Uncollected Grooves". Great stuff, definitely keep an eye (or an ear) on the Future Times label.
