Compiled by October aka Julian Raymond Smith in Bristol, this selection expresses the collective desire from a body of international artists, working in partnership with his Caravan label, to simply create a "music of this time." Presented together as Recession Vol.1, this continuous mix of material from the imprint offers up a template of electronic music both as a vision and aesthetic in permanent flux. A musical form stepping into the future, while constantly indebted to the labors and commitments of its past -- a retroactive narrative that pushes at the edges of possibility and a movement that seems a strangely apt soundtrack to this turbulent yet inspiring era of transition. Make no mistake, this is serious dancefloor business. Opening track, October's "Smorgisbored" sets the tone for this peculiar and unique strain of tech-house; unexpected sounds paired with strangely quirky hooks which define the output of Caravan Recordings. The label's signature is a fresh approach to dance music, with slick, clean productions which incorporate a range of unusual traits and cheeky production techniques. Recession Vol.1 includes some of the label's highlights from the past 12 months, available here on CD for the first time, such as the floor-killing TG track "Rene" and October's "Control Room Interior," along with cuts from (emptyset), Jilt Van Moorst and also features the digital exclusive remix of Etalon's "Uniqueness" by Mathew Leutwyler. Recession Vol.1 documents the first wave of Caravan's releases, and in turn, offers the listener an utterly alluring mix of organic, deep techno.
