"Spanning 70 minutes and 27 tracks, Context Unravelled showcases six years and 16 adventurous releases on the San Francisco-based Context label, many of which have been available on vinyl only until now. In addition to Cali-techno heroes Sutekh (founder of Context), Safety Scissors, Twerk, Kit Clayton, and Dave Aju, the mix features a Plethora of international talent including Portable (South Africa/UK), Ben Nevile (Canada), Murcof (Mexico), Klunder (Australia), and Wang Inc. (Italy). A myriad of production techniques and cultural references are seamlessly integrated into this gripping, beat-driven narrative, from the spacious, orchestral soundscapes of Murcof to the silky dub-house gymnastics of Ben Nevile to the razor-sharp, algorithmically crafted techno of Twerk, to the African-inflected rhythms of Portable. Taken separately, each release reflects the personality and background of each artist, but with the aid of two turntables and a mixer, Sutekh has alchemically fused them into a captivating mix. About Context Free Media: founded in 1999 by Seth Horvitz aka Sutekh, the San Francisco-based Context label has remained a platform for music which presents the listener with more musical questions than answers. While Context has strong roots in dance music, most notably techno, it explores uncomfortable areas where this definition makes no sense. Never afraid to take chances on new talent, Context has released debut recordings by artists such as Safety Scissors, Portable, and Murcof, all of whom have gone on to record critically acclaimed full-length albums on Plug Research, ~scape, and the Leaf label."
