LOW STOCK LEVEL
A collection of bands from Manchester associated with the IDM label of the moment, Skam. The previous CD compilation from label, Skampler, featured tracks from their often impossible to find 12" releases; this one features all exclusive tracks, from: Mild Man Jan, Jackfear, Gescom (Autechre), The Fall, Bola, Martian Tin Can, Jega, V/VM, The Renegrades, Audiomontage, Datathief, O'Natural, Yunx & Professional Broxburn. This label is burning with momentum as the logical successor to Warp & Rephlex for the throne of hipness in the experimental electronic field, and this comp is a tremendous intro to the aggressively out, pulse-pushing sounds being emitted from Skam. Acid-burned weirdbeats, post-Squarepusher programming insanity and an overall thrilling vibe of adventuresome sound are all prevalent here.
