"Occasionally a record label transcends its function. Far from being merely a provider of music or a collection of disparate artists, it assumes an aesthetic quality, an agenda or belief that enhances and embellishes the end product. It's hard to separate New Order and Factory and similarly difficult to think of Depeche Mode without the Mute connection. However, a label's initial intentions often crumble leaving them as homogenized and sterile as many of today's major players. Plus 8, a label born over ten years ago, the brainchild of two fanatical Canadians, Richie Hawtin and John Acquaviva, never abandoned its militant and single-minded stance. Resolutely independent and fiercely determined, Plus 8 provided a welcoming stable to artists from around the globe, establishing a name for itself as a forward thinking progressive label that refused to pander to whim or fashion....Plus 8 was an inspired label. A futuristic vision brought to life by the drive and enthusiasm of two enlightened Canadians, it's hard to image the history of electronic music in the last decade without Plus 8. It continued to diversify right to the end in an attempt to remain one step ahead of the trailing pack. And this was its strength, it's single-minded approach and refusal to be swayed by fad or fashion marked it out as an individual. Few labels have come near to achieving what Plus 8 achieved in its short history, in seven years it managed to alter the course of electronic music forever. Here's to phase two." Artists on the first volume include: States of Mind, Cybersonik, Psyance, Kenny Larkin, Final Exposure, Speedy J, Fuse, V-Room. Plus an Alan Oldham comic book (PDF on enhanced CD-rom).
