The Different compilation is the result of meticulous and thorough work by the Boxer crew, with "otherness" as its overriding principle. Different is far from being just a hoarding of leftovers, it is rather conceived as a poison cabinet with doors wide open, a playground for free spirits and artists, and an open space far beyond the dancefloor dramaturgy and its rigid rules or common expectations. Some candidates involved in this project are already familiar with this freedom: Kreidler, for example, who come up with their full panoply of subtleties and the microscopic funk track "Venusia"; or Frank Martiniq, who reinterprets urban myths about intelligent cars or genetically-modified monster crocodiles living in the city's sewer system, and of course, in slow-motion and high-resolution. Others are obviously enjoying their time off from the 4/4: Pig&Dan present charming, smooth lo-fi pop; Extrawelt adjust their bore holes; Gui Boratto adds sound to psychotropic thrillers in the Brazilian jungle, and Florian Meindl meditates upon string ensembles taking a walk on the beach. Altogether, the quality of these tracks is exceptional, thanks to the pioneer spirit that drives the journey into unknown territories, and all electronic music artists know exactly what we are talking about. Even some of the artists involved are somehow different from Boxer's regular label artists. Nevertheless, the end-result of the Different compilation is coherent and thrilling, and might as well be called a masterpiece. Other artists include: Patrick Chardronnet, Goldfish & Der Dulz, Airbus Modular, Stephan Hinz, Matzak, &Iz, Popof, Arno Joey, Van Rivers, Paul Nazca, Fix & Fertig, Haito, Dean Demanuele, Khan & Mahmoud, Markus Lange, Dusty Kid, Odyzë, Rodriguez Jr., and Martin Eyerer.
