...step beyond.": Holocene Music Remix Compilation Volume 1. "Holocene, Portland, Oregon's forward thinking club-turned-record-label, is proud to announce its debut release. Teaming Portland indie rock with the city's finest electronic producers, It's importland to me to be one step further than one step beyond: holocene remix compilation volume 1 presents a snapshot of a thriving creative scene at a time when these seemingly disparate camps have begun meshing into one. Here, Holocene takes the next logical step in its role as supportive home base and active participant in this movement, creating a new record label devoted to further exploring the intersection of DIY culture and futuristic technology as it exists in Portland, the Northwest, and beyond. To kick things off, Holocene commissioned a unique collaboration in which a selection of the city's most talented electronic musicians were asked to reinterpret the music of their favorite Portland bands. The result is a post-millennial blend of electropunk, indie rock, and outsider folk, digitally spliced and mutated to form a cohesive album of genre-screwed electronic music."
