After 10 vinyl-only singles the Dial sub-label Laid releases a selection of essential house music masterpieces for the first time on CD. Since Dial brought up its eccentric family business in 2000, the love for true house music was always one main inspiration. Highly inspired by the U.S.-based music, a label was needed to be the cosmopolitan sister of Dial. Inviting protagonists like Jus-Ed, Keith Worthy, Patrice Scott, Fred P. and many others from the United States to the legendary Dial Allnighters, exchanging tracks and ideas, and launching a thousand DJ sets worldwide, this is where the concept for Laid was built. It began in May 2009 with Detroit legend Rick Wade -- a very classical start. Followed by tracks and 12"s by artists like John Roberts, Fred P., Marcello Napolitano, Lowtec, Christopher Rau and many more, Laid has fulfilled a whole range of styles from traditional to contemporary, from sweet to dark, from clean to rough. Here is a compilation that shows how deep, fresh and colorful the Laid sound still is. House music is here to stay. Other artists include: Lawrence, RNDM, Smallpeople, Kassem Mosse and Black Jazz Consortium.
