"Players is the first in a series of 'OpenSource' compilations. Each compilation will focus on a different field of electronic music today. Players is colorful array of easy swinging tracks, funky rhythms, soulful vocals, jazz and electronics from around the world. Compiled by Move D (almost entirely through the web). Don´t expect 'big names' but prepare yourself for some great music like the fantastic smooth opener by Obadia (originally from Paris, now living in Stockholm), the amazing George Clinton style vocal arrangements of Bangtown (Flint, Mi), Ali Omar´s beautiful e-piano soul 'love' (Sidney), the deep flow of sounds and improvisations of Finnlands Krii, the sadness and charm of Thomas Mayer's ballad 'values', Tara Rodgers shuffling grooves and organ escapades (Brooklyn), Exxon Yaz´s cool and lazy hip hop groove (Leipzig) and the deep piano and dubs of Digital Lofi (Dortmund). While each of the 18 tracks has a strong individual identity they are tied together by the common thread of having been tracked down by Move D on MP3 sites up and down the globe. The result is a stunning compilation of outstanding music. We can now lean back and enjoy the result. Homecooking at its very best. Also featured: exclusive new tracks by Transporter (self titled album on Source Records ´99 / 12" on Cheap as 'Reimann' / releases with B-Recordings on Cheap and Payola) and solo tracks by the 'Deep Space Network' -- members and heads of Source Records: David Moufang (Move D) and Jonas Grossmann (Bton)."
