Warsaw’s long-standing BTS collective inaugurates its label with a limited cassete compilation, including music from both guest artists and the collective’s members. Featuring 11 tracks from up-and-coming or under the radar Polish artists exclusively, the release showcases the diversity of the local electronic scene and at the same time tells a coherent story from start to finish.
The album opens with an explorative endeavour from Lensk of Mestiço fame, which already sets a melancholic mood, picked up by Jaxe’s Detroitesque acid cut. Side A continues with a stepping electroid workout by ISNT through Adam Czarnecki’s freaky techno and Tonallaxe’s heavy stomper, finished off with a dreamy stepper from T A K A. Side B verges into more industrialesque and cyberdelic territory with tracks from OTHK, Feral Rite and Marek Nalikowski, before winding down to Abu Zeinah’s hypnotic techno and Fau’s hazy breakbeats.
Mastered by Adam Czarnecki.
