“10 Years of Technique” – Various (Technique) [ALBUM] September 23, 2009Posted by rocketsciencemedia in Press Releases.
There aren’t many labels in drum & bass – or indeed the rest of the industry – that can claim 10 years on the scene. Throughout jungle’s history, countless imprints have come and gone without leaving a lasting legacy. Only the strongest survive, and this year Technique Recordings joins that elite list, celebrating a decade on the dancefloor.
The brainchild of Drumsound & Bassline Smith, Technique Recordings (with its sister offshoot Worldwide Audio) has become one of the most consistent and successful imprints around. From the trio’s first single “Future Tech”, through the undisputed anthems “Junglist” (which reached number 60 in the national charts) and “Cold Turkey”, to recent smashes “Body Pump” and “Belly Dancer”, it’s maintained a constant presence on the world’s dancefloors, receiving rotation from most top DJs on the planet. The label is also home to exciting artists from throughout the globe such as Phetsta from Australia, and home-grown talents Youngman, Tantrum Desire and Technicolour.
To celebrate this landmark in their history, Derby’s finest have curated a very special album project. Across 15 tracks, “10 Years of Technique” gives you a flavour of why the label has continued to flourish, and showcases the myriad styles drum & bass has to offer, from heavy dancefloor smashers and sweet liquid funk, to house-inspired spine-tinglers and naughty nods back to old-school jungle’s history. Some of the labels biggest tracks have been given exclusive remixes, there are fresh tunes never heard before, and all members of the Technique family have provided their talents to make this an album for lovers of quality drum & bass in all its forms. Here’s to the next 10 years.
It promises to mark the labels birthday in spectacular fashion, and put down a marker for the next 10 years. Rest assured, Technique have only just gotten started.
