We're 5 years old! To celebrate, we've put together a compilation of brand new tracks from label regulars & more!
Tom Budden's, ALiVE Recordings marks a milestone this September, as the imprint reaches 5 years in the industry, the Years of ALiVE' compilation employs some of the leading artists on the roster over the years, to provide freshly produced cuts for this 13 track collection.
ALiVE Recordings has come a long way since Budden's inaugural single on the label, Snakebite, with the back catalogue boasting heavy hitters from the likes of Audiojack, Chris James, Shadow Child, Bubba & T-Bone and Viadrina. Several of the aforementioned names have provided new records for this compilation.
Over the course of its fifty plus releases, the ALiVE imprint has honed in on a deep, distinct and infectious house sound, putting it on the map as a leading light in the contemporary electronic music scene. Nolan's The Legacy, which kicks things off here, is a shining example of this, with its retro drums and bulbous subby tones, while promising young producer Chris Coat Of Arms James, offers up some classy modern house vibes in the shape of U Know When U Know.
Budden turns in a drummy, deep number with Come 2 Me, while Audio Tonic's very own, Raxon, delivers a throbbing bassy cut. Further highlights come courtesy of rising producer Cera Alba, who puts things on 90's Garage tip with Acetate, and Polish duo Viadrina, delve into their dark and brooding vibe with Shellshock. In addition to the above, the thirteen track comp features records from Mat.Joe, Monday Club, Mar-T, Mella Dee, VELCRO, Deep City Groove and Della Zouch, as expected each one instilled with an undeniable quality and perfectly crafted for the dance floor.
