Versatile Records are proud to present a 12″ vinyl sampler of selected tracks from the forthcoming physical and digital anniversary compilation spanning 20 years of the labels output – “1996/2016”. The compilation will feature exclusive and unreleased music carefully chosen from the Versatile Records vaults.
The sampler features the return of the mighty I:Cube with his early House influenced cut “VVV”, inspired by the masters with that unique cubic touch.
Also featured is “Foliage (DJ Sotofett’s “Live Jazz” mix)”, the next chapter in Gilb’R & DJ Sotofett’s ongoing collaboration. Recorded at the end of a studio session at Versatile studios and featuring the percussion skills of Cosmic Newman and live sax of Zombie Zombie’s Etienne Jaumet the track remains here in it’s original, unedited form, just as nature intended!
I:Cube opens the B-side with his Boombastic remix of John Cravache whose forthcoming LP will be the 100th release on the label! For this mix I:Cube delivers a heavy, driving Techno cut that weaves a vocal mantra spoken in French through the rhythms.
Finishing the EP we are treated to the sublime Zombie Zombie cover version of New Order’s seminal “The Beach”, once only available on an unofficial, limited 7″ only release. Now available here for the first time on 12″ for this ultra special anniversary sampler!
