From industrial cool to smoky skip and swing and back to the basement again—via a token dip in the acid bath on its last record, Krill Music has been snaking steadily through the dance floor’s many canons, plotting fresh axes between the fertile contemporary techno scenes of Manchester, Argentina, Italy, Sweden and Berlin along the way. Over four well received releases featuring original and remixed material from the likes of AnD, Jonas Kopp, Szare, Henning Baer, Pfirter, Ascion, X501 and Bleak the fledging label has quickly established itself as a trustworthy tastemaker, particularly when it comes to scouting young talent. And so, in acknowledgement of their first anniversary, Krill Music have curated a deluxe double vinyl package of new works from an array of budding to one-to-watch producers.
Atmospheric dub techno from Inner Surface Music man Tom Dicicco, acid tones from Charlton and Andrea Santoro, anxious 90’s-facing techno from Argentine Matt Saderlan to the various degrees of thoroughly modern floor works in between makes ‘Habitat’ a versatile resource for DJ’s and electronic fans alike. Including primary releases from a number of formidable newcomers like Swedish Lodbrok and UK act Fundamental Interaction, ‘Habitat’ presents a cross-pollinated compilation that places conscientious craftsmanship in the foreground, in turn delivering a record unequivocally stamped with dance floor sentiment and a keen sense of the here and now. Let Krill be your gatekeepers, and Music be your guide.
