- The Londoner's picks pay homage to the UK's rich musical history.
Joy Orbison has compiled the latest instalment in Dekmantel's Selectors series.
Spread across four sides of vinyl, Selectors 004 aims to capture the rich history of UK dance music. It takes in tracks new and old, with sought-after breakbeat, '90s drum & bass and early techno from artists and groups like R Solution, Source Direct (as Oblivion) and L.E. Bass. Beatrice Dillon and Klein, both newer names, also contribute to the release, which lands on November 13th. Listen to samples here.
"The UK at its best is a celebration of diverse cultures intertwining and creating beautiful results," Joy Orbison says. "Hopefully this collection of music can document a piece of that. Now more than ever, it seems important to acknowledge and celebrate this."
Selectors 004 follows well-received editions from Motor City Drum Ensemble, Young Marco and Marcel Dettmann.
