- Waves Of The Future, an eight-track compilation, is out in February.
The 100th release on Alessandro Adriani's Mannequin Records label is a compilation called Waves Of The Future.
The compilation brings together a range of unheard cold wave, industrial, techno and experimental tunes from Adriani and a group of producers who haven't "yet" put out their own releases on Mannequin, according to the compilation's press notes. Silent Servant, whose Jealous God imprint recently issued an Adriani 12-inch, and L.I.E.S. boss Ron Morelli lead the way, while Beau Wanzer, Shawn O'Sullivan (who featured in our Machine Love interview series back in July), Not Waving, Willie Burns and Illum Sphere also contribute. There's also a collaboration between Adriani and An-i.
The compilation is due out on double-vinyl and digital formats on February 16th, which is also the night of a Mannequin showcase at Berghain in Berlin. A label tour is also in the works—details for both the tour and the Berghain event are still TBA.
