Sounds Benefit Records toast 7 Years with double vinyl LP

Established in 2015 by Parisian-based DJ and producer Tom Joyce, Sounds Benefit Records toast their 7 Year Anniversary with a double vinyl LP, enlisting a carefully curated selection of producers, spanning innovative electro and refined flavours of house and techno.

Mastered by Marco Pellegrino at AnalogCut Studio, the compilation is hand illustrated with artwork by long-time label affiliate French pen artist Kevin Lucbert – providing a crisp impression of a cosmic figure floating on a chair above what appears to be a dancefloor.

Highlights from the compilation include a track reissue of “New Delhi Projects” from Berlin-based producer S-Max, originally released on Freebase Records sub-imprint Below in 1999 – this is a chugging display of raw house that was way ahead of its time. Additionally, label boss Tom Joyce delivers “7:15pm”, a dreamy quest through melt in your mind synths and punchy electro drum patterns.

Our pick from the release is Lowtec‘s millennium gem “La Java 2014″ – produced in 2000 but never released, this is a exquisitely deep sci-fi house track is an absolute salute to the Roland 808, replete with eerie sounds that you’d expect from likeminded contemporaries such as STL. Thanks to the efforts of Joyce, this beauty is finally seeing the light of day.

‘7 Years of Sounds Benefit’ is scheduled for release on the 15th September via Sounds Benefit Records. Order a vinyl copy.
