Entirely geared toward the futuristic fringes of electronic music, Turin-based label Gang Of Ducks celebrate their third anniversary with ‘Paradisia‘, an eleven-track compilation gathering well-known contributors Shape Worship, My Panda Shall Fly, Ital, Traag and new additions such as Datashock, S. Olbricht, Quicksails.
To those who’re not familiar with the label’s aesthetics, ‘Paradisia‘ offers a perfect introduction, nicely adding up to GoD’s forward-thinking vision; meshing widescreen, cyber-age electronics and off-grid techno beats to the fullest.
On hi-NRG warehouse melter ‘Call Me‘, Lovers Rock head Ital harnesses a storm of convulsing drums, alarm-like outbursts and mangled vocals, tearing them apart through multiple layers of crusty FX as it hurtles down mental techno rapids at breakneck rhythm. Like catching lightning in a bottle, this one’s all about speed and thrills galore.
Paradisia is released via Gang Of Ducks on August 26th. In addition to the digital issue, Turin-based Airbag Studio has designed a special poster to enrich this compilation.
