Double CD Deluxe Compilation (Gold Leaf design by Kay Shin)
Compact Disc (CD)
Spearheaded by Alexander Nut and home to artists Floating Points, Fatima, Funkieven, Shaunise, Mizz Beats and Arp 101, Eglo have curated a deluxe double CD featuring twenty-three tracks from the labels impressive catalogue 2009 - 2013.
Eglo Records Vol.1 is the labels debut LP and the first release in CD format. The double CD chronologically highlights key tracks from the labels roster 2009 - 2013, including four new and exclusives cuts alongside previously hard to find vinyl only releases.
Displaying the labels colourful past whilst simultaneously launching into new territories, the unique and soul filled aesthetic of Eglo Records encompasses the diasporic sounds of House, Hip Hop, 2Step, RnB, Broken Beat, Boogie, Acid, Techno and beyond. Based in London but taking on a global view, the label’s core is made up from a circle of nomadic artists.
From the first 7 inch release in 2009 to Floating Points Shadows EP in 2011, it also features a twenty page booklet chronicling the birth of the label through photos by Vent Fury and a foreword by Alexander Nut, beautifully presented in a gatefold sleeve designed by Kay Shin.
The Kampala producer's debut LP subverts the dominant paradigm of club music, providing a fresh, dark, and doomy soundtrack that is as meditative as it is danceable. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jun 22, 2021
