Variations In Height

A curious story into the rise and fall and rise again (?) of a great label featuring some of the emerging artists of the dub techno world. Amazing albums, amazing artists, amazing tracks. And then something happened and no one, not even artists with albums slated for release on the label, seems to know exactly what happened.

This compilation is very much out of print and provides an excellent opportunity to tap into some of the best artists making dub techno music in its most recent iterations. Though there have been recent releases on the label, I am not certain as to its status.

Featuring tracks by such artists as Spaceci, Ohrwert, Giriu Dvasios and others, it's a great introduction to the label and an even better gateway into the diversity to be found in a sound that risks sameness and imitation.
