Various Artists / Soul Jazz Records Presents - Sounds of the Universe: Art + Sound
Label Soul Jazz
Soul Jazz Records’ ‘Sounds Of The Universe: Art + Sound’ is a new album featuring some of the most forward-thinking and progressive artists and producers working with electronic music around the world today.
This lovingly compiled collection features a stunning array of contemporary artists: Chicago’s Afro-futurist genius Hieroglyphic Being; Kaseem Mosse (aka Gunnar Wendell / Siege Of Troy), one of the most talked-about, respected artists in underground house and techno; Andres, out of Detroit’s Moodyman stable and; Los Angeles-based Ras G, associated with the Brainfeeder label established by fellow producer Flying Lotus.
The first half of this new collection features tracks recorded exclusively for Soul Jazz Record’s bespoke Sounds Of The Universe label. These were originally issued under their ‘Art + Sound’ series between 2012 and 2015 as unique hand-etched and original commissioned art pieces (reproduced here), collectors’ 12” singles pressed in micro-editions of 250 copies each that were only available exclusively from Soul Jazz Records’ boutique Sounds Of The Universe shop in Soho, London.
The second half of the compilation features a fantastic set of all brand new exclusive tracks from the likes of Seven Davis Jr, Drexciya collaborator DJ Stingray, deep house virtuoso Mike Huckaby, Glaswegian noise-punk six- piece Golden Teacher and lots more - all created and commissioned especially for this release. These songs are not available anywhere else in the world.
Two separate double vinyl editions in heavyweight vinyl and gatefold sleeves with full artwork and free download codes.
