One of the ultimate accolades for any label is to become so synonymous with their respected genre they become a watchword and benchmark for the sound. When it comes to electro a single word has ascended to these renowned heights – Mutants, John Dahlbäck’s music portal devoted to discovering the biggest and best in peak-time fun.
Now John’s taken to the decks to compile a fitting souvenir of Mutants in 2013 as he happily explains, “I’ve been really delighted with Mutants music output over the past year, so I hit upon the idea of doing a mix to celebrate, but it wasn’t till I put it all together that I realized just how consistent we’d been – every track is huge! It’s a testament to the skill and talent of the producers we’ve featured and, in some cases, discovered.”
The resulting album highlights 18 tracks from the likes of Greg Cerrone, Faustix, Lunde Bros, Felix Leiter & Marrs TV, Kitsch 2.0, Eitro and many more. The package is further sweetened by John himself as he includes an intro recorded exclusively for the comp’ and a brand new track, ‘Amedei’. But the real cherry on top comes by way of the unique price, which sees the label releasing the project at $4.99.
“It was brilliant fun putting this merger of Mutant’s past, present and future together so we want as many people to hear it,” expands John, “It’s full of energy and fun, which is what I wanted to achieve when I started the label and is at its very heart. Happy listening!”
