Following on from last years hugely popular Soul Clap Social Experiment compilation, electronic music heavyweights Art Department step into the driving seat to compile and mix the latest installment in No.19 Musics album series. This is a outstanding taster in the form of the vinyl sampler featuring original material from My Favorite Robot & Art Department themselves
And so it is fitting that the next installment in No.19s Social Experiment compilation series should be brought to life by Jonny White and Kenny Glasgow AKA Art Department. Were not going to give away too much about the album just yet, suffice to say that it will include a host of brand new material from some of the most sought after and exciting artists around. To whet your appetite however we have a very special sampler featuring two brand new tracks from Art Department and a sterling contribution from My Favorite Robot.
The A side features the epic ten and a half minute Insomniac, a wonderfully rich and emotive cut that draws together warm bubbling bass, old school synths and Kennys haunting vocals to create a record with a truly sensual feel, sublime stuff. On the flip things get started with another highlight from the forthcoming compilation, the superb Not Progress from fellow Toronto artist My Favorite Robot. The MFR boys deliver a deep & melancholic yet blissfully emotive track that features their trademark vocals over a richly produced backing that perfectly hits the mark. To close the package Switzerlands Gregorythme offers up the excellent Artificial Tears, a deep and emotive track that is a perfect final piece on this stunning sampler.
This will be No.19 Musics final release for 2012 and it certainly closes the year in style with one of theirstrongest singles to date. Its also a truly exciting taster of whats to come from next years Social Experiment 3compilation, roll on 2013...
