Digital Traffik has been knocking it out of the park for a whole 12 years now. To celebrate, the Italian label serves up a special anniversary compilation packed with heat across 11 essential cuts that have been released already over the years.
It's an impressive roster, including the likes of Tania Vulcano, label head AudioHell, CLiVe, Alex Henning, Neverdogs, Bimas and many more.
Climax from Tania Vulcano is first and sets a deep and bubbly tone with supple drums and nice percussion riding over the top. It builds in pressure and has dark vocals stitched into the groove. AudioHell then comes correct once more with Together, a slick electronic house cut with warm and soul infused pads, then Doomwork gets fully spaced out with a pad laced and dreamy house cut that will truly hypnotise you.
NBGD is a more techno leaning cut with rattling dub chords bringing the tension, Basti Grub gets tribal and languid with his Tingog and Mambo Cafe from CLiVe is a gorgeously deep and spiritual cuts with suspensory pads holding you in mid air as wet claps surf over rubbery kicks.
The latter half serves up bubbly house goodness from Jose De Divina, a remix from AudioHell that gets deep into your brain and originals from Alex Henning, Neverdogs and Bimas that offer inventive new tech house styles which will standout in any set.
This is a great compilation that shows just why Digital Traffik is such a strong label
