Innovators: Future Techno


Man, I love finding interesting compilation albums. They reveal so much about the era they were made in. Nineties dance compilations don’t appear on wax in the bargain bins too often unfortunately, but I found this nice double album for a pound this week. No inner sleeves and a few little scratches here and there, but nothing that detracts too much from the sound quality. The inners were easy to fix – I just surreptitiously swiped a couple from some other records in the pile (handy tip, there ;-).

This was released in 1995 on Breakdown Records, a compilation-only subsidiary of Suburban Base, which was a label more commonly associated with the jungle and drum ‘n bass scene. But this one focusses on deep, minimal Detroit-flavoured techno from the Robert Hood school. Familiar names include Mike Ink, Christian Vogel, DJ Hell and Air Liquid. As the sleeve notes state, “Listen with an open mind and enjoy Innovators – our musical excursion”.
