The Norwegian record label run by Joakim Haugland celebrates its 25th anniversary with a mix album that’s a selection of just some of the best the label has to offer.
It’s mixed by Thomas Moen Hermansen (more commonly known as producer/mixer/DJ Prins Thomas). This is a 3 CDs / 80 tracks / almost four hours of great and eclectic tracks. Some crazy dance music, some mystic chanting, thrums of instruments being taken to their limits then circling gently to land. Music box instrumentals float and glide, ominous fragments intercede, ambient soundtracks shimmer and merge setting moods for the dancefloor beats to come. Invocative and evocative.
The Movement Of The Free Spirit is a 3-disc mix comprised of 80 tracks and 3 hours and 40 minutes of music featuring artists including Sonic Youth, DJ Harvey, Studio, Yoshimi (Boredoms), Kim Gordon, Oneohtrix Point Never, Todd Rundgren, Stereolab, High Llamas, Neneh Cherry, Ricardo Villalobos, Four Tet, The Orb, Kelly Lee Owens, Lindstrøm, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Biosphere, Peter Brötzmann, and many more
