Compiled by Suspekt and Woodsman
The Australian festival summer is now in full swing, and Open Records is returning to deliver the release of their 2nd full length CD, 'Festivus' compiled by Suspekt and Woodsman.
From the tribal progressive trance and house Open Records has become known for, to new directions of deep, hypnotic techno and electro-influenced material, the compilation aims to capture both the classic and future sound of the Australian festival season.
Drawing on cutting edge productions from both international masters and homegrown talent to create a stellar collection of dancefloor stompers- Festivus is a return to strong form for the Australian label after the success of their first compilation Slow-Release.
Featuring 9 tracks from artists such as Fiord, Wombat, RPO vs David Weed, UandK (Tero Civill Remix), Embark, D-Sens vs Eegor, 2Kings in Motion, GMJ and Urban Monkeys- the sounds on Festivus represent both a maturation of the themes explored in their first compilation and a step in a new direction for Open Records.
Their simple philosophy of 'music first' means that each track has its own special place on the compilation, making Festivus a must for fans of intelligent progressive dance music, DJs and listeners alike.
