After a 4-year break, Gottwax, the record label arm of the world renowned Gottwood Festival, returns with an epic 30-track compilation album featuring some of the most respected names in electronic music.
Gottwood festival has been a key fixture on the UK festival scene for a full decade now and with this year’s gathering put on ice, the team behind the revered Welsh woodland gathering have decided to reanimate their Gottwax record label. To kickstart their relaunch the label presents a gigantic triple sized compilation featuring a plethora of artists with a connection to the festival, ranging from its oldest allies to its newest friends, and representing a spread of talent from global superstars, underground sensations, musical journeymen and fledgling talent.
The 30 track compilation, compiled by the festival owners alongside their new label manager Geoff Kirkwood (aka Me Me Me records boss Man Power) includes such household names as Roman Flügel, DJ Tennis (in collaboration with Joseph Ashworth), Margaret Dygas, Voigtmann & John Dimas (aka VOIGT.MAS), Ruf Dug, Ron Basejam , Appleblim and Maxxi Soundsystem, nestled alongside the best and brightest in emerging talent, such as Sweely, Anna Wall & Corbi, Bobby, Adam Curtain and Harry Wills.
The result is a musical journey that evokes the scope of Gottwood festival itself, and which takes the listener through Balearica, Experimental Music, Disco, Funk, Garage, Bass Music, minimal sounds, and many of the varied forms of House and Techno..
Released digitally on July 20th via Beatport, Bandcamp and Spotify, the compilation will be the first entry in a regular schedule of releases, with a series of artist EPs set to follow which throw further light on the artists close to Gottwood’s heart.
