Let’s begin the week with a great release from High Contrast Recordings. This album came out about a month ago, but I am slowly catching up on stuff I have not shared yet. The man behind the Tekelec label has put together this two disc mix to showcase some of the upcoming HCR releases. The end product is a great selection of techy tunes, including solid productions by Erick Strong, Fafaq, Jacob van Hage, Rafael Frost, and Orjan Nilsen. There are also three new songs by Ali Wilson, including a nice one featuring youngin Matt Smallwood. Two older tracks, Ernesto & Bastian’s Dark Side of the Moon and Lange’s Songless have been reworked by Marc Simz and Mark Sherry, respectively. Coming off the release of his Phenomenon album last year, Ali Wilson’s career is steadily gaining momentum. His style is a fusion of Marco V and Marcel Woods, which is enjoyably right down my alley. If you haven’t heard of Ali Wilson yet, check out his work on this compilation.
