It’s the dream lineup in compilation form, as RAW brings 5 years of friendships and experience together for a mighty fine 16 track compilation.
After more than 5 years in the techno scene as a promoter, label, and agency, the Paris based collective RAW launch their first vinyl and digital compilation, including 16 original tracks from a well-curated list of some of the best producers in the scene.
The release features several early RAW label contributors, as I Hate Models, Under Black Helmet and Hadone are joined by respected and inspirational artists such as Perc, Somniac One, Thomas P.Heckmann and Clouds to name a few, while blooding in the new rising talents of VII Circle, Makornik and Danilo Incorvaia.
Entitled Gemstones, this V/A is divided into 4 colored vinyls representing precious stones (Obsidian, Ruby, Emerald and Sapphire), promoting a hard and harsh sound from industrial tones to emotional sonorities.
Gemstones will also become a RAW sub-label only with vinyl release, so this gives us a taste of what we can expect to see and hear down the line for future releases.
