Published Apr 30, 2010Since its inauguration in 1999, Michigan-based electronic imprint Ghostly International have pushed the boundaries of sound with top-shelf releases from the likes of Matthew Dear, Christopher Willits, Dabrye, Deastro, Loscil, School of Seven Bells, the Sight Below and numerous other experimental greats. To celebrate the passing of the label's ten-year milestone, it is putting out a new compilation that looks back on its catalogue and forward to releases ahead.
The compilation is called Horizon Line/Ghostly By Night, and the label is touting it as "a state-of-the-label address featuring ten remixes and reinterpretations of Ghostly classics and ten new, forthcoming, and unreleased songs."
The first disc is called Horizon Line, and features remixes of classic Ghostly tracks. Who wouldn't want to hear Max Tundra deconstruct Skeleton & the Girl-Faced Boys' "Git," or Dabrye and Doom's "Air" through Madlib's messy filter.
As if that weren't enough, Ghostly By Night fills the second disc with new material from upcoming Ghostly releases, including tracks from Deastro, Matthew Dear, Solvent, the Sight Below and Pale Sketcher (one of the many aliases of Jesu's Justin Broadrick).
Horizon Line/Ghostly By Night will be released as a double-disc CD on May 4. The whole compilation can be bought digitally now through the Ghostly Store.
