As the famed London establishment toasts ten years in the game, the first vinyl sampler from their chunky two disc compilation is out, featuring four choice cuts for those who want the tunes on wax. First up Joakim is in a particularly soaring mood with "EHAR", all analogue tweakery and cyclical rhythms with a distinctly optimistic feel. Meanwhile Panoram is laying down a more jammed-out, jazzy flavour of downtempo on "Alpha Mamara", which Psychemagik follows on from with the sumptuous disco strings and Schifrin funk of "Triumph of The Gods". The Draughtsman meanwhile gets into a much more mechanical frame of mind with the last track, falling into a broken beat and letting rich harmonies slowly form from hushed tones, exercising great patience and subtlety in the process.
