Eglo Records Volume 1
Celebrating 4 years in existence, the time has come for us to look back over our catalogue with this deluxe double CD.
Featuring 23 tracks, including four new exclusives and previously hard to find vinyl only releases, Eglo Records Vol.1 will be the label's debut LP and our first time in a CD format. Chronologically highlighting key releases by Floating Points, Fatima, Funkineven, Shuanise, Mizz Beats, Arp 101, Gifted & Blessed and more, the CD runs from our first 7 inch release in 2009 to the Shadows EP in 2011. Featuring a 20 page booklet and gold print gate-fold design by Kay Shin, the album chronicles the birth of the label through the photos' of Vent Fury and a foreword by label boss Alexander Nut.
The unique and soul filled aesthetic of Eglo encompasses the diasporic sounds of House, Hip Hop, 2Step, RnB, Broken Beat, Boogie, Acid, Techno and beyond. Based in London but taking on a global view, the label's core is made up from a circle of nomadic artists. Displaying our colourful past whilst simultaneously launching into new territories, this release is set to be followed by fresh projects including recent signings Dirg Gerner and Strange U, the infamous Floating Points and the first lady of Eglo Records, Fatima. The latter of whom has been locked away adding finishing touches to her debut album. More info on the labels history can be found inside theCD's booklet.
To celebrate our 4th year and the release of this CD, Eglo Records will be holding a special birthday event in early June (details TBA) followed later in the year by Eglo stages at both Outlook and Dimensions festival.
