Various Artists

Social Sculpture


Released: 13th July 2018 | 8 track techno ep

For the first time, Volte-Face's BleeD releases a Various Artists compilation, featuring friends and close family of the label. Named after Joseph Beuys' concept of 'Social Sculpture', which serves to harness collective potential in an attempt to transform society (in some small way at least!), the release features eight different artists who embody the BleeD sound of the last few years of activity.

Once again, the tracks are aimed at the more challenging and open-minded techno floors, although it makes for a fulsome listen from start to finish. From the unbridled celebration of Volte-Face's 'Plus Four ++++'; to the functionally atmospheric likes of DJ Nobu's 'Fish' and Refracted's 'Depth Charge'; the more intense shades of Opuswerk's 'Transhancement' and BLNDR's 'Doepfer Exercise'; the outright pounding 'Shit Business' and 'Dig 6' by Rote (Daniel Avery & Volte-Face) and Peder Mannerfelt respectively; culminating in the trance-infused melancholy of AWB's 'Nimh'.
