It’s time to celebrate! At catalogue number 20 Uncanny Valley extends its compilation-concept to 12 tracks spread over three records (or as a bundle if you prefer digital). The tracks will also be released as a CD compilation. With new music by label-regulars like Jacob Korn, Cuthead and Credit 00, friends like RVDS & K’Alexi or Filburt and fresh talents like Götterkreis & Steve Kasper it is an exciting ride along the winding roads through the Uncanny Valley. The three records are visually linked with distinctive artwork by the ever-reliable Paul Waak.
Part 2 sees the long awaited return of Jacob Korn whose “Der Don” is his first production for Uncanny Valley since his acclaimed album “You & Me” in 2012. With overlapping strings and thrilling beats it’s an epic dance floor banger and Jacob Korn at his best. Dresden’s Götterkreis and Steve Kasper put their focus on percussions and dub techniques. Their “Puli Kali (Rooted Dub)“ is a well-executed combination of dubby Techno and funky UK bass music. Also new to the label is Lounge 44 who works up a Soul tune into a climatic House track in best cut-up fashion. Kornhead aka Jacob Korn and Cuthead throw together their preferences for pumping beats and jazzy samples which results in a laid back House track that actually wanted to be Hip- Hop jam.
