Archive Records for its 15th years anniversary decided to celebrate properly with a compilation entitled The Crystal Collection. It displays some of the works from the label and its artists that go mostly from 1999 to 2004. Not necessarily the most popular tracks from the catalogue, but a selection we strongly believe has to be heard in 2014! During this period the label developed the work of artists like Domu and Nubian Mindz with various singles and albums as well as releasing one-off projects from the likes of Dego, Theo Parrish, Marc Mac, Kirk De Giorgio, Alex Attias, Modaji, King Britt, Paradox, Future Beat Alliance, various Bugz in the Attic members till the more recent Phil Asher full-lengths ‘Phlash and friends’ and ‘House Phillerz’. Archive made its mark for its futuristic yet soulful edge, and here you can hear why! All tracks have been carefully re-mastered, and the selection includes few unreleased/special edits/surprises. Artwork courtesy of Dutch master Delta Inc.Merchandise, events and special collaborations linked to the anniversary compilation to be announced. One step back and two steps forward…
