...ending the year on a high 2012 - a compilation from weareallghosts and friends
I love a good compilation for two reasons - they are a great way of discovering new music ... and as I like to listen to a variety of music, a well curated compilation with a number of contributors gives me the variety I seek.
This time last year I never dreamed I would have my own netlabel … and I certainly never dreamed I would be putting out my first compilation on said netlabel … a compilation that showcases wonderful independent talent.
Some of the artists featured on this compilation have released music on weareallghosts and I am indebted to them for their generosity in working with me.
Others have been included because they are simply favourites of mine and I wanted to use this opportunity to showcase their talent too. This compilation is more than just a celebration of the musicians on my netlabel … it is a celebration of truly excellent music within the ambient and electronic genres.
I hope, through this compilation, that you will be introduced to the work of artists you previously hadn't heard of … and through this introduction you go off and find their work. Independent music needs all the help it can get and I am proud to do my bit.
I love music. I especially love the music featured on this compilation and my hope is … at the end of 2012 … that you will love it as much as I do.
My thanks go to everyone who has, in some way, made weareallghosts what it is today. Here's to 2013.
The compilation is available for free over at Archive AND also free over at Bandcamp. Have a wee listen below ...
