Experimental best of compilations from Mute

June 23, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Mute are about to release the first 2 installments in the “An Introduction To…” compilation series. The series will launch with “This Is The Balanescu Quartet” and “Konnecting… I Start Counting, Fortran 5, Komputer” (showcasing the pure pop side of the duo Simon Leonard and David Baker through their three incarnations). The series aims at providing an introduction into the world of some of Mute’s artists ‘whose broad body of work would benefit from an easy entry point’ as the label says.

Forthcoming releases in 2012 include Crime And The City Solution, Anita Lane, Fad Gadget, Cabaret Voltaire and Add N To (X) with more to follow.
