Mute launches an new music compilation called: ‘An Introduction To…’
“An Introduction To…” is a series of Mute compilations. Neither a “best of” nor a “greatest hits” but rather a series of compilations giving a revealing introduction to the world of Mute’s Artists.

“This is the Balanescu Quartet” is a 12-track album including re-interpretations of Kraftwerk classics and seminal works composed and selected by the Balanescu Quartet, one of the most visionary string quartets of our time. “Konnecting” is a 15-track collection of electro-pop songs bringing together for the first time the works and three guises of electronic pioneers David Baker and Simon Leonard – I Start Counting, Fortran 5, Komputer.
