Out on November 4th is a double download Mute label tribute compilation album “MuteResponse”. Released as a double compilation download album by NominalMusics, “MuteResponse” will include 22 tracks from a range of artists who have been influenced by this pioneering imprint. The album includes contributions from producer Gareth Jones, D-R-U-N-K (Oly Grasset), Simon Fisher Turner collaborator Espen J. Jörgensen and Vic Twenty next to material from other bands.

“MuteResponse” was compiled by music journalist and Mute fan Mat Smith to coincide with the 10th anniversary of his ‘Documentary Evidence’ website. Says Mat: “I wanted to find a way of highlighting just how important Mute has been for electronic music. It would have been really easy to ask for straight cover versions of Mute’s best moments but I really wanted to find a way of capturing the essence of what the label means to people instead. In the end I did agree to one cover version being included (MO75′s instrumental take on Depeche Mode’s ‘See You’). It’s a real mixture of dark and light, which was one of the things I really wanted to showcase.”

The compilations consist of exclusive tracks created just for the albums, unreleased tracks and tracks from recent releases that suited the theme of the project. The album will be released through Bandcamp on 4 November 2013 and will include alternative artwork from some of the contributors to the project as well as Simone Grant, who designed the first sleeves for Mute, and Olivia Louvel. “MuteResponse” was mastered by Chris Sharp (Concretism).
