The label will turn thirteen later this year and has had almost 250 releases since its inception, including tracks from Tiga, Jeff Mills, Dopplereffekt and Dave Clarke. None of them are to be seen on this selection, however. As DJ Hell tells it, this compilation is all about "the new Gigolo sound," and not the old, electro-tinged style, which means we have new Gigolo producers with a few surprise twists along the way.
The first is Herman Schwartz's instrumental version of Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black," which replaces the vocals with a slow synth line. Ectomorph also contributes an edit of a Jamal Moss track, and Peter Kruder (of Voom:Voom and Kruder & Dorfmeister fame) sees the first vinyl release under his own name in over eight years. "Visions Ltd" will touch down on wax close to the release date of the compilation, which also features cuts from Lopazz, DJ Pierre, Motor and Abe Duque.
As you'd expect, the tracks are all personally selected by label boss DJ Hell, who took over a year to select the tracks that would make up Eleven. He's also set to follow up 2003's NY Muscle album later this year—proof that the 46 year old hasn't lost his passion for the club scene just yet.
