Matt Tolfrey has mixed the first edition of Through the Eyes Of, a new compilation series on Classic.
According to a press release, Through the Eyes Of asks friends and longtime fans of Classic to highlight some of their favorite cuts from the label in a mix, with an emphasis on lesser known tracks. Tolfrey claims to be exceptionally familiar with the long-running label. "I own every Classic record ever sold so this made the final track listing decisions very interesting," he says. "I stayed clear of anything too obvious and dug deep to find those B side gems that always make you stand out from the pack.”
In addition to 14 selections from Classic's back catalogue, the mix features four exclusive remixes by Tolfrey, Pezzner and Sam Russo. Tolfrey also threw together a mini-collage of Classic tracks to start off the mix.
Classic was founded by Luke Solomon and Derrick Carter in 1995, and went on to release records by dozens of American and European house artists. Despite their original intention to release just 100 records, the label officially re-launched last year. Through the Eyes Of is Classic's first mix series. Matt Tolfrey's inaugural edition will be only be available digitally.
