The compilation features tracks from Hrdvsion, Basteroid, Metope and more, all composed entirely from samples of the German label's past tracks.
Areal is a Berlin-based label founded by the producers Basteroid, Metope and Konfekt. Over the past 12 years or so it's put out more than 200 tracks by an open-ended family of artists that's included Ada, DJ Koze and Fairmont among others, with frequent contributions from the three founders. 100 Years of Areal looks back on this catalog while also showcasing all new material: all but one of the 11 tracks are previously unreleased, but composed entirely of samples from older Areal tracks. Contributions come mostly from label stalwarts (Schleppstigg, Pan/Tone, Falko Brocksieper et al.), though some new names make the cut as well, including Wagon Repair artist Nathan Jonson, AKA Hrdvsion.
