Beneath, Visionist and Epoch will feature on the London label's first full-length compilation, which shines the spotlight on lesser known talent.
The 14-track release opens with "New Wave," a three-way collaboration between Beneath, Visionist and Wen, with each producer also contributing a solo track. Label bosses Dusk + Blackdown also feature, as does LHF member Double Helix, plus a number of artists (Fresh Paul, E.m.m.a., Rabit and Moleskin) who will appear on Keysound for the first time.
"This compilation is a new chapter for the Keysound family; reflecting a new wave of hungry, talented but under recognised producers building their own sounds," said label co-owner Martin Clark (AKA Blackdown). "There's light and shade, momentum and arrest, tenderness and anger, strangeness and familiarity—there's even a club banger whose drums run backwards. The only thing that unites it is a 130bpm heartbeat. I'm not sure where it's all come from or where it's all going but you can feel the sense of momentum building."
