Xhin, Ben Klock and Surgeon all appear on the Belgian label's first official mix.
Due out in June, the 21-track selection has been mixed by label boss Kr!z, who started Token six years ago. In that time the Belgian-based operation has earned a reputation as a no-nonsense outlet for brooding, offbeat techno. The tracklist of Token Introspective reveals a mix of big name remixes from the likes of Oscar Mulero, Surgeon, James Ruskin and Ben Klock, as well as original material from the label regulars Xhin, Phase, Ctrls and Inigo Kennedy. There's also a track from Berlin favourite (and recent Breaking Through subject) Rødhåd.
"When the scene for this sound of techno somehow collapsed around 2005, new records from my favourite artists became harder to find," Kr!z explains. "Convinced that a lot of these people were sitting on some great music, I started thinking of creating my own platform. I never could have thought that years later I would have been able to release so much great music by those artists. Some of them have become good friends, family even."
