The label will celebrate its five-year anniversary with a nine-track release.
Simone Gatto and Andrea Santoro's wide-ranging techno label, based in Berlin, has put out about two dozen records since launching in 2011, and 5 Years Anniversary will be its first full-length compilation. Nine tracks, from a mix of label affiliates and producers making their Out-er debut, will see release on both double-vinyl and digital formats.
Efdemin, Terrence Dixon, Aubrey and The Analogue Cops have all pitched in. Juan Atkins teams up with Orlando Voorn, who appears under the alias Frequency, continuing a connection that dates back more than 20 years—the two producers wrote "Game One," a 1994 cut from Atkins' Infiniti project. Irakli, half of I/Y and founder of the Berlin party series STAUB, partners with Raw Waxes and Inkblots boss Haiku.
The label will also head out on an international tour. Though lineups are still TBA, Out-er showcases have been announced for Detroit (El Club on October 31st), New York (Industry Of Machines on November 12th) and Berlin (Griessmuehle on February 3rd), with more in the works.
