Fracture's label will put out its first compilation is out in March.
The label was founded by drum & bass producers Fracture & Neptune back in 2009, and has since become a source for uptempo experiments, first from his Dawn Day Night alias and later from the likes of Sam Binga, Moresounds and Sully.
The latter three all appear on Gradients with brand new tracks, and Sully's 2015 tune "Helios" also gets a remix from Phillip D Kick, the footwork-influenced alias of Om Unit. There's a vintage archival cut from Fracture & Neptune, a breaks track from dBridge and a tune by Stray, along with contributions from new signings Touchy Subject and Tehbis. Fracture also collaborates with DJ Earl for "Statisfyee," which is streaming now.
"Each of the 13 tracks has been tested in the clubs for the past year to ensure an all-killer-no-filler experience," the label says.
