HKE, Telepath, Pixelord, Halo Acid, Sangam and more feature on the new series.
The Divine Chaos marks the first new music from the London label after it announced a cryptic ownership change in August. It's a four-pronged compilation with the first volume, Nirvana Is Leaking Into The Mainframe, due out today. The albums, which Dream Catalogue describe as "a global halo spanning all continents," will feature new tracks from almost every past Dream Catalogue signee, as well as new names. Among the highlights are Dream Catalogue founder HKE and many of his aliases—Broken HKE, Sandtimer, Subaeris, AIR Japan, Buried Angel and more—along with wosX, Halo Acid, Telepath, Ganz Feld, Pixelord, Diamondstein, Thought Broadcast, Raj Kapoor and Sleep Reprieve.
There's no full tracklisting yet, but all in all The Divine Chaos numbers 141 tracks.
The new albums also appear to disrupt Dream Catalogue's planned schedule. Back when the ownership change was announced, reissues were to be followed by the End Series—16 releases planned by HKE before his departure—and then the Chaos Era. There's no official word yet as to the label's plans beyond The Divine Chaos.

Dream Catalogue will release Chaos 1: Nirvana Is Leaking Into The Mainframe on October 5th, 2017.
