Datapunk chief Anthony Rother gets behind the decks to mix a second volume of past and forthcoming label hits.
Rother rifled through Datapunk's back catalogue of electro-tinged techno for the label's first 'We are Punks' compilation, released in May this year, and six months down the track it seems the electro kingpin is ready to show off his newest recruits.
We are Punks 2 features more of the label's hair-raising hybrid of electro and techno. Across two discs, Rother rinses tracks by Xenia Beliayeva, Billy Nasty and Umek from the label's recent 'Various Punks Volume A' EPs alongside label classics from himself and Gregor Tresher. The second disc features unreleased cuts from Miss Kittin & The Hacker and Artist Unknown as well as trainee punks Robert M, Frank Kusserow, Ziel100 and Daniel Wilhelm, which will also be released separately on two vinyl EPs.
