A triple-vinyl overview of the Malmö label's catalog, featuring the likes of Shed, Silent Servant and TM404, is due out in March.
Based in Malmö and curated by Ulf Eriksson, Kontra-Musik is well-regarded for championing a broad range of techno, house and experimental music. There's been some 60 total releases to date, including Tyler Friedman's new Vulkalaunai / Wallouian 12-inch, whose lengthy techno productions served as the latest reminder of the label's adventurous ethos.
Due out in late March, X comprises 11 tracks that Eriksson has picked out from the Kontra-Musik catalog. Prepared-turntable trio The Durian Brothers lead off, with efforts from TM404 (AKA Andreas Tilliander), Frak and label fixtures Jonsson & Alter also counting among the compilation's original material. A handful of remixes come courtesy of Silent Servant, Shed, Jus-Ed and Anton Zap.
Along with the triple-vinyl pack, X will also get its own digital release.
