Out in March, Saul's inaugural instalment includes new music by Pearson Sound, Floorplan and Martyn.
The series will give artists full creative control to showcase all-new, exclusive music, be it their own material or tunes from friends, collaborators and affiliates. Each release will come as a mixed CD and a gatefold double-vinyl pack of select unmixed tracks, along with digital versions for both.
"My DJ-Kicks four years ago was comprised of entirely new music commissioned especially for the project, so I'd had a taste of this concept," Saul explains. "I think it's the idea of all the music being completely new that's hopefully most exciting."
The inaugural edition of Inside Out comes from Saul himself, and it features new cuts from the likes of Pearson Sound, Marquis Hawkes, Floorplan (AKA Robert Hood), Move D, FaltyDL, Martyn, Gerd and Sei A. "I definitely wanted this mix to work in a listening environment," he said. "I didn't want it to be a banging peak-time mix at all, although there is a ten to 15-minute section where it gets a bit tougher. I also wanted to try and create two peaks in the mix."
Future artists on the series are still TBA, though Saul says they include a UK label head, a UK producer making a mix using only his own music, and "a German producer who is working on a series of collaborations with friends combined with new music of his own." He also offers this hint: "None have worked with Aus Music before beyond a remix."
