Stroboscopic Artefacts releases X – Ten Years Of Artefacts, a 13-track album curated by Lucy, the nom de techno of Luca Mortellaro. It celebrates ten years of his label by boldly confirming its raison d’être: a continual redefinition of modern techno.
X – Ten Years Of Artefacts is a various artists album in which the label’s key artists respond to its tenth anniversary with fresh compositions. These tracks’ timbres, tempos and moods differ greatly yet – somewhat improbably – they seem together, ideologically unified. The album will be later complemented by a special remixes EP, with four new reworks of pivotal back catalogue material from the label (Donato Dozzy, Caterina Barbieri, Xhin and Klock).
On X – Ten Years Of Artefacts, Mortellaro features solo as Lucy, in collaboration with Rrose as Lotus Eater and together with Speedy J as Zeitgeber. (Rrose also appears alone with The Myth of Purity). Shifted, Efdemin, L.B. Dub Corp (Luke Slater), James Ruskin, Denise Rabe, Adriana Lopez, Chevel, Alessandro Adriani and Serena Butler each feature, representing a group of singular artists whose relationships with the label range from years to months – Stroboscopic Artefacts’ past, present and future must exist simultaneously.
