Description\"Past, Present, Future\"... The title speaks for itself and wholly embodies the concepts underlying the comeback of A-TRACTION Records, Dijon's leading Techno/Electro label.
Marc Ayats, A-TRACTION Artistic Director, presents us with a key compilation of 15 titles.
PAST: Includes titles produced and remixed between 2000 and 2006 by label veterans such as Agoria, David Carretta, Chaotik Ramses, The Youngsters, Lady B, Scan X, Paul Nazca, plus Dima itself !
PRESENT: Includes confirmed artists and label favorites John Lord Fonda, Traumer, Veronika Nikolic, and Jonathann Cast. These guys are no rookies indeed !
FUTURE: They are young but they already have the label full trust. The compilation includes the promising Akeda, Sinusic, Geishaballs and Les Freres Henaff.
We thus find some rare Techno gems, remastered for the occasion, as the classic \"Alky\" of Chaotik Ramses, \"Tube\" the Youngsters anthem remix for the label, or the remix by Dima of \"Red X\" at the origin of the label. Then John Lord Fonda, with \"Monkey\", let know that he is very upset, Traumer stays deep with \"Drei\" and \"Waiting For You\" by Veronika Nikolic brings back to surface by performing a more melodic transition towards the latter part of the journey . Finally Geishaballs serves on a platter the bewitching \"Incline\", and Akeda proves in the remarkable \"John Lennon\" that the latter is not dead.
The cover on the other hand, is the reflect of the two characters behind this label. The red, ambiguous and fascinating, warm and energetic, lust and hell, it does not leave indifferent. The blue, wisdom and serenity, truth and loyalty, melancholy, it\'s the echo of life. All of that on paper could probably give a good person, creating a balance (re)giving rise to an entity proud of its past, conscious of the present, and mind occupied by the future.
An uncompromising compilation clearly like the label.
