[DD15075] V/A – Collected: Into The Dark Lands – Origin
2016 shall be the beginning of a new era for Dark. Descent., now operating independently, forging its way into the future – and a perfect time to take a deep breath and look back on a history of ten years, pushing dark and industrial hardcore and techno forward.
“Into The Dark Lands – Origin” collects no less than 50 tracks by prolific artists like The Relic, Embrionyc, Cubic Nomad, Sei2ure, Ragnarok, Sound Abuse, Starving Insect, Sidephex and many more, lots of classic tracks as well as previews of what is up and coming and some exclusive material as well, so this serves as a perfect introduction to the Dark.Descent. sound as well as a welcome addition to the devotee’s collection.
Label boss Maurice Pinkster, who is known as industrial hardcore pioneer The Relic, and also as a producer of many electronic styles under the Cubic Nomad moniker, has been operating Dark. Descent. to enormous acclaim since 2006. From industrial hardcore to a wider scope of sounds and influences from techno, trance, IDM and ambient, all have found their way into the Dark.Descent. family: Along with the parent label, the offspring consists of the distinctly defined Spirit of Progress (dark techno), ZUUR (acid), Dark Industry (leftfield experimental) and Blacklight Sessions (techno trance).
Named after the label’s party concept, which has gone into eight editions so far, “Into The Dark Lands – Origin” showcases what the international Dark. Descent. label roster is all about, from classic tracks like Zanthrax’ “Dark By Nature” over more recent hit tracks from Dep Affect or Moleculez to excerpts from the praised albums by Sidephex, Starving Insect or Mindwalker, from techno darkness by Energetic X (aka Embrionyc) to acid madness by 2Junxion, this is simply excellent value for little money. (Re)discover the dark lands!
