Saved Records present the fourth installment of their acclaimed collection sampler series, Collection D. Featuring a diverse selection of artists, only two of which are close members of the Saved family, the ten-track collection welcomes a host of new friends with a heavy focus on new and emerging talent. Perfectly summing up the ethos of the label, these fresh producers unleash a collection of uncompromising, underground club-leaning bombs.
Regular Saved cohort &ME gets the collection underway with label-mates Rampa and Re.You's fresh remix of 'Blitz'. Rob Cockerton, a permanent fixture behind the decks at Saved parties over the years, puts his first record out here. Mulletover's Geddes makes his first appearance on Saved with the frenetic "Standup" just as rising Italian duo Macromism, New York's Vanjee, Lancaster and Denney & Guthrie all make their Saved debuts.
Collection D has a stripped back and heady aesthetic running throughout its entirety. Jacking beats, driving basslines and pumping 303 rhythms feature heavily, creating a spine of powerful bottom end sonics.
There is plenty of energy, old school vibes and a darker edge on display across the ten tacks too, making this the most underground collection of the series yet. [info from pd]
