17 years after first releasing a cassette EP from label boss Marsel van der Wielen under his Peel Seamus guise. Delsin has now hit the landmark category number of 100. Truth is. taking into account choice re-issues and specials such as the recent house series. there have already been scores more than 100 releases.
Nevertheless, in that time the Dutch label has become synonymous with a wide range of timeless sounds from house to techno to dub to electronica, nurturing and championing some of the most respected names in the scene, all of which can now be enjoyed on 5 separate, various artist vinyl EPs or one impressive two disc compilation.
Far from just a collection of tracks, the 100DSR compilation has been carefully curated to tell the tale of Delsin. Each record conveys a slightly different part of the story – be it house, techno, beats or electro – yet every one is tied together by the label’s own underlying sense of desolate melancholy.
Across the five EPs and complete CD collection there are tracks from newbies and old favourites alike, including Sawlin and Delta Funktionen, John Beltran and Bleak, Redshape and Convextion, Gerry Read and Claro Intelecto.
As has done Delsin itself over the years, this special series of releases looks to join the dots between the past, present and future of techno.
