A field of wheat sways in the breeze, somewhere in England. In the distance, you can just hear a stream burbling over soft rocks, mingling in and out of occasional birdsong. Sun dapples across the field and the forest onset that sits beyond it, a dark green curtain filled with mysterious incense and Earth. It's a pleasantly warm Summer day, and just as you begin to relax, your eye catches sight of an unlikely sitting chair inside the thicket. You walk toward it, curious, to find as the wheat stalks part that it is next to an old wooden record player, outfitted with bronzed detailing and a reasonably large burnt orange speaker. It doesn't appear to be plugged in, and yet, you already know it will work. At that perfect moment, you notice on the ground next to the chair a 12x12" dark green box with a cream-white bakelite handle, its color matching the deep woods behind the field perfectly. Opening the container carefully, you find five shellac discs adorned with black and gold center labels, showing floral patterns in an art nouveau style. No text, besides the initials D.O.M., seemingly engraved into the discs themselves. You tenderly place the first one onto the mystical turntable, and lower the metal arm to its etched destination. A sublime chord blooms out of the orange speaker, and seems to nudge you softly down into the chair. Like a drug, the ambience washes over you, timestretching the birdsong and flanging the sunbeams themselves. From here, you can't remember much more - just a fleeting feeling of familiarity, like a place you visited as a child and barely remember. Suddenly aware of yourself again, you finish reading the description of Oxynucid's newest album on Bandcamp, and think to yourself: "Did I already press play? Have I been here before?" Intrigued, you dare to press the play button (again?), just to find out...

Astonishingly good electronic tunes for a tenner and for a good cause. As well as titans 808 State, Autechre, Plaid, B12, etc... the lesser known artists shine. Get and enjoy! Played Quandary Wand at my wedding after Halcyon by Orbital. :) Egg Wizard
