Trying new things is something Rebel does enthusiastically. Whether it be merging with another online music resource to create Super Rebel 2.0 this past winter, pushing sounds out of our label to newfound acclaim, re-vamping our website design or creating a limited edition cassette tape series, it’s safe to say we enjoy putting our ideas out there and crossing our fingers that others will dig them too.
It is with this enthusiasm that we are delighted to bring you our first very own compilation release, Heretic Compilation Vol. 1, with twelve carefully selected tracks offering up support from different corners of the electronic music world. The sounds are unquestionably varied–from the woozy, off-kilter sonic trip through Ashtre Jenkins’ “Whydafuqmyshirtsobig?” to the mellow and saccharine “Sunrise” by Rebel’s very own Etch–yet form part of a greater Rebel whole. Old school and futuristic, glitchy and smooth, downtempo chiller and dancefloor pleaser–we’re proud to say our Heretic Compilation Vol. 1 is pretty damn non-discriminatory as far as sounds go, and we don’t think you’ll be disappointed with our selections.
