Drumcode‘s output only continues to widen as the its musical message reaches further corners of the globe. Assuming greater amounts of artists under its wing, the Adam Beyer-led label maintains a busy release schedule with a heavy arsenal of hard-hitting techno.
The A-Sides series was created to showcase premier tracks from new & old Drumcode artists whose outputs might not coincide with the label’s regular release schedule. Having released the fourth volume of the series in January 2016, Volume 5 dropped six months later, on July 21. This edition of the compilation contains an extended list of 20 tracks in total which pays homage to a significant milestone for Drumcode: its 20th anniversary.
Usual label favorites make up the track listing this year, including Jay Lumen, Kaiserdisco, and Adam Beyer himself. Newcomer Boxia will also appear on this edition, making his Drumcode debut, while Timmo, and more cement their names as prominent acts entering the scene.
