Lurking in the shadows, Ghostek prepares his new EP for release on 9/30/13. No Way Out comes via the brand new sub label of Project Squared, fittingly called Sub Squared. My headphones are rumbling as I listen to these four track previews. Names like “Jaws” and “Vampires” match the release titles theme with ominous precision. Ghostek has become a favorite artist of mine. His production skills are top notch, with the ability to create dark environments that are rhythmically, very inviting. I focused my attention on him recently, as I gathered research for his Disco Droppings interview. He doesn’t grant these conversations very often, so I made sure his feature was packed with fresh questions and links to all things Ghostek.

Came across this compilation and you guys gotta’ make it yours. Showcasing an impressive range of styles; from acid to 2-step, garage, house and techno, this collection of tracks comes from the label March’85. I’m working on a Disco Droppings interview with the label head Ghostek, and my research led me to this release. Happy to see that my friends Arctic and Minerva are featured in the tracklist. Arctic opens the compilation with “Kings”, a track I heard on his Soundcloud a while back, hyped to see it get a proper release. A stand out favorite for me on Tracks 4 My Mom is Ed Motion’s “Everyday”. Perfection.
