Nick Galemore combs through the entire Kindisch catalogue, from the very first record in 2006, up to soon-to-be-released material, compiling a new story with a goal: exit the comfort zone and broaden the horizon.
«I was asked to put together a compilation for the label. Being the product manager, I knew a lot about the more recent releases. But the older stuff I didn't really know too well — that was before my time, so to speak. I took the unfamiliarity and ran with it — I wanted to push my own boundaries a bit, to step into a new kind of genre and see what happened. „

“What I ended up with is a mix that spans over nearly a decade, and crosses a few genre lines. Nearly every track in the mix is an edit I made for the mix. For example, I took vocals from Raz Ohara's 'Whitmey Na' (first released in 2007) and put them on Ben Hoo's opening album track 'Marea', released just a couple months ago — and it's funny how well they worked together. I mean, two very different styles, from 2 different decades fit together like it was produced together… in my opinion anyway. In some places I have 3 or 4 tracks playing at the same time, some old, new and unreleased things too — and they work together so well. I have a totally new sense of respect for music now. „
“I also signed some new things, specifically for this compilation. Just 1 day before I locked myself in my studio (aka my kitchen) I got a mail from DJ T., he sent over a link to some tracks from Jobez & Echter — two dutch guys I had never heard of before. But I was totally blown anyway and signed them immediately!»

«Another new signing was 'Yesterday' from Less Hate. Now I had this — and a couple other tracks — for a while, he sent them right after his Kindisch release 'Soul Doubt'. I was in love with them for quite a while and thought, 'this is totally my chance to use them!' Keep a lookout for the EP coming in a few weeks with a couple more — I highly recommend that one.»

«And let's see… what else? Oh yes, Mr. Jonas Woehl! I originally wanted to make a remix of Pepe Acebal's 'We Will Stay Together' because that vocal line was way too good to pass up — I was talking with Jonas about it and he thought the same. He was interested in it too so I sent him the parts. 2 days later he sent me his remix… which turned out much better than mine! I signed his and have no regrets.»

«Lastly, I have been a fan of Alex Dimou for quite some time now — he played at a party we had organized last year and soon after he sent me some demos — really nice stuff coming from this guy. We signed some of his stuff to Get Physical (look out for the EP 'Sweet Berries' soon!) and so I asked him if he had anything else for me — he sent over 'Ashburg' with the note 'I like to end my sets with this.» I thought I would follow his advice, and I think it was the right thing to do."
«All in all, I am super happy with the way everything turned out — because of course I had my doubts (mostly about myself — if I would be able to pull it off or not… ). In the end it turned out so much better than I had hoped it would. If you took the time to listen to it — and read this wall of text — thank you. Thank you so much. I really hope it brought you some sort of joy, though I know one can't satisfy everyone, so if this is just not your thing, well that's OK too, maybe next time.»
