RIYL: Bullion, Black Noi$e, Superstructure
Label: Ghostly + Adult Swim
If I was forced to make a list of my top 10 favorite record labels from this past decade, Ghostly International would make it in without question. Ghostly has released stone cold classic albums that helped reshape electronic music, like Tycho’s Dive, Com Truise’s Galactic Melt, Matthew Dear’s Beams, Shigeto’s Lineage, Recondite’s Hinterland, HTRK’s Psychic 9-5 Club, Tobacco’s Ultima II Massage, Black Marble’s It’s Immaterial and many many more. Yes, Ghostly is a music label, but they’re also a cultural institution, paving a path for artists, musicians and creators of every medium and handing them the megaphone.
Their compilation series with Adult Swim has reached legendary status with electronic fans. Their first comp in 2008 opened the world’s eyes to Tycho, Matthew Dear, School of Seven Bells and Dabrye before they had much of a following at all. These comps are among the most forward-thinking in the wide scope of the electronic genre, and the third edition with Adult Swim is officially up for preorder. Listen to all of the tracks below. You’re getting one of London’s finest producers, Bullion, and other amazing underground sensations like Black Noi$e and Yak. If you’re a Ghostly nut like me, these are essential. Only 1000 have been pressed on green and pink swirl wax!
