Ricardo Villalobos, Shanti Celeste, Call Super and Tony Allen are all onboard
This year, Dekmantel mark their tenth anniversary and to celebrate, they’re releasing ten EPs throughout the year at a rate of one a month, starting from today.
The choice of artists is significant. Dekmantel have called on figures who have been there from the very beginning or had a shaping influence on the respected crew. Confirmed for tracks in the series are Ricardo Villalobos, Huerco S, Tony Allen, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Fatima Yamaha, Legowelt and Tom Trago – among many others.
Italian ambient musician Gigi Masin is responsible for inaugurating the series, with Vakula and Roman Flügel coming correct for the B-side. The second instalment will showcase Berlin techno outlier Call Super and Bristol’s own Shanti Celeste, with the release marking Celeste’s first for the label. New York techno powerhouse – and Crack Amsterdam launch party headliner – Levon Vincent will do the honours alongside Legowelt, Joey Anderson and Central for part three.
