9/10 Ant Staff review, 04 October 2013
Two decades of the Downwards label is cause for celebration and certainly deserves a commemorative release. Downwards has forged its own path with zero compromise, from it’s beginnings in Birmingham as an outlet for experimental electronic music through to becoming somewhat of a techno powerhouse in the late 90’s and early 00’s. Twenty years down the line the labels profile has peaked since expanding into post-punk/ goth/ darkwave territory. Throughout Downwards have introduced new artists like Surgeon and Tropic Of Cancer whose sounds are in some ways worlds apart but somehow they both belong at home on the label, all sharing a common, strong and stark sonic and visual aesthetic.
Artists representing here are old and new from the labels first artists Antonym and Mark F through to Anthony Child (Surgeon), Regis (here remixed by Substance) and up to present day with Samuel Kerridge and Oake who both recently put out some ultra dark and brilliant works on the label, and even Concrete Fence which is Downwards chief Karl O’Connor’s recent collaboration with Russell Haswell. A mixture of previously available/ out of print cuts and new exclusive shit. No Downwards fan will want to be without this clear vinyl double pack on their shelves but it’s also a useful tool for any newcomers to the label. Happy Birthday Downwards.
