The date 15th April should be etched on your mind because that's the day these artists killed it at London Fields Brewery. Beforehand the artists got together to create this CD of their work. They must have brought all the stuff seperately as there's no way they could have created this over pre-gig nibbles. It's a lovely collection though from A New Line (Related)'s gorgeous mellow techno to ISAN's classic bleepery. You need this.

8/10 Clinton Staff review, 20 July 2016
Well in the end I just went an opened the thing. So excited I was by hearing three unreleased A New Line (Related) tracks that I stuck my finger in the shrink wrap and clawed the thing open.   Indeed the three ANL(R) tracks are worth the admission price alone particularly opener ‘A Finger But No Pulse To Put It On’ which showcases a softer sound than autumns tougher edged ‘Our Lady of the Perpetual Fucking Succour’ with floating vocals over underwater techno bass lines. ‘Lip Lifted’ is as simple as music gets, sounding somewhat like a malfunctioning skipping CD the track allows extra shards of percussion to infiltrate its repeating stutter but that’s it. The final ’Ten Good Summers In Me’ is a propulsive deep techno workout with almost afro rhythms.   But to talk purely about A New Line (Related) would be unfair on all the other artists contained here. Cult European electronica bods Isan get ready for what we’re hoping is a new long player with a couple of short but sweet examples of their playful bouncy rural tronics. Synth explorer R Elizabeth supplies three workouts of varying degrees of scariness including the very sweet early day synth tunefulness of the title track here which adds dreamy vocals and reminds me of MJ Guider or early Julia Holter, Paco Sala are the oddest of the four artists at work here producing a kind of minimal avant disco that sits uneasily with the soothing music elsewhere but maybe that’s the point. I’m certainly warmed by their 'Gifts of the Bloom’ a lovely piece of slinky electronica with gorgeous cut up French vocals.   Overall an interesting compilation which has been made to commemorate a live performance by all the artists enclosed.
