Triple colored vinyl LP pressing housed in a gatefold sleeve. 20 years!? Brighton/London-based label Catskills Records has aged well and doesn't look a day over 10 years old. Featuring 23 Catskills mini-classics that bounce nimbly between the atmospherics of the track that kicked it off with Indian Motorcycles by Sonorous Star (label founders Khalid and Amr Mallassi), to the dance-floor beats of Drop by Bushy, Featurecast and Black Grass, the drum explosions of Pepe Deluxe, the ethereal soundscapes of Husky Rescue and so much more in-between! Almost every genre of music from the last 20 years is represented, but that's to be expected from a label that always - and continues to - run the musical spectrum from Hip-Hop to Punk, Country to Prog Rock; as long as it's got the "head-nod factor" (TM) they'll spin it till their necks break. Also included are 2 new tracks, exclusive to this compilation: The majestic, isolation of "My Shelter" by Husky Rescue and "Go, Girls, Go!" by Pepe Deluxe, a breezy throwback to Pepe Deluxe's origins in Hip Hop and breaks culture. The album features stunning widescreen artwork from Ante Kemppainen (previously known for designing much of the look of the Angry Birds games) and designer Tero Ahonen that depicts the true organs of Catskills Records in epic fashion.
