Various Artists: 18 Year Anniversary Compilation (DMDIGI011)
The Darkmatter Soundsystem 18 Year Anniversary Compilation (DMDIGI011) features new tracks by WMX, Pink Abduction Ray, Minion, Fiend, Dimentia, Baseck, and Abnormalities. We dedicate this compilation to Darkmatter artist Mike Harrison (Bad Timing) who passed away one year ago. We celebrate and remember Mike's dedication to experimental music and video art, his friendship, and his contributions to Darkmatter. The 18 Year Anniversary Compilation cover is a generative design made in Max/MSP of Mike's Neomania EP (DMDIGI008) with the Darkmatter Soundsystem logo by Sansculotte. On July 27, 2019 in Los Angeles, the 18th anniversary underground celebration included E-De-Cologne, Moment Trigger, Alex Pelly, Baseck, Diskore, Fiend, Minion, Nemeton, Shrill, and WMX.
