The Drumcode Collection launches this year to celebrate the label’s consistently outstanding output, highlighting some of the finest releases in the DC back catalogue, which deserve an extra chance to shine. ‘Aurora’ kicks off the first edition, a 10-track compilation celebrating all the preeminent female artists who’ve made music for the imprint. It hits hard from the get-go with Amelie Lens’ piercing acid masterpiece ‘In Silence’, before fiery contributions from Ida Engberg, ANNA, BEC and Charlotte de Witte follow. Juliet Fox’s ‘Was Beautiful’ signals a shimmering change of gear and precedes powerful and uplifting cuts from Nicole Moudaber, B.Traits and newcomer Shelley Johannson, who all add their touch. Enberg’s ‘Junoverse’ ends proceedings on a trippy after-hours note, reinforcing the breadth of the Drumcode sound.
