On the Radar: 3 Years of Gibbon Records (Exclusive World Premiere)

Progressive and tech-house label, Gibbon Records, have this week hit 3 years old. To celebrate, the Waveform Transmitter’s Ste Knight takes a listen to the release and offers an exclusive premiere of Lauterbach’s full album mix.

While it probably doesn’t feel like it to those involved in Gibbon Records, three years is a pretty long time. To coin an age old cliche, though, time flies when you’re having fun.

That is why Ben, one of the figureheads at the label (in addition to producing and releasing on the imprint as BenWaa) certainly seems to take the approach that producing and releasing music, be it his own or that of others, should be an enjoyable experience for everyone involved.

He certainly goes out of his way to make it so, eschewing the diva-ish, arrogant attitude adopted by many label owners and producers on the electronic music scene, and instead opting to be down-to-earth, friendly, and approachable. A rarity nowadays, in a scene that has become more about the politics than the music.

So, Gibbon Records is celebrating its third anniversary and is doing so in style. The label has sought out the expertise of German DJ and producer, LauterBach, to assist in the curation of GIBLP009, aka 3 Years of Gibbon Records Compiled & Mixed by Lauterbach.

The Munich selecter has trawled carefully through the Gibbon back catalogue in order to come up with a selection of his favourite tracks from a myriad of tech-house, progressive house, and electronica, kicking off with Pilofre‘s Moment and taking us through a sea of releases before finishing up on a double hitter from Unfug.

Not only has he curated the playlist, he has also produced a killer continuous DJ mix of the release – available only to those who purchase the album. Or, at least, it should be…the label have been kind enough to offer The Waveform Transmitter an exclusive premiere of the entire DJ Mix! Now if that doesn’t get your jogwheels moist we don’t know what will.

Here it is, in all of it’s glory…3 Years of Gibbon Records Compiled & Mixed by Lauterbach Continuous DJ Mix (tracklist below stream). You can purchase the record, here.
