“With this new album, remix EP and tour, now is the moment for Stroboscopic Artefacts to look fondly at its past while drawing breath, reenergised, and hinting at new chapters.” 

Berlin based experimental techno label Stroboscopic Artefacts is set to celebrate its tenth year with a mouth watering 13 track compilation entitled X — Ten Years of Artefacts. Curated by label founder and owner Luca Mortellaro aka Lucy, it will contain brand new tracks from some of the key artists featured on it over the years.

Besides a new solo outing from Lucy himself and his two collaborations, with Rrose as Lotus Eater and with Speedy J as Zeitgeber, it features a diverse roll call of some of techno’s best boundary pushing experimentalists. Rrose also contributes solo and is joined in that endeavour by Shifted, Efdemin, Luke Slater’s L.B. Dub Corp, James Ruskin, Denise Rabe, Adriana Lopez, Chevel, Alessandro Adriani and Serena Butler. A special remix EP featuring reworks by Donato Dozzy, Caterina Barbieri, Xhin and Ben Klock of key tracks from the label’s back catalogue will be released at a later date.

X – Ten Years of Artefacts is out on the 19th November and the celebrations will include a tour featuring a selection of the aforementioned artists plus the  likes of Kangding Ray, Silvia Kastel, Yotam Avni, Lady Starlight and Oake. It will take in dates across Europe and the US either side of the release. There will also be a special Berlin event on the 19th December at MONOM with the line-up yet to be announced.
