Marking the winter solstice Darkfloor Sound once again presents their annual compilation, raising money for the National Autistic Society. We continue what we began in 2015 and resurrected last year with a double EP release (part 1, part 2). As with all the releases in this series, it is available under a pay-what-you-want model, to choose your own donation level, please visit our Bandcamp.

Our Winter Solstice compilation welcomes new artists to the Darkfloor Sound record label who bring with them a diverse range of lush to dark sonics.

For our 2020 edition we present artists from Japan, America, Australia, Ireland and the UK. Go Hiyama, Yuri Urano, Dodssang Tempel, Warcrimes, subduxtion, Hedchef, Sunken Foal, Si Begg, Herd, and Khost feat. Stephen Mallinder. Their music packs beautiful drone, field recordings and noise, to slamming maximal electro, downbeaten electro steppers, broken industrial, dub techno, and intense claustrophobic drum work.

All monies raised from the sale of this release will be donated to the National Autistic Society – the UK’s leading charity for people on the autism spectrum and their families.

Ancient Methods (Ancient Methods, Hands Productions, Sonic Groove) "I really like the Lag + Forest People track" OAKE (Downwards) "Loving this! Really do! A1 (Vacated) is absolutely stunning. I'm bouncing up and down in my office chair right now. I think that one is my favourite. But all in all the release is great. " Orphx (Sonic Groove, Hands Productions, Hymen) "Yeah, thanks again for that EP. I liked it all (except maybe the B2) but the A2 was my fav - killer track. Hope to use it for a mix when I have time to make another one." Bas Mooy (Mord, Planet Rhythm, Mote-Evolver) "Lag + Forest People's track is my pick" Truss (Avian, Perc Trax, R&S Records) "Lag and Vacated tracks are both great. Very strong EP overall." Israel Vines (Eye Teeth, Borrowed Language) "Hot EP all the way 'round, but my favourites are the Lag + Forest People and Ruins cuts. Super ace those two." Coefficient (Duality, Labrynth, M_REC) "A nice varied EP this one. Will play the Lag + Forest People track the most. Also like the deepness of the Matt TdK track too. Good stuff!" Dronelock (Shadow Story, Weekend World) "EP is great." Jesse Somfay (Borealis) (Detroit Underground,  Origami Sound) "I have just had a full listen of the EP and I think it’s very nice work. I preferred the more abstract A Side tracks overall." Data Transmission 02.04.2015 "Mechanistic Overlap, the latest vinyl print from, underground cult label/radio station/blog Darkfloor Sound is a beastly slab of dirty techno influenced madness from five distinctly different, but aesthetically similar artists. And when a record gets big thumbs up from Objekt you know you are onto a winner. Vacated’s ‘RM2 (re-edit)’ - a filthy, dancefloor infusion of Akkord-esque drum patterns that have been dragged through a hedge backwards, Perc and Truss style distortion treatments, washes of reverb soaked industrial atmospherics and a hard, repetitive, subtly modulated bassline that will properly merk up any dance."
