The Future Sound of London’s long and varied history stretches back almost 25 years and as such a vast amount of unrealised material exists in the FSOL Archives.
Archived 8 brings together another 12 such tracks; in some cases these are completed but unreleased songs from that time, in others the songs have been reconstructed or enhanced and then further mixed to form the journey. This album is not just a collection of random off-cuts. It is a fully realised album, worthy of sitting alongside the rest of the band’s critically acclaimed work.
Electronic music enthusiasts have joined forces with the prolific label boss, Martin Boulton of Touched Music. The heart of the ambient tracks are delicate and intricate layers of sound design. The artists on this compilation have embraced complexity, intricacy, and unconventional approaches, which appeal to the depth and richness of the music. The tracks provide a stark juxtaposition to others, providing a rich and thought-provoking auditory experience. Anne Jackson
