This sprawling compilation, W+D's first, is an aural and aesthetic extension of The You Are Here Festival (on.fb.me/TheMazeBK
), an enormous indoor Maze installation and conceptual music festival organized this past summer at Secret Project Robot in Brooklyn and then again in early fall at Westgermany in Berlin. Featuring contributions from 22 artists who performed in the Brooklyn Maze, this massive 92-minute comp features a wide range of styles and genres, from local underground hip-hop to noise-dub, swaggering rock n roll to electro-pop.
Going beyond simply featuring artists who played in the Maze, the tape also evokes the visual experience of being inside of the Maze installation with its multiple overlapping layers of simple line art creating a depth-perception-confounding, three-dimensional web. Packed with exclusive tracks, 19 in total, this unique release is a must-have for fans of the compellingly weird and unexpectedly accessible.
