due to some errors, three tracks have been replaced since "homework - year 1" has been online:
- modelbau track (artist was misspelled),
- sabri meddeb track (it has been mastered a bit louder),
- enrico coniglio track (replaced twice! first there has been a problem during the downsampling, then a wrong version of the track was uploaded).
all the tracks are now as they should have been in the first place.
if you have downloaded "homework - year 1" in the last weeks, you can now download the three individual tracks, no need to download the complete compilation again... sorry for the trouble!
"homework - year 1" is the first volume in an ongoing series of compilations which will hopefully be released at the end of each year and will gather unreleased tracks recorded/finalised during the year by as much taâlem artists as possible.
the idea came from a cassette compilation named "opus 1" released in 1992 by the french label les nouvelles propagandes featuring brume and internal fusion amongst other french artists. the idea was to release each year tracks by the same artists. there was sadly no other editions...
inspired by this concept, we've asked every artist who had a release on taâlem during these past 15 years to contribute an unreleased track recorded/finalised in 2016.
a total of 52 artists have sent us a track for this first edition. most are still active, some have changed their project name, others got back from their retirement for this occasion!
we have unfortunately not been able to gather everyone... some artists have stopped creating music, some have disappeared, others we lost contact with and couldn't get in touch again, others didn't have enough time to contribute...
we'll try to gather even more artists next year!
this compilation is dedicated to akifumi nakajima and robert gray brownstead.
taâlem wishes to thank all the artists involved for their trust and support during all these years.
a big thank you to our loyal customers too!
this is a taâlem digital release - almp3.6 - december 2016
