IDMF068 IDMf Retrospective Vol. 2

The IDMf Netlabel is honored to present our 68th release

Released - 25th May, 2024


The IDMf Netlabel continues to honor our history with the release of our second installment of the Retrospective series.

Retrospective Volume 2 is the mark of an incredible foundation for the label, showcasing our favorite tracks from Between the Silence and the Story (IDMf010), 80Hz Sacred Surplus (IDMf034), Sounds for Skeletons (IDMf039), Beyond the Listening Booth Vol.1(IDMf025), The Black Fog EP (IDMf031), Are We Dead Yet? (IDMf050) and many more. You can hear many different styles and sub genres in this mix yet there is a flow, smooth as liquid that binds them all together on this refreshed compilation. All the tracks were remastered at Millenium Mastering in Sydney, Australia and the work Darren has done to breathe new life into these tracks is unparalleled. It was a lot of fun working with him in the studio, hearing it all unfold in real-time!

What a stellar release. The amount of love, care and attention that was put into this, the previous and the rest to come is astounding. Big thanks to @Manton for combing through the catalog and compiling these tracks into a wonderfully coherent release. They sound great and have been completely elevated by the remaster at Millennium.

Long live the IDMf Netlabel.

I am beyond honored to have God Tank featured on this release, and for it to be given such careful attention with the mastering. Thank you to Millenium Mastering! I cannot believe how good this whole album sounds as one cohesive unit! Thank you so much @Manton for bring this project to life with the love and care that you have. Long life IDMf!

It’s hard to choose a favorite on this one. Love the new choon, @tuneboxii! I will admit that @RFJ’s Cincuenta has always been a personal joy nugget every time it comes on. Phobik’s track hits hard. CyStemCell… I didn’t even know about that one till this release (it came out after my time) and I am blown away by it. Same with Silent Strangers. I f’n love them all… Shit man, this is a great collection we got right hurrrrr.

So glad to see all of these tracks are on streaming services now!

Much love. Long Live IDMf.
