Dance Across Borders has sectioned off part of its original name basically because with its third album it has expanded into new territories beyond Montreal. This platform emerges with a double proposal; the first is musical, publishing an album every year that sonically represents the philosophy of this label and that also helped in the two previous releases to show a small part of the artists located in this city in the southeast of Canada. The second proposal is based on principles of solidarity, as all the profits from this compilation will be donated to Solidarity Across Borders, a non-profit organisation that works to protect human rights, and which has been active in Montreal since 2003.
This third volume diversifies the artists’ backgrounds with a total of 13 producers appearing on the album’s 6 tracks, hailing from Montreal, Tokyo and Vienna. As for the overall style of the release, it also varies quite a lot, with the degraded electronica of Esse Ran & S.Chioini, the voluble techno of Kazuho & Ottoman Grüw, the polyrhythms of CMD & Vigliensoni, the industrial whip of Brusque Twins, the vertiginousness of Laced & No Airbags and the forcefulness of Hel_Hax & 2 Pigs Under 1 Umbrella.
Release date: November 15th, 2022.
