For 20 years, 2020Vision has stood as a bastion for quality house releases, having put out over 30 albums and 250 singles during its two decade run. The list of acclaimed artists who have walked though its gilded doors reads like a deep house fanatic's dream, spanning Maya Jane Coles, Paul Woolford, Fred Everything, and so many more. What started as a small imprint and afterparty locale hosted on a farm in the UK countryside has grown into an enduring institution for the sounds of the underground.
To celebrate their 20th anniversary, 2020Vision has decided to look towards the future with the Content album, a compilation that will feature all new works from a spread of heavy-hitters (Psychemagik, Simian Mobile Disco, and Groove Armada to name a few). Mixed by longtime associate Ralph Lawson, the 36-track collection drops June 30th on CD, digital, and vinyl.
Today we have the first sampler from the album, a track from the celebrated French house artist, Franck Roger. His deep house contribution, "Too Blind To See", typifies the compilation's sound through a downtempo vibe, shimmering house flares, and perfectly placed vocal samples. If this is the first listen to Content, I'm not sure we can handle the rest...
