Since 1996, Drumcode has grown to become an institution in the global techno scene, encompassing a radio program, an event series, and, most importantly, a home for the musical vision of it's artists and founder, Adam Beyer.

”It's not an easy thing to do over a 15 year period - to maintain an interesting, updated formula of something you started fifteen years ago,” commented Adam Beyer on his label Drumcode in a recent interview.

Since 1996, Drumcode has grown to become an institution in the global techno scene, encompassing a radio program, an event series, and, most importantly, a home for the musical vision of it's artists and founder. First founded by Beyer to self-release his own records, Drumcode is currently placed alongside the most influential techno imprints, and ranked among the world‘s best. “15 Years of Drumcode” not only celebrates this legacy, it propels the label further with a fresh injection of new and unreleased tracks from some of techno‘s finest producers.

In typical Drumcode fashion, “15 Years of Drumcode” celebrates the past by focusing on the present. There are no throwbacks, rehashings, or even remixes of the label‘s classic tracks. Instead, the 28-track compilation showcases only the newest and most exciting work of Drumcode‘s current roster, cascading between tough, thumping techno and housier, atmospheric arrangements. Yet even with its heavy variety, each track displays the kind of no-nonsense attitude that has become a hallmark of Drumcode‘s sound.

Amongst the talent featured on the compilation include of some techno‘s undisputed heavyweights; CLR boss Chris Liebing teams up with Brian Sanhaji on their stomping, warehouse-filling track “The Undertaking”. H-Productions founder Cari Lekebusch and Joseph Capriati collaborate on “Napoli 4 pm”, a hybrid tech-house track undulating with bass and metallic effects. There‘s also appearances by Soma Records founders Slam, whose tracks “Temperance” and “Sonic Scuffle” bristle with momentum and straightforward velocity. Adding to the roster of talent on “15 Years of Drumcode” are tracks from Dustin Zahn, Gary Beck, Jesper Dahlback, label head himself Adam Beyer, and many others.

Slated for release in late November, “15 Years of Drumcode” will be celebrated with a concurrent album tour across Europe‘s most prominent clubs featuring headlining sets by Adam Beyer and other members of the Drumcode family. While there‘s certainly plenty for Drumcode to reflect on over the past fifteen years, it‘s still the moment that counts.
