EMERALD & DOREEN’S 2nd Label Retrospective „Emerald & Doreen 200′ – MIXED BY JERRY BOUTHIER

Eclectic by nature, iconoclastic by design, electronic German label Emerald & Doreen unveils second label retrospective, the ‘best of’ its recent 100 releases, mixed into an extravagant journey by French dj/producer/sound-designer Jerry Bouthier.

Jerry says: I think every single track is worth its salt, not a dull one in sight, that’s great, well done, that’s what we want, the best of E&D

From shoegazzin house to electronica, lyrical synth pop to nostalgic italo-disco, esoteric ambient, melodic prog-techno, dreamy indie, girly reggae and everything else in between, ‚Emerald & Doreen 200? breaks ground without leaving out the essential: solid tunes you wanna listen to again and again.

With such a gargantuan output – E&D drops a digital EP or an album most weeks – a regular summary is more than an option, it’s essential. As such ‚Emerald & Doreen 200? is a lot more than the sum of its ingredients, because meticulous and perfectionist to the core Bouthier has sculpted and polished an evocative mix, slicing off sections here, skimming a little fat there in order to deliver a seamless mix focussing on character and emotion, fine-tuning expertly thecreations of twenty four talented new artists from more than fifteen countries into a truly special mix that highlights the importance of Emerald & Doreen’s freestyle, no dogma stance.

Jerry completes:

“What I love most about Emerald & Doreen is that its artists aren’t too sure what box they should be put in. On the same EP you might get this, and this and that, always a mix of styles, which I find truly refreshing at a time when so much music is confined to rules and categories.

This label is about spirit and what matters most: being independent, D.I.Y. and trans-genre rather than sticking to a particular sound and tired formulas. There’s real honesty there, you can tell all the artists featured are more interested in doing it ‘their’ way than actually making money from it, an crucial factor when it seems that today all people in music are chasing dollars.

Emerald & Doreen’s output is frantic to say the least, so it makes sense to stop every so often, pull all the best tracks into one continuous mix and say ‘here’s the stuff you can’t do without, check it out! Cos it’s a label really worth paying attention to.’
