2012 sees Clan Analogue celebrate its twentieth anniversary with a series of releases and events. To mark this epochal milestone, Clan Analogue has a unique new compilation lined up for release in May. This top-secret project involves Clan Analogue artists both old and new exploring the heritage of one of the greatest pioneers in Australian electronic music.
In the meantime, to launch the festivities Clan Analogue has retrieved from the archives two releases initially compiled in 2002 to mark the collective’s tenth anniversary – the Clan Recordable compilations.
Clan Recordable was originally released as a free promotional compilation commemorating the 2002 tenth anniversary of Clan Analogue, compiled by 2SER’s Jonathan Sykes. The tracks were available for a limited period for download from the Clan Analogue website with the CD artwork also downloadable for printing so that fans could burn their own CD copies.
Clan Recordable features styles ranging from trip hop to minimal techno to breakbeat, forming a snapshot of Australian electronic artists active in the early part of the decade. Hear Deepchild collaborating with FourPlay and many other highlights from artists such as Nerve Agent, Zog and Null Object.
Clan Recordable was so popular on its first release that it was quickly followed by Clan Recordable 2, collecting together exclusive tracks by artists such as Disco Stu, Audio Cephlon and Telafonica in another diverse and upbeat collection.
Clan Analogue has now made these albums available for free download:
