Eleven into Fifteen - A 130701 Compilation
FatCat Records' 130701 imprint has played a pioneering role in the development of today's vibrant post-classical scene. It has introduced the likes of Max Richter, Hauschka, and Set Fire To Flames, and has been home to Sylvain Chauveau, Johann Johannsson, and Dustin O'Halloran. With its fifteenth anniversary approaching on 13th July 2016, 130701 is celebrating with the release of a compilation featuring eleven exclusive tracks - one from each of the artists to have graced the roster over the past fifteen years, plus three new signings - Ian William Craig, Olivier Alary and Resina - whose first 130701 albums are each set to appear this year. Curated and compiled by 130701's David Howell, none of these tracks has previously seen a physical release. Initially established as an outlet for Montreal-based Set Fire To Flames (a 13-piece collective featuring members of Godspeed you black emperor!, Fly Pan Am, etc), the label has been home to some of the most recognisable names in the broad-reaching post-classical field, having introduced the likes of Max Richter and Hauschka, as well as becoming a home for pianist / composers Dustin O'Halloran, Sylvain Chauveau, and recent Golden Globe winner / double Oscar nominee Johann Johannsson. Curated and compiled by 130701's David Howell, none of these tracks has previously seen a physical release.
