Intec Digital have confirmed they’ll be re-launching the ‘Pure Intec’ series on April 8, with ‘Pure Intec Two’ – the long-awaited follow up to the hugely successful ‘Pure Intec,’ released back in 2004.
“Jon and I thought it was time,” says Carl. “We’ve been working hard the last few years to get Intec back to the forefront of Techno. We have a great roster, with very talented DJs that deserve recognition. This is our way of celebrating the label’s success, showcasing some of our artists, and of course putting out some amazing tracks.”
Part 1 will be mixed by Carl himself, bringing a whole load of unheard remixes from his acclaimed album, ‘All Roads Lead to The Dancefloor’ by some of Intec’s finest, plus others from outside the label, including Jim Rivers, Ben Sims, Yousef, Foamo, Tomy Declerque, Reso, Nicole Moudaber, Sharam, Layo & Bushwacka! and Loco Dice.
Part 2 comes courtesy of Jon Rundell – his first compilation, and will feature forthcoming tracks from Intec by artists from the label, brought together exclusively for the first time. Artists include The Junkies, Victor Vera, Nicole Moudaber, Daryl Stay, Dosem, Pirupa, Alex Sibley, Marco Bailey, Carlo Lio, Tomy DeClerque, Mark Reeve, Ben Sims and Jon himself, with Digital Primate.
‘All Roads Lead to the Dancefloor’ broke the mould – the first ever self-updating USB album released in phases, with fans paying one price and continuing to receive parts of the album itself as well as other pushed content throughout the year. Following the critical acclaim of the USB and the success of the album, it was the obvious format choice for ‘Pure Intec Two.’ ‘We are returning to this technology as we believe in the concept.’ says Jon.
‘In this day and age it’s important to offer people something different. We 100% believe there’s life left in electronic compilation releases. The demand is there. It’s about presenting things differently and offering fans value for money.’
The concept is simple, fans who pay for the USB with the first compilation included, also receive every other Pure Intec compilation, as they are released – the music being automatically ‚pushed‘ to their USBs.
Jon Rundell: ‘When you look at the number of compilations, the number of hours of music you’ll be getting, from an array of Intec artists, buying the USB is well worth the money. And it’s a chance for people to embrace a cutting edge new digital music format that is still also tangible.’
Traditionalists have no fear, the compilation will also be available on all download stores as a bundle, with Carl’s album remixes being released as individual downloads at a not too distant date.
And finally, to coincide with the release, Intec have confirmed a brand new series of nights across London and Europe for 2013. Kicking off this April, with an album release party at one of London’s coolest venues, they’ll soon be confirming details of a string of dates in the capital, Ibiza and beyond, giving Intec the opportunity to showcase their talent and musical ethos like never before.
