Stroboscopic Artefacts reveal details of first true compilation

The label shares Caterina Barbieri's “Virgo Rebellion” from the release titled Flowers From The Ashes: Contemporary Italian Electronic Music

Stroboscopic Artefacts are to release a new compilation in April featuring a selection of new music from Italian electronic artists. Back in 2013 the imprint released its Stellate limited edition series featuring four artists per release, but Flowers From The Ashes, Contemporary Italian Electronic Music is said to be its first artist compilation proper.

Artists featured are Stroboscopic Artefacts’ label boss Lucy, Silvia Kastel, Andrea Belfi, Marco Shuttle, Ninos Du Brasil, Alessandro Adriani, Chevel, Lory D, Caterina Barbieri, and Spazio Disponibile’s co-founder Neel.

“There is a sensibility of decadence and corroded grandeur etched within its four album sides, reminding us that historically ‘decadent’ times have nonetheless resulted in some of the boldest acts of individual and collective creativity,” says the label. “Though many of the artists involved have set of residence outside of their native Italy, all contribute here to make a captivating portrait of a shared spirit and cultural memory.”
