Planet Mu celebrate 20th birthday with a new boxset

15.07.15

Planet Mu is celebrating 20 years of life with a new, 50-track boxset.

The independent label, founded by Mike Paradinas (aka µ-Ziq), has released influential, experimental electronic music from the likes of Venetian Squares, Luke Vibert, Boxcutter, and Shitmat in its lifetime. In recent years the label has championed Chicago footwork (releasing albums by RP Boo, Traxman and the like) and its international mutations (Machinedrum, Kuedo), as well as abstracted grime (Mr. Mitch), leftfield pop music (John Wizards, Heterotic) and anything in between.

The triple CD compilation features old, new, and unreleased tracks and remixes, and comes complete with a 100 page(!) book charting the history of the label, written by Rory Gibb.
