The annual compilation from Germany’s Project Mooncircle label has always set a high watermark, but for 2013 they’ve pushed the boat out with 33 genuine innovators from the analogue/electronic crossroads. These are inventive little cuts that are strong on melody, from the stuttering IDM pop of Deep Shoq’s ‘Lights Down’ to a Game Boy love story on Blossom’s ‘The Longest Journey’. Things get experimental with the rustling ambience of ‘Maybes’ by Deft, while the likes of ‘Charcoal’ by Bruises - all hybrid bongos and slow, mewling Theremin squeals - sound like world music brought back from unexplored countries. A generous but concise sounding end to what’s been a fertile year for the label.
