31st August 2011 marks a year since Futuresequence's launch, I knew I wanted to do something to celebrate this but wasn't quite sure what. Asking our Twitter, Facebook and Google+ followers for suggestions, one idea was to put together a compilation of tracks contributed by various artists. After a quick think, I decided to do it and SEQUENCE1 got underway. That was just over three weeks ago
The response I received from artists was genuinely overwhelming, I've been bowled over by the number of people wanting to be involved - artists who we have interviewed, reviewed, had mixes from or had been in contact with in other ways. There is a mixture of exclusive tracks, edits of existing tracks, some from forthcoming releases and from past releases. In all instances I couldn't be happier the tracks, and the lineup we have.
My intention with SEQUENCE1 is to celebrate not only the 1st year of the site, but the breadth and quality of the electronic and experimental music 'scene'. There is such a strong sense of community within this field, and it's great to feel part of it. I'm very excited about SEQUENCE1, this is why we do what we do isn't it? Because this music excites us.
