Boomkat Product Review:
FatCat’s contemporary classical wing, 130701 rustle up exclusive pieces spanning their roster, from well known to new artists, covering 15 years of their illustrious catalogue and featuring previously unheard music from Johann Johannsson, Max Richter, Ian William Craig, Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch, Dustin O'halloran, Set Fire to Flames, Hauschka, Sylvain Chauveau and more...
"With its fifteenth anniversary approaching on 13th July 2016, 130701 is celebrating with the release of a compilation featuring eleven exclusive tracks - one from each of the artists to have graced the roster over the past fifteen years, plus three new signings - Ian William Craig, Olivier Alary and Resina - whose first 130701 albums are each set to appear this year. Curated and compiled by 130701’s David Howell, none of these tracks has previously seen a physical release.
Initially established as an outlet for Montreal-based Set Fire To Flames (a 13-piece collective featuring members of Godspeed you black emperor!, Fly Pan Am, etc), the label has been home to some of the most recognisable names in the broad-reaching post-classical field, having introduced the likes of Max Richter and Hauschka, as well as becoming a home for pianist / composers Dustin O’Halloran, Sylvain Chauveau, and recent Golden Globe winner / double Oscar nominee Jóhann Jóhannsson.
