Lost tapes from Khan Arrive on Libertine Traditions
Berlin-based Yoshi has always been known for his affiliation to rare records. After starting Libertine with Italian countryman Sbri, the label quickly embodied a sound of tastemaker wax. The 'Traditions' catalog takes that ethos to another level as Libertine bosses connect past with future on hand-stamped double packs. Rave pioneer and 'Lord of Acid' Khan is undoubtedly a founding father of the Belgian rave scene. Bred in an age where crates of wax were a necessity rather than preference, the lost tracks on TRAD08 are a fresh today as they were in 94.
With only 200 of these hitting the racks this week, this Libertine special delivery is an easy sell. Journeying through acidic samples crafted as a wholesome warehouse hits, these 6 tracks are packed with tones from the past. A milestone release in the Traditions cat, 09 is a set filler on its own with retro feel. Just in time to be a Sumer anthem, you can likely find a few of these on the racks of Hardwax Barcelona. Keep watch for more from Yoshi and the Libertine crew, they've got you covered when it comes to crate essentials.
