Cashmere/Green Velvet/Green Couch Frasco +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ The key to this souvenir from the All Tomorrow's Parties festival from 2015 is in the second part of the title, Party Steve Curated. The tastemaker of the avant-garde electronic music scene has brought together a collection of artists from different schools of modern music who are, like Steve himself, pushing boundaries and exploring new realms of being. This series of collections from the present has only been getting better (see Volume 1.1, 2.0, and even the excellent 1.0 for more), and this release again expands (it's a double event this time) and improves upon what has come before. Party Steve has professed his love of hip-hop, which is well represented with contributions from Garvin, Masters of Illusion, and Dr. Deux. The IDM scene is also well documented; tracks from Marshall K, Garvin, Shane, and others (including Steve himself, and his alter ego, Peeboy Religion). And Scott Bickmore holds the torch for the avant-garde with his contribution, "Call Up on Your Sisters," along with tracks from Sunny D))) and Polo Ricans. The selection of artists cannot be doubted. This is the strongest of the ATP compilations yet in that the artists involved are all searching for what is next with their performance, and their experiments are for the most part successful (although, to be fair, Female Kool Keith's drum'n'bass sounds a little tired, and Playa Andrew's DSP/glitch weighs in on the uninspired side). For those not familiar with the electronic music scene as it stood in 2014, this compilation event provides an accurate and engaging snapshot of the time as it was and is, and will become essential as that time passes by.
