Berlin-based art collective REIF has joined forces with 15 artists and producers to create their first compilation, ‘REIF01’.
Due for release on December 10 this year, the 15-track compilation will explore techno in a new light, moving through from Jeff Mills heavier, old school sounds, to rRoxymore’s clean cuts centred around iconic Panorama Bar parties.

‘REIF01’ also features tracks from Asmara, Richard Kennedy, Sene, BOTO, and Juan Ramos, whose exclusive track ‘Iniciado’ is out today via the art collective’s imprint.
The new track from the Puerto Rican-American producer and resident of Berlin’s Cocktail d’Amore also comes alongside a music video conceptualised by 3D artist Omer Schwartz.
“REIF began as a celebration. Our primary interest in curating events was to craft multicultural happenings in which different expressions of thought, identity, play, and experience could intersect within intimate safe spaces,” said the Berlin-based collective.
They noted the intermission of the pandemic causing the collective to rethink and reshape the way that they created this first compilation, focusing heavily on the ethos of collaboration.
‘REIF01’ aims to “give form to varying cultural instigation strategies in order to investigate how we as a community can reignite the fires of night culture and create new ways of gathering as the world reopens.”
