Dekmantel launches vinyl-only techno reissue series

Dekmantel is releasing a two volume compilation comprised of classic Djax-Up-Beats cuts this spring.

Described as, "prime picks from the Djax-Up-Beats vaults, circa '90-'97", the first volume will release on February 4. Spanning house and techno, it features eight essential 90s tracks from the likes of Glenn Underground, Felix Da Housecat, K-Alexi Shelby, Ismistik (AKA Bjørn Torske) and more.

“Dekmantel are proud to announce the re-issue of some of the most era-defining trans-Atlantic, techno cuts from the early nineties, thanks to cult label Djax-Up-Beats,” the label explain. “Founded in Eindhoven at the turn of the 90s, Djax-Up-Beats quickly earned an international reputation for being a key source of Chicago house, acid techno, and floor-filling, heavy-hitting, straight up underground 12"s".

The second instalment in the series is expected to release in April. Both volumes will be vinyl exclusives.
