This new compilation series is dedicated to showcasing emerging talent, and for the first instalment, Soma maintains a local focus. Neoma is from the label's hometown of Glasgow and makes his Soma debut here with the high-paced, tranced out "Abduction". Lisaloof is another Glaswegian techno talent, who impresses with the gritty, slamming industrial of "Down The Vaults", while Kairogen's "Mineral" marks a radical departure in sound, with its layered, mesmerising ambience. It's only a temporary blip, however; Balrog drops "Tokyo Drift", a visceral, acid-soaked slice of hardcore while Joe Farr delivers a pummelling panel beater in the shape of "Beaky".
