Encompassing as many styles as it does, Total 11 is a fine example of quality control and is one which makes you dance as much as dream and laugh as much as cry: off-kilter and experimental electronica isn't often as classy as this. As well as new music, there are new production teams - It's A Fine Line, AKA Ivan Smagghe and Tim Paris, who contribute a tobacco stained, rock infused and bleepy beauty; Three Lions, a group made up of Jorg Burger, Superpitcher and Rebolledo, who add some stoned Calypso vibes and have Michael Mayer on saxophone, as well as recent label newbies Walls who get tightened up and techno-fried by Allez Allez. Then there are subliminal tech tones and seductive, raw synth funk from Kompakt staples like Superpitcher and Ada battling for your attention next to the broken pianos, oscillating pads, muffled growls and sci-fi patters of favourites like DJ Koze or The Field.
