VA – Snow Robots Volume 4 [SUNCTION043]


Formed in 1997, and inaugurated that year with a split 12” from new­comers and label founders, Solvent and Lowfish, this year Suction Records celebrates it’s 20th anniversary with the re­introduction of their famed Snow Robots series of compilations. While originally started as a North American answer to UK electronix labels like Rephlex, Skam and Warp Records, a sound that is still a staple of the current Suction Records catalog, Suction’s sound has also swerved into new territories, reflecting our love of dark ‘80s electronic music ­ synthpop, EBM, and beyond…. Snow Robots Volume 4 features an international array of artists, from Suction Records mainstays like Digital Poodle, June, Celldöd, and Ceramic Hello (with their much sought ­after 1982 vocoder anthem), to label­ favourites appearing on Suction Records for the first time: Beau Wanzer, Morah, and one of Skanfrom/Sleeparchive’s lesser known aliases, Civil Defence Programme.
