Kill Ref Low Frequencies are putting in an enormous techno entry in the form of a 24-track compilation album released in 3 parts. Stream the labelhead’s killer techno mix of the CD album in full, exclusively for Monument.

Kill Ref is aiming to start something brand new with this mega-release. This extensive set of techno floor-fillers, named Saturn Phases, is split into 3 parts of 8 tracks each. Across March, the release starts with the first issue on the 12th, followed by the 19th and 26th. Monument is now streaming Kill Ref’s own limited edition CD mix of the tracks:

Saturn Phases marks the label’s birthday. This is effectively KR/LF Records’ chance to make a big statement.  Levels of sheer aggression are here, only reigned in by the level of precision. This is not your ordinary techno by any means. When Italian underground techno artist Kill Ref invented the label, it was to share a love of variety. Heterogeneity is undeniably present, but it doesn’t compromise unity.  Techno could learn a lot from this compilation. A sense of assuredness varnishes every transition on Kill Ref’s mix CD.
