Eskimo Recordings announce Eskimonde retrospective

Belgian imprint Eskimo Recordings have revealed details of what can only be described as a bumper box set to commemorate a decade of releasing music.

Entitled Eskimonde, the impressive looking 70-track retrospective is spread across some five CDs and includes a raft of Eskimo classics, some newly commissioned remixes and two mix CDs from label figureheads The Glimmers, with Mo and David both delivering individual mixes that represent their favourites from the label.

The Ghent based label grew out of the popular parties overseen by The Glimmers, rising to prominence at the turn of the century with some wondrously diverse  eponymously named compilations selected by Mo and David that paired together music new and old (Eskimo Vol IIII is a favourite here) and evolved into a fully fledged label releasing an extensive array of compilations, albums and twelve inches. A brief glance at the Eskimo discography will present releases from the likes of Smagghe, Optimo, Rub N Tug, Lindstrom & Prins Thomas, Daniele Baldelli, Aeroplane and so many more, and their role in the current popularity of both contemporary and vintage disco sounds should not be discounted.

The forthcoming 5xCD box set naturally represents their considerable back catalogue, and while there are plenty of instantly recognisable tracks among the first two CDs (Morgan Geist’s lovedub of Ron Basejam, “Boney M Down”, Terje’s Reverso 68 remix to name but three), it’s the CD of new and unreleased remixes from the likes of DJ Harvey, It’s A Fine Line and more, as well as the two Glimmer mixes, that undoubtedly makes Eskimonde an intriguing prospect.

Eskimo Recordings will release Eskimonde on November 5.
