To celebrate this 20-year anniversary, ASTRALWERKS RECORDS will release of a strictly limited edition box set, entitled "ASTRALWERKS: Music in 20/20," produced exclusively for RECORD STORE DAY on APRIL 20th, 2013. The box set spans 20 artists, over 20 years, and includes 20 tracks pressed onto vinyl flexi-discs. Included are exclusives or rarely heard bonus tracks from AIR, DIAMOND RINGS, HOT CHIP, KINGS OF CONVENIENCE, KRAFTWERK and THE KOOKS.
"ASTRALWERKS is proud to celebrate this important milestone for the label and to document our history in artist development and ground-breaking music," ASTRALWERKS GM GLENN MENDLINGER said. "It is incredible to be a driving force in electronic music and DJ culture for 20 years starting with THE FUTURE SOUND OF LONDON, THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS and FATBOY SLIM, leading into such iconic legends as KRAFTWERK and PET SHOP BOYS and landing where we are today with DAVID GUETTA and SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA. This anniversary box set is really only a snapshot, when compared to the entire canon of extraordinary artists we have worked with. The tracks included are a mix of staff and fan favorites, commercial highlights and unsung rarities."
