Liner Notes

Steel celebrates roughly 12 years since Yann Novak relaunched his father’s record label Dragon’s Eye Recordings with a compilation of unreleased tracks from some of the label’s recent additions, newcomers, and mainstays. Named after the traditional eleventh anniversary gift (due to miscalculation and a love for the cover art delivered by Jake Muir), Steel resurrects Dragon’s Eye’s celebrated free anniversary compilation series. As it weaves its way through a variety of styles, processes, practices, techniques, and most importantly points of view, Steel illustrates the radical diversity that has become the signature sound of Dragon’s Eye Recordings.

Reviews

Not exactly a year-in-retrospect compilation, but an album to celebrate the twelve years of existence since Yann Novak relaunched his father’s record label Dragon’s Eye Recordings. The ‘steel’ in the title is ‘named after the traditional eleventh anniversary gift (due to miscalculation and a love for the cover art by Jake Muir)”.

A ‘variety of styles, processes, practices, techniques, and most importantly points of view’ is presented in this Name-Your-Price download featuring unreleased tracks by artists that recently released work on the label. Such as: Steve Pacheco, Tobias Hellkvist, Robert Crouch, Yann Novak, Jake Muir, Fabio Perletta, Geneva Skeen, Mark Kate and wndfrm.

78 Minutes of sheer minimalist joy.
