luv271 All Clear

All Clear

Clear was a short lived UK label specializing in future electro and jazzish IDM that just about blew my mind in 1995. harboring early works from luminaries such as Global Communications, μ-Ziq, Autechre, Matthew Herbert, Acen, Kirk Degiorgio, Morgan Geist, etc. made Clear a mecca for fans of electronic music. here is a 20th anniversary mix to pay homage to one of my favorite labels. long live Clear.
