Curated by UK artist Manni Dee, the forthcomingLife Between Screens compilation aims to “encourage listeners to engage with music on a visceral level, liberating sound from its potentially functional shackles.” To do so, the collection has gathered compositions from WANDA GROUP, Deft, Lotide, BNJMN, Shelley Parker, and others for its 11-track offering, which will be accompanied by a six-track cassette full of bonus efforts. One such production is “A Nod Was the First Step,” which sees the comp’s curator himself operating under his Nuances alias as he takes listeners on an elongated journey through crunchy ambience and gloomy, distant sonics. Both the Life Between Screens compilation and its accompanying cassette release will drop on September 22 via the WotNot label.
