Ai is that rare sort of electronic label: by defying or simply ignoring musical genres, it has become the arbiter of a certain sound. This sampler, gathered from Ai’s catalogue circa ’00-’05, provides examples of exactly why the imprint has garnered such critical acclaim-its music runs the gamut from deep, epic techno to warped breakbeat, electro, experimental noise, and ambient pop. Every track is a standout, so there‘s no point in singling one or two out-suffice it to say that fans of good, solid electronic music, whether it be on the dancefloor or at home, will find plenty to like, indeed love, in this fine compilation.
