Cassette label Opal Tapes have had a robust first year of operations, turning out a succession of frazzled house releases and characterful electronic experiments.

That list includes the debut release from bucolic producer 1991 (who also dropped a fine collection of beserker techno as MCMXCI), a knockabout tape from Dro Carey under his Tuff Sherm alias, and under-the-radar curiosities from Huerco S and Best Available Technology. As Juno Plus report, the label will toast their successes with a new pay-what-you-like compilation, featuring a host of Opal Tapes frontrunners and associates.

Anthony Naples, who caused a stir with his fine ‘Mad Disrespect’ single for the fledgling Mister Saturday Night label, contributes a scrambled techno pounder, and Vlek alumni WANDA GROUP offer up some typically convoluted glitch. Tuff Sherm teams up with PMM, and label boss Basic House contributes a sluggish house cut in the Luxury Problems mould. Portugeuse producer IVVVO, Lumigraph and Boya are among the featured artists.

Head to the Opal Tapes Bandcamp to grab the collection.
