The Berlin imprint sources eight tracks of frazzled club movements.

Milo Smee’s Power Vacuum label has announced a third compilation featuring new tracks from Beau Wanzer, Bleaching Agent and Duran Duran Duran.

Vectors 3 also features Chinese artist and RBMA graduate Pan Daijing, a Berlin-based purveyor of noisy techno and scuffed electronics who also makes sound installations. As well ‘Very Uncomfortable, Please’, the compilation includes a remix of her track ‘Druid’ by Smee, aka Bintus.

Tracks by Inca Pax, Dr. Skime and Martyn Hare round out the eight-track compilation, which is due on January 24 in 2×12” and digital formats.

The label has shared a video teaser by The Popular Society featuring tracks by Dr. Skime and Pan Daijing – the first in a series of four, with a new video coming out every second week. Listen below.

Earlier this year the techno imprint dropped a unique collaboration between Bintus and leftfield New York rapper Sensational. Power Vacuum also launched a sublabel, Inversions, focusing on kraut, punk, folk and prog experiments, starting with a compilation featuring Stereolab member Tim Gane’s Cavern of Anti-Matter group.
