Imagine yourself like back in the days, when tape decks were still bumping. With your headphones on, you’d vibrate with the latest gems your music addict friend would find. That guy would always cop the tunes no one else had, the tunes that wouldn’t be played on the radio. He spent all his time finding the right mix, switching and blending various styles, creating his very own masterpiece, his mixtape.

Of course, those sound investments seem to be very far away now, as a reminisce of those glory days you may still have one or two tapes lying in an old dusty shoe box.

What if you had to back in time? The tape has become a CD, so that you don’t have to go down to your basement and remove the dust from your old boom box. Mixed by Gilb’r, it’s more than a collection album, it’s single work with its very own identity. The release will feature previously vinyl-only Versatile tracks as well as unreleased materials (I:Cube, Future Beat Alliance). Still, for it’s a mixtape blending styles is a must and Gilb’r has also laced a few forgotten gems (Elecktroids, White Noize) and musical UFOs (Michel Houellbecq, Brigitte Fontaine) among other things …

Well, you don’t know what you can expect, but one thing for sure is that it’s gonna be different, personal. That’s a mixtape, the Versatile Mixtape. Sounds like an appealing experience right? Well press Play.
