Mood series #20 is a cause for celebration!
20 releases! That is no small achievement!
Greyscale wishes to thank it's loyal listeners with a special treat from their founder. grad_u went deep into the archive and has collected 12 unreleased before tracks ranging from 2006 to 2016. This goes back to the time of his very first releases up through to the beginnings of the Mood Series! In those 10 years there is a lot of various sides to the grad_u sound that this highlight's. From powerful bangers like 'Helix' and 'Nuclear Reactor' to dancefloor gems such as 'Biomechanics' and 'DX'. Then there are sure fire winners for the tech fans with 'Vacuum Chamber' and 'Machine'. grad_u hasn't forgot those that love it extra deep with 'Taip Laukiu' and 'Bounce 06'. There is also a few special checkpoints along the way in this release that will help you bookmark all these great tracks. Half way through, check out the grainy outerspace static in 'Sputnik' and to complete the release, the powerful and immense beatless monster that is 'Thamu'.
Greyscale wishes to thank all its amazing producers that have made this label what it is so far. Thank you! And we certainly wouldn't be here if it wasn't for our fantastic techno community and listeners. Thank you!!!

Reduct was my introduction to Arjen's amazing catalog, and it still stands up solidly today as some of the best techno I've heard in the last decade. Having this in lossless quality, remastered by the man himself, is an exceptional prize. Tom Rimshot
