After almost ten years in the game Will Saul’s Aus Music presents its landmark 100th release – a comprehensive 24 track quadruple vinyl, triple CD and vast digital compilation due for release in July.
Aus 100 will feature new and exclusive tracks from label boss Will Saul as well as Aus regulars Bicep, Midland, Huxley, Deetron, Nick Hoppner, Pearson Sound, Youandewan, Marquis Hawkes, Gerd, Sei A, Bwana, Fold, Shenoda and Appleblim & Komon.
Over the last decade Aus Music has never really had a certain sound, but has always operated on the more underground, bass driven end of the house spectrum. It has worked with big names and has excelled at peak time tracks, but has also helped break upcoming artists from Joy Orbison to Dusky via Midland and George Fitzgerald. As a result, it has become one of the most prominent and on point labels of the day, and is now supported by infrastructure from !K7 such is the volume of its output.
Will Saul: ‘Never in a million years did I feel it would make 100 releases. I still remember the proudest moment was driving to the pressing plant somewhere in Surrey and collecting 1500 vinyl records of our first release. My old VW Polo’s suspension was creaking as I took them to the distributor in Watford.’
‘Aus Music 100’ is out on July 6 through Aus Music.
