12" Vinyl

Product Description

On The Corner Records goes beyond being a record label. It is a story of innovative artists from hotbeds of ancient-future music across the globe. This Door To The Cosmos compilation is the label's tenth full release (and an eclectic array of 20 EPs). OtC's rawkus sonic explorations are brought to the fore via 24 tracks making a heady blend of label mainstays and fresh family recruits. The label is an inimitable mixture of Miles Davis's "call it what you want" attitude, the Afro-centric futurism of Sun Ra and the evolving electronic frontier where black music kicks it to the dancefloor. Door To The Cosmos expresses On The Corner's adventure; future sounds referencing the source, be it Detroit, UK bass culture, New Orleans, or the Niger delta. The title riffs off of the otherworldly, Afro futurist jazzer Sun Ra's infamous chant "dare to knock at the door to the cosmos." Sun Ra's sound and narrative bending inspires us to kick at the rules and push at the infinite, the ecstatic and the unknown through music by knock, knock, knocking at the door to the cosmos. The compilation is the first outing for a new raft of artists who are celebrated by the label and welcomed to a creative space brimming with the tales of unsung pioneers of the past and champion sonic explorers of the future. Gatefold sleeves; printed inner sleeves.
