What began in the mid-'90s, initiated by the event-organizer duo Sperling & Mauss in Jena as an event series by the name of "Freude am Tanzen" has long been the best-known platform for electronic music on the Saale River. In the meantime there have been over 60 releases, a subsidiary label (Musik Krause), and an in-house booking agency. With 16 years in, the still-young enterprise Freude am Tanzen is on the way from adolescence to adulthood. Yet in spite of tightly organized structures, fortunately boredom has not set in, and this is proven with the jubilee compilation Freude am Tanzen SIX10 Compilation. "It would be too easy to take the best tracks from 16 years of Freude am Tanzen and pack them into a sampler," FAT-head Thomas Sperling explains as the reasoning being SIX10 being no "best-of" but rather chock-full with new tracks. This compilation is a toast to 16 years of Freude am Tanzen and there are many new tracks from almost every artist from the label's history until now, spanning the stylistic spectrum from here to there.
