In the spring of 2007, musician and producer Paul °∆Mudd°« Murphy decided to launch his own label. Named after the house he grew up in, Claremont 56 would release beautiful music by friends, associates, collaborators and like-minded musicians. In the 10 years that have passed since, Claremont 56 has more than surpassed Murphy°«s modest expectations. It has built up a cult following around the world, with listeners responding positively to the label°«s combination of magical music, beautiful artwork, and impeccable packaging. To mark the label°«s first decade, Murphy has put together a sumptuous vinyl box set of previously unheard material, produced and presented with the same attention to detail that listeners have come to expect. Each copy of Claremont 56: 10 Years contains five weighty slabs of wax and a bespoke info sheet, housed in a specially designed, hand-numbered box with debossed logos on the front and rear. There is also a limited-edition run of 200 copies which come with an additional 12°… containing exclusive remixes and a brand new Paqua track, °∆Dalas°«.However impressive the packaging, it°«s the music that makes Claremont 56: 10 Years stand out. Featuring a mixture of unreleased tracks and brand new remixes of vintage label releases, the highlights come thick and fast. As you°«d expect, some of the most impressive contributions come from those artists you could describe as °»legendary°…, including Chicago deep house originators Larry Heard and Ron Trent. Can legend Holger Czukay kindly contributes one of the standout moments, the eccentric °∆Music To Be Murdered By°«, from his own unreleased catalogue, while Afro-cosmic pioneer Daniele Baldelli joins forces with Marco Dionigi to deliver a typically spacey remix of Bison°«s °∆Familiar Stranger°«. There°«s also an epic, Afro-tinged dub disco remix of Smith & Mudd°«s °∆Nether°« by Norwegian scene founder Bjorn Torske. Elsewhere, Good Timin°« man Jex Opolis turns an overlooked track by Paraiso into a samba-boogie killer, Sean P dubs out Zee Erf°«s beautiful cover of °∆Southern Freeez°«, and Phil Mison turns FreshRo°«s laidback electrofunk cut °∆Pacific State°« into a breezy, Balearic gem. Look out too, for the emotion-rich beauty of Statues°« °∆River Darkness°« – a track arguably worth the cost of the box set on its own – and the deep space explorations of Almunia°«s Leo Ceccanti. We could go on, but we°«re running out of space. Suffice to say, Claremont 56: 10 Years is a lovingly compiled, curated and presented celebration of the label°«s first decade.
