COLL: End Recordings 1995-2002 Label: End Recordings

This is an awesome compilation of selected works from End Recordings. Many of the tracks are house or tech-house, and they span 7 years of music from one of the premier labels in electronic music. The tracks feature artists such as Mr. C (of the Shamen), Layo & Bushwacka, and remixes by Juan Atkins, DJ Sneak Derrick Carter, and more. Be sure to read the commentary of the songs by Mr. C & Layo (of Layo & Bushwacka).
