This is a selection from the recent releases from Electronc Musik. It does contain a new (March 2011) exclusive track from Noise Research. It's a radical reworking of the track '4th from the Left' which has now become 'Third from the Left'. The music was chosen by selecting the thrid track from each respective release, hence all can be classed as 'track 3'. The sampler is a great example of the wonderful roster of artists on this label. My thanks to all of them All the tracks come from free...

Janx: The Gathering is a three-piece improvisation group created in Wirral, UK in 2007.

The group was formed by members of the The Jinx Outpost commune, a collective of musicians and DJs running techno and drum & bass events. They initially rehearsed in a decommisioned Cobra Mk III spacecraft, which was a large influence...
