Maison Fauna Field Guide I
As Maison Fauna's introductory release, Field Guide I is both a cross-genre synthesis and a statement of who we are. As a label, we always put music first; whether it be house, techno, or UK garage, you can expect the most refined selections from artists all over the world. The compilation, like the name suggests, guides you through the versatility innate to our artists and their work. This makes listening to the anthology akin to embarking on a sonic journey; listeners are transported to a world where the creativity of our artists is the only guide. We managed to pack the double LP with 19 tracks featuring 22 artists, including Blursome, (whose releases on Scuba's Hotflush Records have been compared to Burial), and Daniels Jack, (with releases on Nervous Records and Desert Hearts; his track here is more akin to Blawan). As lovers of all forms of underground electronic music, this journey begins in a dark, ambient space. It then traverses several different variants of minimal, deep, and electro house, prior to concluding with both sample-heavy and melodic techno.
