Infinite Machine celebrates 10 years with the release of its self-titled compilation on December 3, with preview track ‘Benfika – Reflejo’ premiering on AQNB today. The record reflects on the label’s hardcore DIY ethos that has characterized its involvement in club music this past decade, featuring tracks from Xiao Quan, Galtier, Daniel Ruane, and previous collaborators.
Benfika’s ‘Reflejo’ strikes a foreboding and futuristic scene for the compilation, its post-club percussion rocking the 100bpm beat. The track’s melodies evoke an eerie atmosphere apart from the high-intensity dance of Infinite Machine’s earlier catalog, marking the label’s transition to conceptual projects on hyper-cultures and off-planet worlds. Nonetheless, a tinge of nostalgia forges connections between the past and future outlooks.**
