From the liner notes:
"The discourse developed around Jacques Derrida's concept of 'Hauntology' and its application to music in the minds of writers like Simon Reynolds, K-Punk and David Toop is one of the most discussed philosophical and aesthetic musical ideas of recent years. Derrida's original use of the phrase can be linked to a sense of 'threading the present through the past', or a ghostly re-imagining of the past defining our existence.

But in its musical sense, Hauntology has been used to describe a gathering of disparate artists dealing in "haunted" sonics; music resonating with the emotions and feelings of past analog, and digital ghosts. While there are many interpretations of the concept, we've taken it to cover artists who have tried to to re-engage with intangible musical feelings and experiences that have affected their formative years or that have become forever ingrained on their sonic psyche, without merely rehashing them as pastiche.

Looking specifically at the British musical landscape of the early 21st century, it's been said that after the 'death of rave' we're experiencing a sort of creative comedown, where the dubbed ectoplasmic traces of the musical past are caught in an ever-decreasing feedback loop of nostalgia seeping through music and other artistic forms, resonating echoes of intangible elements from days gone by.

Our selection veers from The Caretaker's apparitional sample morphology, through Ariel Pink's exquisite MOR narco-pop, the Ghost Box label's miniaturised vision of middle England, onto Burial's mournful rave dreams, all leaving an abstract yet indelible mark on this very particular musical landscape we find ourselves in today."
