A sign hung across the door, its thick black lettering read 'CLOSED'. For months and months, spaces in towns and cities had become empty and disused. Abandoned but not through choice, only through necessity. Survival is paramount before these spaces fall between the cracks or are lost amongst the noise. Take some time to listen, take a moment to act.
The idea to anchor the history of Marseille's Metaphore Collectif had been in the team's mind for some time, but when the pandemic hit and forced the collective's club and studio META to close, in an effort to save this space they've enlisted the help of artists close to META to contribute to a compilation. Almost everyone they contacted got involved, resulting in a mammoth compilation of 64 tracks from artists like OKO DJ, Nick Klein, Simo Cell and Jacques Satre, celebrating the genres and sounds that META have consistently pushed at their free parties.
All of these tracks come together, until they combine an album as experimental as it is intense and addictive, which takes possession of oneself as a sweet poison, while it transports us progressively and boisterously, as few producers with determined fluency they are ready to do, condensing two ideas that it seemed that we were no longer going to recover: future and permanence.
