Phase 2 of our Crammed Archives digital reissue series, this time focusing on hidden gems released by the label during the '80s, including lots of colourful, hybrid music: electronic global pop, pre-techno/hip hop infused beats etc. 

This Phase 2 is centered around six short-lived, by now obscure (yet cult-ish) acts who, each for reasons of their own, only ever released one EP (and sometimes no more than a couple of tracks).


The Crammed Archives Series:
As the Crammed Discs label turns 42 this year, we’re using the opportunity of this not-round figure to turn the spotlight on certain folds of our catalogue which have now somewhat receded into the shade. We’ll be rediscovering some electronic music trends we explored during the ’80s and ‘90s by digitally releasing around 250 tracks which only ever came out on vinyl (or on now-deleted CDs). These digital reissues will be rolled out over the next couple of years, in several phases, each consisting of a compilation plus several related EPs:

Phase 1 : Rare SSR Electronica 1988-94 (Crammed Archives 1)        Spring 2022
Phase 2 : Rare Global Pop 1980s  (Crammed Archives 2)             Autumn 2022
Phase 3 : Rare Electronica 1994-01  (Crammed Archives 3)         Spring 2023
 Phase 4 : Rare Electronica B-sides 1988-97  (Crammed Archives 4)        Autumn 2023
