The world was a slightly different place in 2006, the last time Tirk put out a label comp (TIRK01). Obama had just become a Senator; merchant bankers still had their snouts in their each others' troughs, not the taxpayers pockets, Deamau5 didn't exist, three times as many record shops did. Minimal still sounded vaguely edgy and interesting, disco was the preserve of thirty year old men with beards, Annie Mac was about to discover Dubstep...

Now we're got Radio One jocks devoting half there shows to Aeroplane mixes, and "edits" in danger of becoming a genre itself, and just as record sales head ever closer to what must finally be the bottom of the sales curve, the spirit of disco finally rises again. Yep, there's going to be no white horses or hanging out with Truman Capote this time round, it's all about being slightly too old and not caring in Dalston basements for us, being fabulous in ill advised cardigans from Primark. And the music... there's always the music.

Whether it's Terje chopping up Chaz Jankel into piano scream up heaven, or new Russian lads Acos Coolkas creating ice cool electronic house, Prins Thomas adding Scando swing to Sorcerer's West Coast lounge tackle, Richard Sen going disco-psyche on Brad Vachal, Kelpe taking Architeq's glistening glitchtonica for a warm and fuzzy slo mo bath, Hercules getting tracky on another Chas J track, or Forty Thieves adding West Coast bump to Morten Sorensens timeless "Start Something"... we've again been lucky to work with some of the worlds better artists over the last couple of years, and couldn't be more happy to round em' up and show them off as a 2 x cd set on Tirk 02, before striding off into what promises to be an , um, "challenging" 2009.
