Dutch producers Steffi and Martyn have enlisted Actress, DJ Stingray and lots more to provide new tracks for an upcoming compilation

Sometime collaborators and Ostgut Ton affiliates Steffi and Martyn have teamed up to curate a new compilation featuring new and unreleased tracks from the likes of themselves, Actress, DJ Stingray and Shed, amongst many more.

Above, from the compilation, you can check the halftime sounds of 'Pasiris', a new track from fellow Ostgut Ton-associated producer Answer Code Request, which features on the compilation and is the first track to be unveiled from the record.

In all, Air Texture VI encompasses 26 tracks, with the likes of FaltyDL, Mosca, dBridge, Appleblim, Barker, Total Science and many more also contributing tracks to the release.

The Air Texture series invites two producers or DJs to pull together a double-CD of unreleased music. The only rule placed on them is that the music featured should stray from peak-time dancefloor bangers. However, they have entire autonomy over their picks otherwise.

"A common thread in our friendship and collaborations is that we've always been enthusiastic about discovering new and old music and sharing our findings with each other," Steffi and Martyn say. "In our approach for Air Texture the aim was to reflect that joy, and compile a set of tracks by both established producers and new talent, each with their own unique interpretations of a leftfield, non-linear aesthetic.

Air Texture will release Air Texture VI on October 5 on CD and digitally.
