SERAYR01: Satellite Era presents "Year One: Revisited" - a compilation celebrating our first year as a label, featuring handpicked artists that we invited to remix our discography. This is the first edition of what will be an annual, charity-based release series in our catalog selection.
In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, 100% of the proceeds made from this project will be donated to NoStigmas, a Chicago-based nonprofit organization specializing in mental health inclusivity & accessibility.

We welcome Montreal-based producer brtrnd on remix duties for gonima's "Luminescence," released earlier this year on Distant Arrays Volume 03 (SERA008). Keeping all the ethereal emotions that the song provides in tact, he turns it into a garage-influenced, club-ready track that feels both authentic & accessible.
It felt right to invite Istanbul-based Granul to remix his friend & fellow countryman Fosil. The two Turkish artists have been leading the way in their underground scene & are beginning to make bigger waves in the global music sphere. He takes "Retiform," released on Distant Arrays Volume 01 (SERA005) last December, & turns it into a mind-numbing track with dancing breakbeats & a powerful bassline.
With unreleased tracks teased in our label showcase mix earlier this year, Terminal 11 makes his Satellite Era debut with a remix of "2346" from Test Bench's Butterfly EP (SERA002). With a musical career spanning over 20 years that helped pioneer the early U.S. breakcore movement, the Phoenix artist takes a different approach in this rework - he creates a thumping techno track that progresses deeper into haunting, modular sounds.
We end this EP with a very special remix from algorithmic producer Kindohm - he digests Tsone's Airmass EP (SERA004) in its entirety & turns it into an uneasy collage full of twists & turns. Remains of all six original tracks can be deciphered in this unique take on one of our most beloved releases from 2020.
We are immensely grateful for the support that we have received over the past year. We hope to continue shining light to societal issues first & foremost, all while providing meaningful art for those struggling around the world.
