VEHLINGGO PRESENTS: 5 YEARS features new or previously unreleased music from a group of artists who over the past five years have helped make Vehlinggo what it is today. The album is a celebration of this landmark anniversary, but it's also an opportunity for listeners to have a bunch of great new music from artists they admire all in one place.
The artists come from a variety of genres, such as synth-pop, Italo Disco, synthwave, nu-disco, French disco, and film and TV scores (real or imagined). Some are part of storied recording families that have heavily influenced the landscape, such as Italians Do It Better, the Valerie Collective, and the Rosso Corsa Collective, and others are regulars on extraordinary labels like MONDO/Death Waltz, Burning Witches, and One Way Static. Others might not be tied to a specific label, but they're building movements that are reverberating across the spectrum. And some are even returning with new projects or collaborations after helping lay the groundwork decades ago.
However you frame it, the cadre of souls who've contributed to this project are earnest, kind, and talented, and their music promises a beautiful and engaging experience.
The album is structured like a soundtrack to an imaginary film, so any given song's placement on the track list corresponds to its role in the narrative of the unrealized film. Keep that in mind as you dive in deep.
Thank you for reading Vehlinggo's interviews and reviews, listening to the podcasts and mixes, and wearing the logo tees in highly photogenic circumstances. Your support is so profoundly meaningful!
Enjoy the album!
