20th Anniversary release April 2021: Elliptical Orbits

Released to mark the twentieth anniversary of the Spirit of Gravity as a promoter of experimental and electronic music in Brighton, Hove and beyond, this collection offers a beguiling cross-section of the interesting stuff we’ve been putting on these past two decades. It includes contributions from current and former members of the Spirit of Gravity Collective and from friends and fellow-travellers, among whom are some of the most outstanding artists who have appeared at Spirit of Gravity events over the last two decades.

The selection represents acts who have appeared throughout the 20 years, and reflects both the high quality and wide variety of music produced during this time. New and old tracks are featured, including a Nick Langley track on which he has been working since 1997, the first Monster Bobby material to be released for more than 5 years, and the first from Same Actor for 3 years. The compilation includes a plethora of exclusive tracks, including unreleased material from Gagarin and Scanner.

The Spirit of Gravity has been hosted by more than ten venues in Brighton and Hove over the last 20 years. We could not, obviously, have done it without them. Remembering this, we are donating all money received from downloads of this compilation will be donated to the CrowdFunder for our venue for the last two years, the Rossi Bar.

Featuring more than 30 tracks and over 3½ hours of music, it offers a varied and fascinating journey through the last twenty years of experimentation on this part of England’s southern edge, so please dig deep and give generously.
