Ghostly International has spent its first decade in constant motion, building a catalog of category-defying music that pushes forever forward, forging new stylistic connections and breaking new artistic ground at every juncture. The Horizon Line / Ghostly By Night double-disc compilation is a state-of-the-label address featuring ten remixes and reinterpretations of Ghostly classics and ten new, forthcoming, and unreleased songs.
Disc one, Horizon Line, shines a spotlight on the greater Ghostly family with remixes and covers of ten Ghostly classics. Lusine's rerub of School of Seven Bells' "Half Asleep" starts things off with a bang, stripping the dense original down to its vocals and drum machine, but keeping the dreamy momentum. From there, Horizon Line takes off, flying from Solvent's analog-tinged remix of Deastro's "Kurgan Wave Number One" to Madlib's grainy take on Dabrye's "Air (feat. Doom)". The compilation closes, fittingly, with an oldie but goodie: Dykehouse's feedback-laced creeper "When You Come", turned into a boppy electro-pop number by the reclusive Russian Futurists.
Disc two, evocatively titled Ghostly By Night, takes a peek at the label's future with ten tracks of new and unreleased material: Matthew Dear previews his new direction on the oil-slick dada funk of "Rally Rasser Good" and Deastro does the same on the chanting, echo-drenched "Mowgli the Lynx"; Shigeto's "Sky of the Revolution" comes off like the cooing child of Aphex Twin's "Windowlicker"; and Justin K. Broadrick (aka Jesu) debuts his Pale Sketcher alias, offering the lumbering ambient crunch of "Plans That Fade (Faded Dub)".
Ghostly International continues to evolve and expand. Horizon Line / Ghostly By Night encapsulates the Ghostly universe—from its consistently quality music to its dashing Michael Cina-designed cover art—while providing a gripping front-to-back listen in the process. Horizon Line / Ghostly By Night is dedicated to two of Ghostly's lost friends.
Horizon Line / Ghostly By Night is available in three different formats: digital only, as a deluxe 2xCD set, and as a set of limited prints + download. The special print edition of Horizon Line / Ghostly By Night, limited to 50 copies, consists of two 8 1/2″ × 11″ (3/4" border) unframed prints of Michael Cina's artwork for the compilation, printed using archival giclee inkjet on Hahnemühle Photo Rag Ultra Smooth paper. Each print is signed by Michael Cina, and includes a download link for Horizon Line / Ghostly By Night upon checkout.
