Once again Berlin's renowned Club Transmediale festival presents its official audio compilation in association with De:Bug magazine and zero". Released today, the compilation not only features 15 tracks by some of the festival's finest artists, it is also available in its entirety as a free download to the first 2.000 zero" users.
Club Transmediale will take place between February 1-6 this year and will once again highlight the latest in contemporary club music, avant-garde electronica, media art and theory across its one week day and night program at diverse locations across Berlin.
The huge line-up of this year's CTM edition, themed #LIVE!?, will feature London's Ikonika, spearheading an entire Hyperdub showcase at Berghain, a Perlon label-night with Bruno Pronsato and Sammy D performing as Half Hawaii, neo-classic posterboys Hauschka and Erik K Skodvin (a.k.a. Svarte Greiner) investigating 'contemporary chamber music performance practice' with exclusive concerts at .HBC, while electronica goodness will be delivered by The Field and Gold Panda at Maria Club - also the venue for post-dubstep explorations with 2010's hotshots Raime and Hype Williams.

One of CTM's central projects this year is the immersive CineChamber installation at HAU 2, which will be the location of audio-visual concerts by Monolake and Raster-Noton supergroup Signal. Those more inclined to upfront partying shouldn't miss CTM's final weekend at Berghain/Panoramabar with Berlin bass stars Modeselektor and Siriusmo, Dutch house master Mark Du Mosch and many more.
The works of all the artists mentioned can be sampled on the festival's official audio compilation, including many tracks, so head over to our CTM.11 page to download the compilation for free. Downloads are limited to 2.000 copies, so be quick!
Of course you shouldn't miss the festival itself at all cost, so we hope to see you in Berlin - the zero" DJ team will host CTM's Selectors Choice night on Friday, February 4, at Kreuzberg's Monarch club. So why not come by and join us for a drink and a chat!
