áVarious Artists : MV X áMonochrome Visionsá2004-2014
( 3xCD by Monochrome Vision Russia 2014)
In 2014, Monochrome Vision label turns 10 years old, for this event we conceived the special project, which is this compilation with contributions of all artists ever produced. This triple CD set contains 48 exclusive tracks, total duration is almost four hours of music.
Release date is 28th July 2014. Limited edition of 500 copies in eight panel digifile.

The label concept came quickly - strict and old fashioned b/w artwork and the intention to find and release music from 80s underground or some new music that followed the traditions or rooted in aesthetics of that time. The next release was Bezdna by Cisfinitum, the most commercially successful one, being sold out in a year (the Pernice album as well, but the half of edition was just spent for the promotion purpose, I sent out two hundreds copies for free anywhere I can). My aim is to do 500 copies editions, even now, in times when labels tend to have 150 copies and sell it quickly, what makes some people not happy at all. The third release was by Miguel Ruiz, who shortly after was invited to play in Russia amongst other spanish artists - he was chosen because his music was released here! Those tiny surprises made me feel really entusiastic of what I was doing. Unearthing the old music of Rafael Flores and Frank Rothkamm, contacting such underground legends as Maurizio Bianchi, Asmus Tietchens and If, Bwana, collecting the tracks of my favorite russian artists for the compilation being produced in France, and especially meeting artists like Philippe Blanchard (Lieutenant Caramel), Jean-Marie Onni (Le Syndicat) and Guido Huebner (Das Synthetische Mischgewebe) in person, my involvement in label activity became lifestyle. I would like to thank all the people around the globe who supported me throughout the years, all adventurous listeners who devoted their lifetime to my releases, and of course to respected artists for their confidence and inspirational music that keep all of us alive.
