Back To Mine is a compilation series renowned for its diverse collections and credible compilers. Now twenty years since the first Back To Mine release, the series has returned to deliver more 'personal collections for after-hours grooving'. The series has featured everyone from New Order to Royksopp, Fatboy Slim to Tricky, and even Carl Cox and Nightmares on Wax.

The latest to put his stamp on the legendary mix series is GRAMMY® Award-nominated, San Francisco based artist Tycho who will release his Back To Mine compilation on September 30th. It features tracks by some of Tycho's favourite artists as well as two exclusive, unreleased songs, including a Little Dragon remix and new edit of Tycho's 2006 track, "PBS".

For the majority of Back To Mine artists, music was always their first love. For Scott Hansen, however, it was all about graphic design, drawing and photography until a friend at college gave him some damaged audio equipment. "I had just ventured into electronic music via early drum & bass and suddenly my mind started to wonder how music was made and about the whole creative process."

It was this passion for LTJ Bukem and Roni Size that set the stage for the career of the San Francisco-based producer, composer, musician and creative force behind his twice GRAMMY nominated Tycho project. Intertwining carefully crafted visuals with a pulsating combination of ambience, samples, guitars and synthesizers, the Tycho (pronounced Ty-co) story is now six albums old since the arrival of 'Past Is Prologue' in 2006.

"I have been making music for over 25 years, but I feel like I am just beginning" he laughs from his west-coast studio. "For my Back To Mine album I wanted to take things one step further than one of my club or Burning Man sets as I knew this was an opportunity to enter that whole headphone, other worldly, cinematic, soundscape space. I wanted the album to be almost like a dream sequence for the listener."

The Back To Mine promise is to deliver the most tasteful selection of music that creates the ultimate after-hours get-together at your favourite artist's house, right at yours. The series has developed a loyal global fanbase for its on-point choice of artists to step up and present their very own Back To Mine. Imagine being sat round the kitchen table with Norman Cook or Neil Tennant from the Pet Shop boys as they pick their rarities, the b-sides or forgotten gems for your personal entertainment. Welcome to the best house party you have ever been too. Welcome to Back To Mine.
