I love the Fall. I love the smells, the colors and that need to try and capture every bit of warmth and sunlight before the winter sets in. To celebrate this lovely time of year, we have released an Autumn Sampler every year since we started the label. Our next one comes out Monday, November 25th and on this lush Fall moods compilation is slew of new artists to the label, including Adjust. He is better known for his work as half of Zweistein and the label he runs out of The Netherlands, Cosmic Disco Records.
