Progress Productions 100 comp includes so much unreleased music

| | ,

UPDATE

The Progress Productions 100 compilation is out today. You can purchase a physical copy and find it on Spotify.

Of particular note, it features a lovely new song from Unroyal called “The Cruelest Design.” Unroyal is one of the best new artists in synthpop, and their debut album, Mainstream, was number four on my list of the best synthpop albums of 2019.

If you love Swedish synthpop as much as I do, you are no doubt familiar with the outstanding record label Progress Productions. They’ve introduced me to many of my favorite artists, including Kite and Agent Side Grinder.

Progress started in 2004, and this year they’re planning to release their 100th CD, a compilation featuring some of the biggest names in the Swedish synth scene.

Progress 100 consists of 45 tracks of previously unreleased and new material from acts such as Agent Side Grinder, Henric de la Cour, Cryo, Spark!, Code 64, and many more. I am particularly excited about a new song from Unroyal, whose fantastic debut album was not on the Progress roster. It remains to be seen if they’ve joined the label.

The 3-CD comp is out on August 21. There’s no word if this will get a digital release, so I’m planning to order the physical CD just to be safe. You can order Progress 100 here.
