This second chapter, also compiled by MattB, presents 10 of the most interesting producers in the electronic scene today. MattB once again decided not to follow an easy trend, instead opting to deliver a diverse yet incredibly cohesive showcase of what is the state of electronic music in 2008.

This sequel begins with emerging London-based producer Rico Casazza, well known in the minimal techno scene. He starts off the compilation with a dark and deep track, full of bright, stone melodies mixed with lazy ambiences and industrial noises. German producer Vakuum Sounds follows that up with the minimal, dubby, hypnotic track Khaskhas-Schlafmohn. LA producer Nalepa is next with his patented brand of ambient glitch dub. For the few who still don't know NSE (Original Dub Soundsystem since 1996), here is a perfect example of what to expect from his typical productions: a fusion of Jamaican-style engineering with futuristic, psychoactive dubstep elements. RND (aka RaNDom) reworked one of their new album tracks and turned it into a glitch-dub anthem. Jambassa continues the journey, exploring some serious Digital Dub. He's followed by Disrupt, pioneer of Digital Laptop Reggae (DLR) from the seminal label Jahatari. Vibesquad's track is next, a soulful bass wobbler with some wicked melodies, dirty and beautiful as life itself. French producer Melodium successfully combines elements of pop electronica and folk songs into his own unique blend of folktronica. The compilation closes with Greek Opium by Papa Legba (aka Pete Pan, Celestial Dragon's other label dj), a track loaded with aural soundscapes supercharged by psy noises and distant melodies.
