For Budino’s instalment, she selects 12 tracks spanning from proto-house and tribal ambience to industrial EBM, balearic, and “glacial tones”.

It features music from artists including DJ Blasy, Scott Edward, Clock DVA, Peter Seiler, Fidelfatti, Scott Edward, and Budino herself.

Marking the series’ fourth instalment, it follows Shanti Celeste’s edition in 2020.
