More about Tycho’s Back To Mine compilation:
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 Jungle, Carl Cox, and Nightmares on Wax.
Tycho’s compilation 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”.
“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.”
This preview distinguishes the enthralling compilation due to drop. Immerse yourselves into the snippets and prepare for this dazzling collection.

“Since the earliest days of Tycho, online communities have played an integral role in the project. From the origins of ISO50 blog which served to introduce Tycho to a wider audience, to Web2 social media platforms and most recently the Tycho Friendship Server on Discord, I’ve always seen these spaces as an opportunity to connect with fans. Web3 technology now presents us with a chance to connect on an even deeper level and I am excited to announce The Tycho Open Source Community, a place for us to experience and build together,” says Scott Hansen who is Tycho.

Those that pre-order in the Open Source Community will be sent a free commemorative digital collectable of the vinyl on release date. Community members will be able to listen to the two unreleased tracks before they are available to the public.
Other benefits within the Tycho Open Source Community include: The Open Source DIY merch activation where members are invited to remix Tycho’s art for a chance for their design to be featured on digital collectibles and a merch item; Previews of unreleased live concert footage; All community members receive 15% on all Tycho merchandise; And digital vinyl listening events where members can hear unreleased tracks and mint for free a collectable of them in rarefied colorways.
