Hamburg, Germany's Smallville has good reason to be excited: The beloved imprint, an offshoot of the record store of the same name, is in the midst of marking a full ten years of deep beats, surviving a decade that saw worldwide economic collapse and changes to the music business that made label life harder than ever. Of course, a few good things happened as well—for one, plenty of great house music was released, and a ton of it ended up on the little super-label. With an emphasis on dreamy, low-key, yet spacious four-to-the-floor material—and a roster that includes Move D, Benjamin Brunn, Lawrence, Christopher Rau, Thomas Melchoir and Bruno Pronsato, among many other notables—Smallville's rarely taken a wrong turn over its long lifetime. The label will be releasing an anniversary compilation, 10 Years—Smallville Ways, in September.
