About this release

Issued on vinyl for the first time and pressed on 2 x 140g black vinyl, Juno Reactor’s 2004s album, ‘Labyrinth’, their 6th long player.

Ben Watkins is an essential innovator of modern electronic music and a pioneer of Trance. Over the course of nearly 30 years, Watkins has created a unique driving fusion of electronica, orchestral and global music executed on an epic & symphonic scale. Juno Reactor was formed as an art project in 1990. Ben Watkins wanted to collaborate with other artists, producing exciting projects that were not commercially driven. He wanted to create experimental music and non-musical soundtracks that would work with installations, art pieces, and film projects.

Labyrinth ranges from orchestral, industrial, and techno as well as containing Juno Reactor’s trademark tribal sound (possibly as best featured in Conquistador II). The album also features two songs from Watkins’ collaboration with The Matrix composer Don Davis on the films The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, “Mona Lisa Overdrive” (from Reloaded) and “Navras” (from Revolutions).

As well as releasing a string of influential albums as Juno Reactor, Watkins’ tracks have been placed in numerous high-profile feature films, television programmes and computer games and Ben Watkins composed large sections of the original score for the films The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, as well as composing the entire orchestral score for Japanese anime feature film Brave Story.
