Frustrated with the low quality of most techno compilations, Tim Millington founded the New Electronica label with the intention of showcasing groundbreaking artists, not one-hit wonders. With help from record-store wizards Dave Cawley (Fat Cat) and Simon Clarke (Trax), Millington compiled American and European Technological Innovations in 1993. Featuring techno-trance from CJ Bolland and Maurizio, among others, the album and its now-distinctive sleeve design had few predecessors in the field. Millington has released about three albums per year since, including label compilations for ART Records (Objets D'Art), 100% Pure (The Lowlands) and Eevo Lute (Agenda 22), and a two-volume trip-hop compilation called 110 Below. New Electronica also serves as a home for artists such as Scanner (Spore), As One (Reflections and Reflections on Reflections), Neuropolitique (Are You Now or Have You Ever Been?) and Morph (Stormwatch).
