U.S. Route 101 is an important highway running through California and Mexico. It is sometimes called El Camino Real (The Royal Road) as it's route closely follows the old route used by the Spanish missions. In some parts of California, it's known as the Pacific Highway or the 101. Over the years, pieces of this road have been renamed and restructured, and partially replaced by the more recent Interstate 5. Like U.S. Route 101, electro is a music genre that connects different countries and different people. It has also been truncated, changed by technology, and often renamed. Nevertheless, this royal road that has been influencing the world of electronic music for more than 30 years persists on it's path in the margins of a crowded and commercial junction. This is what Jeremy Cottereau, aka Djedjotronic, wanted to illustrate in this compilation. Most of the tracks have been composed exclusively for the album, by some of the most renowned names of the genre: The Hacker, Maelstrom, Glass Figure, Jensen Interceptor, Mikron, Defekt, SCNTST, Hoshina Anniversary, CWS, Noob, Voiron, Miss Kitten, Pip Williams, Atom TM, Automat, Tessla286, Commuter, Nehuen, and Djedjotronic himself. All the artists featured have come across his path at some point. They form, as he likes to say, his musical extended family.
