It’s a well-worn tune for this summer; the Coronavirus pandemic has meant that many festivals have had to cancel their events.
Gottwood 2020 was due to take place on June 11th - 15th. Instead, the organisers have decided to revive their Gottwax imprint to release a 30-track compilation ‘Nottwax — A Gottwood Compilation’, featuring tracks from DJs associated with the festival over the years as well as some of its newer recruits.
‘Nottwax’ will be released on July 20. It will be the first in a regular release schedule of EPs intended to highlight some of the artists that Gottwood organisers care about.

‘Nottwax’ features tracks from the likes of Margaret Dygas, Roman Flügel, DJ Tennis in collaboration with Joseph Ashworth, Ruf Dug, and Voigtmann and John Dimas as VOIGT.MAS.
As a whole, the compilation is eclectic and ranges from dark electro to disco back to Balearic and everything in between, simulating the live experience of the festival itself.
Through the label’s Bandcamp, they’re also giving away a free Jonny Rock edit to coincide with the release.
