Here we are again, celebrating GERGAZ's 6th year with annual compilation from the BEAT GARDEN series. We kept things the way you like them and put together 17-track collection offering an array of efforts from across the beat and bass scene. As usually we have selected tracks we feel deserve your attention, tracks by artists we like, our residents and by those that we have discovered along the way.
Massive thank you to everyone involved, our long time supporters and of course to you, GERGAZ fans!

"The most telling thing about Beat Garden Compilation 4 is that picking a favourite is hard, very hard. Unlike some label compilations, the music is of the highest quality; bass music fans are in for one hell of a treat with this one!"
"Gergaz label has been steadily pushing the boundaries of Slovakia’s electronic music production for years now, and some of their fruits are annually gathered in these lovely Beat Garden compilations. With the fourth edition out on January 25, Gergaz’s enchanting beat garden begins to look like a very well-cultivated Farmville.
Seventeen tracks are planted in this instalment, featuring both local production such as FVLCRVM, Jimmy Pé or Floex, and international import, delivering the ensemble of beautiful leftfield beats and bass, sneaky vocals (Emika‘s sneaky vocals!) and abstract sonic landscapes. XLR8R approved, too. Favourite tracks? Mysteriously contemplative “She’s Gone” by IIIII (how many?) and gentle “Isemifopix” by Floex. Majestic are also “Unsung Heroes” by Slovak beatmaker FVLCRVM.
So if you still haven’t been to Moravský Svätý Ján, do it before tons of UK partygoers head there thinking they’ve just found their next beat paradise."
"Gifted. This simple word sums up the amount of talent, energy of the artists who composed the tracks of this fourth compilation.
This Slovakian label managed to gather excellent artists like Jimmy Pé, FVLCRVM, Floex and many others to give some of the best slo-motion, downtempo, abstract music. If you like sounds accurately worked on, wide ambient atmosphere and uplifting beats this comp as everything present on the label is for you."
"Si algo hemos aprendido abriendo los oídos sin prejuicios es que desde cualquier lugar de esta loca bola azul puede salir un disco o una canción que nos cambie la vida. Eslovaquia no es un país que se prodigue por su protagonismo musical pero allí funciona Gergaz, “una plataforma para jóvenes talentos y un recurso musical para oyentes aventureros”. La cuarta parte de la serie recopilatoria Beat Garden está disponible ya. En ella hay acceso al sonido que desarrollan muchos de sus afiliados o artistas emergentes a los que esta interesante sello les ha echado el ojo. No te lo pierdas."
"Packed with an amazing arsenal of artists, Gergaz yet again delivers a facinating journey of seamless sounds in this 17 track compilation."
