The album's out on 28 October, with tracks from DJ Sneak, Maurizio, Sascha Dive and more

Art Department main man and No 19 boss Jonny White has been chosen as the next selector to compile and mix a Renaissance Mix Collection album.

Announcing the album, Renaissance called White (who has been operating under the Art Department alias single-handed since the departure of Kenny Glasgow last year) "one of the scene's recent innovators" and said his "deep, low slung and spaced-out sound… draws clear stylistic lines back to Renaissance's early 90s chapters."

The Mix Collection: Art Department will be a two-disc affair. CD1 focuses on deep, dubbier, more downtempo sounds from the likes of Maurizio, Steve Bug, Luciano and Deepchord, while CD2 is a little more pumping and floor-focused with tracks from Fresh & Low, DJ Sneak and Sascha Dive, among others.

The Mix Collection: Art Department is out on Renaissance on 28 October.
