Track listing Edit
‡ Genre is subjective. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Extended Plays Edit
- "Go Berzerk" is featured on Pegboard Nerds's Nerds By Nature EP.
- "Just You" is featured on Puppet's Fear Is Fleeting EP.
- "Pilvorm" is featured on Hush's Ruimtevaart EP.
- "Shadowtask" is featured on PYLOT's Shadowtask EP
- Nanobii returned to Monstercat with "Chipland" nearly three years after "Rainbow Road," teasing the song on the final podcast of 2016 (Ep. 134). "Chipland" was Monstercat's first song in 2017, the third first song of the year in a row to be a Hard Dance song (the first two had both been by Stonebank.)
- The album went into a 2 week hiatus from December 19 to December 30, 2016, due to the release of the Best Of 2016 mix and Final Best of Genre mixes.
- The "Saving Light" music video is a collaboration with Ditch the Label, a non-profit charity organization that works to stop bullying among children and teens.
- The music video for Grant's "Constellations" is a collaboration with BC Children's Hospital, a medical center that treats children from infancy to age 16.
- This is the second album on which Stephen Walking has not released a single, the first being 019 - Endeavour. He has released at least once on every other album.
- "Melodymania" & "Time To Say Goodbye (ARUNA vs Rameses B Remix)" were originally in the album's lineup. "Melodymania" was swapped for Puppet's "Just You".
- Despite "Speed of Light" from Nerds By Nature EP by Pegboard Nerds being used in 030's trailer, the song does not appear in the album.
- The name "Finale" caused significant confusion among many, thinking that it was the last album of Monstercat or that the label was ending. However, there are no signs of Monstercat stopping compilation albums anytime soon. This was proved in the 030 edition of the Monstercat Podcast.
- Upon the announcement of Monstercat's next compilation, Uncaged Volume 1, it was revealed that Monstercat had ended their numbered compilation albums with 030.
