The first compilation on the Lowriders Recordings label is coming and I don’t want to be the one sticking feathers up my colleagues arses but what a fine compilation it is! Featuring a lot of up-and-coming artists such as FilosofischeStilte (only 18 years old, representing the 8bit sound of The Hague), Crewdson from London, Deadstokdonut (another young talent from the 070-area) but also some more renowned artists like for example HALP has certainly turned out to be, Taprikk Sweezee, known for his soulful vocals, AK Kids and the ever-ruling Montgomery Clunk. This record has not become a quick selection of unused songs but rather a very strong overview of what this label is capable of. From scary horror-sound infested witch-house to carefully arranged soundlayer madness, from westcoast 8bit to Berlin soul, even some post-fidget glitch-house if I’m correct in spotting a new genre, it is all here. Order while hot!
Artists you’ll find on this compiler are: Wokr (USA), Xavier McDaniel (USA), FilosofischeStilte (Netherlands), Taprikk Sweezee (Germany), Deadstokdonut (Netherlands), Halp (Netherlands), Not Fear (Sweden), Crewdson (UK), Dagger DX (Netherlands), Slamagotchi (Australia), Montgomery Clunk (Romania), Strand (Spain), AK Kids (Scotland), P-Fang (USA) , DZA (Russia) vs Montgomery Clunk (Romania).
Fulgeance: I like most of the tracks, but my love stay with Dagger DX “Number One Suspect”, fuckin correct groove; & WokR “Pure Sex”, sensitive mood. Congrats!
DEV79: glimm is a dope track…its got a nice vibe and movement. will def play this!
KaptinisDead (Chrome Kids): Beatitude album is sick fellas! Definitely be giving some of these a spin.
Robot Koch: feeling the Taprikk Sweezee tune, gotta listen more, but good stuff there on first listen
Sonic Router: this is amazing!
Cardopusher: this compilation definitely made my weekend!!! on repeat since i downloaded it! the Deadstokdonut “Television Spleen” is huge!!! also feeling a lot the Not Fear vs Wuzz “Innerspender”. everytime i listen to it i have a new favourite from it lol!
Monolithium Will defo be rinsing Monty’s “Felix” – shit is HYPE!
Mötem: I am very impressed with the differentness of this, in a time when so many artists are kind of going more “normal” i find these beats truly weird and it pleases me to hear that you guys are still into putting out the odd shit. One incredibly hot slow bubbly tune is Television Spleen by Deadstokdonut….the following tune The Gluediators by DZA vs Montgomery Clunk, definitely a big fan of that shine, an almost rustie type shine….that halp track, daymmmnnn, and The other Montgomery Clunk tune HOLY FUCK, that is some serious killah… NO ONE IS DOCUMENTING THIS CHIT. this is a specific thing that needs to be documented…..
I really am feeling the diversity you put into this comp…..
