Year of the Ox
If “The Year of the Rat” compilation last year demonstrated what the label was about, our latest compilation in the lunar calendar series “The Year of the Ox” might give you the hint that we aren’t backing down. We have curated a 12 track serve from some of our fave artists both local and global.
We are excited to have onboard Austrian OGs, ROYGREEN & PROTONE, who take a detour from their jazzier side into no-nonsense halftime and LAKEWAY, whilst still fresh off the Med School boat, delivers a marvellous dark liquid club banger.
We also have Asian-based artists representing in full force. Beijing’s rising big cheese RADIAX, Unchained’s roller studmuffin KRAY, Japan’s long-fringed wonderkid FETUS and Sino-Italian trio outfit FRACTALE – all brimming with burly bass weight.
Unchained Recordings Dutch royalty SUBP YAO offers up yet another ‘make shit bang’ curveball and Russia’s CHAMPION SOUND shows how to recycle classic breakbeat for modern-day warehouse stomping.
Stateside, Unchained crew member and skinny git, AIRSTRIKE makes his debut by embracing Unchained’s mutant bass ethos and disguises it in dirty, smelly, “roller” clothing with his tune Lion Up.
Canadians GROVES and OAKK are back with two totally wrong face-tic wonky wobblers and we also welcome fresh outfit 3VS’s (Akuratyde, Tellus and Monika) who have thoroughly owned this gorgeous, atmospheric yet menacing, sunrise belter.
We are incredibly proud of all our artists for their work on this release and we sincerely hope you grab a listen to all the tunes inside.
