The awesome people over at Toronto based label Badlqqk drops their second “Rookies” compilation and it’s filled to the brink with booming music from fresh and exciting talent from various parts of the globe.
Here’s what Oggie James, blogger & Radio Humber personality had to say about the tracks featured on the compilation.
MAGNVM! – Oh Dear
Imagine Porky Pig taking you on a tour of some ancient ruins, ending with an alien abduction and outer space dance off.
Crowd Control – I House You
Straight from France, this unapologetic old school house track is a rollercoaster you’ll never want to get off.
La Touche Francaise – Do That House
From the dimly lit clubs of Lille, comes La Touche Francaise with a good old groove number. French touch indeed.
Weston & Teston vs. Marco Marz – Booty Bitches
Incomparable measurements emerge from the shadows, stalking its prey while bouncing rhythmically. Rather soothing.
FnKey & A.D.M. – Rad Town
An acid drizzle on a classic sample has this all Italian collab as flavourful as an authentic slice of pizza.
Vryko – They Try
Extremely intimidating, Vryko is not one to be trifled with; those that try suffer the wrath of his booming bass.
Cherriep – Party Starter
Schizophrenic sampling from Toronto’s Cherriep leads this twisted take on house to licentious levels. Frighteningly feverish.
Fibretalk & CVPELLV – Charlie (ft. Will Mills)
When the bottom drops out you’ll find yourself picking up your teeth with a broken arm, wondering what just happened.
Produser – Ritual
Sporting event atmosphere amidst whistles, chanting crowds, explosive engineering and pulsing, fever-pitch intensity.
So Durand – Buttdial
Buttdial sneaks up on you, capturing your consciousness with unparalleled drum design, sublime synths and samples.
