Forthcoming Proximity One: Narrative Remixes from LA's Proximal Records

Caution: beats in proximity.

New heat from Proximal.

The USA west coast instrumental hip hop renaissance has been in effect for a couple of years, and there are finally enough studios taking rogue beatmakers off the LA streets and giving them a home. Proximal Records is one such place, and they gave the world a taste of what was to come with 2010’s Proximity One: Narrative of a City. That compilation — which featured up-and-comers like Sahy Uhns, Dam Funk, and TOKiMONSTA — is getting a revisit through Proximity One: Narrative Remixes, a short remix comp due out next month.

Like the original compilation, this short run remix release brings together scene standbys like Daedelus and newbies like BearClaw. You can tell by the tracklist:

TOKiMONSTA – Cigarette Lust (90% Wake Mix)
Teebs – Wind Loop (BearClaw’s Cicada Remix)
Dam-Funk – A Day At the Carnival (Benedek’s Freak Show Mix)
Dr. Strangeloop – Strange Utopia (Lawrence Grey’s Rat Hole Mix)
Daedelus – Off Angles Edges (Sahy Uhns’ Tension Remeditation)

After what they’ve shown us so far, we expect nothing but the best from this advancing label.

And here’s a little treat: track 2 from the Proximity One: Narrative Remixes, courtesy of xlr8r.
