Gilles Peterson’s mission in life is to shed light on great music no matter the genre or sound, and his label Brownswood Recordings is designed to take this concept to new heights. Brownswood electr*c 2 is the second in a series of compilations unearthing electronic producers from around the world who stand out in their format.
Brownswood just posted a sample mix of Brownswood electr*c 2 a few days ago and the list is packed with brilliant souls from around the world. Perth, Manchester, Vancouver, San Francisco, Lugano, London… the list goes on. The music ranges from dubstep and two step to genres of bass music yet unnamed.
Hear the sampler below and keep an eye out for this comp.
Gilles Peterson has made a decades long career of doing what a true DJ does; leading the public to great music that they otherwise might not have heard. Through his Brownswood imprint, Peterson is passing some of the duties of 2011 to a couple of young European DJs whose taste he trusts enough to have them kick of a series called Worldwide Family.
Volume 1 features the British DJ Simbad and Belgian soul selector DJ Lefto. The duo, who have been involved with Brownswood through their respective careers, have pulled together a nice long blend of downtempo, glitch hop, straight up soul, and some unidentifiable genres that have yet to be named. The mix highlights each DJ’s ability to jump through styles while following a theme that, although carries through every track, is rather hard to put your finger on.
From dancefloor basics to rahashed sounds from every corner of the globe, this first edition of Worldwide Family opens up the door for a series with immense potential. Beatheads be ready, 2011 is going to be packed with gems like this record. Volume 1 is due out on January 3rd. Brownswood is wasting no time in the new year to get this stuff out.
