Brownswood electr*c

The electr*c series gives an annual snapshot of the perpetually shifting and evolving electronic music spectrum that we love so much. We released the first Brownswood electr*c compilation in June 2010 featuring then up-and-comers (now game changers) Mosca, Shlohmo, 16bit and Mount Kimbie. The following year we unveiled further excursions courtesy of a fresh crop of talent including Ta-ku, DJG, Monky, Koreless and Stray. Volume 3 dropped in September 2012, crammed with heat from Djrum, Kidsuke, Anushka, Metabeats and more.

In June of 2010, Gilles Peterson’s mighty Brownswood collective (specifically Peterson’s right hand man Alex Stevenson) hand-picked artists to form a compilation that represented the multi-dimensional, kaleidoscopic landscape of the label’s musical interests. A tight, bright roundup of bass music at that sliver of time, ‘Brownswood Electr*c’ bred a new wave of producers and paved the way for a new sound, capturing the beats and personalities of then-up-and-comers (now game-changers) George Fitzgerald, Mount Kimbie, Mosca, Rockwell and Pearson Sound, among many others. The collection found fans in DJ Mag (nominating it for their ‘Best of British’ Awards that year), Martyn and Hemlock’s Untold, who aptly summed it up: “It’s a really spot-on snapshot of the grey area of “dance” music that keeps getting messier.”

Dance culture moves so fast. Forging onwards, but simultaneously zig-zagging through its past, picking up sonic references which appear as quickly as they disappear. With the ‘Brownswood Electr*c’ series we’re simply attempting to highlight the depth and breadth of the electronic space…and the exceptional quality within.

Vol.2 followed a year later jammed with exclusive, previously unreleased material – reaping the rewards of endless online trawling, Soundcloud sifting and Bandcamp rummaging. Now we’re very proud to present Brownswood electr*c 3 unveiling brand new heat from a host of rising stars…
