Brownswood Bubblers Twelve // Double-CD edition announced

July 26, 2017

Following overwhelming demand, Brownswood Bubblers Twelve parts 1 and 2 are being combined for a deluxe double CD edition.

Compiled by DJ, record collector and label boss Gilles Peterson, Brownswood Bubblers Twelve is here. Combining the two parts released across two vinyl editions, the idea remains the same – shining a light on new and under-the-radar talent.

The roll-call of artists who’ve appeared on the Brownswood Bubblers series is impressive. Boasting alumni like Flying Lotus, Dam-Funk and Floating Points, the compilations have long championed the rising stars of underground music. The first edition since 2014, Brownswood Bubblers Twelve picks up where the last one left off – by looking to the acts set to make waves in 2017 and beyond.

With a whole three years having passed since the last Bubblers was released, too much exciting music has amassed to fit onto one release. For that reason, it was split into two parts – making room for the whole, expansive spectrum of new sounds, they were divided across two vinyl releases. Now, they’ve been brought together on a bumper CD edition.

The new compilation arrives as Peterson’s independent label Brownswood Recordings (from which the series takes its name) tails off celebrations for its 10th birthday. Plus, they draw draws on two talents, in Broadstrokes and Skinny Pelembe, who’ve been nurtured through Peterson’s Future Bubblers programme – an Arts Council-funded scheme, it’s about helping new artists into the industry.

Check out part 1 and part 2 now, and head here to pre-order the CD.
