Nearly year end, eh? When it’s year-end-list-time at magazines and blogs, record labels usually show what they’ve got in store for the next year. So do Ninja Tune, Big Dada and Brainfeeder Records with their ‘New Artists for 2012’ compilation. And it does sound very promising, what the two traditional British bass music labels and Flying Lotus‘s US Brainfeeder have lined up for 2012.
We already told you in late summer 2010 that Lorn was ‘One to watch‘, he recently signed for new records to Ninja Tune. Lapalux was mentioned here several times as a remixer of artists such as Gwen Stefani and Crystal Fighters, the 2012 compilation comes with his rework of Fink‘s album title track, ‘Perfect Darkness’. Furthermore, Austria’s finest producer Dorian Concept (more on him in our Slices feature) makes his girl giggle, Slugabed asks to turn off the sun and Taylor McFerrin is looking for a place in Brainfeeder’s heart.
And then there’s Eskiboy Wiley, who’ll be releasing his album ‘Evolve Or Be Extinct’ in January 2012, shortly after his gig at Electronic Beats Festival Warsaw in December. The compilation comes with his track ‘Numbers in Action’, reworked by legendary producer Dobie.
