about

Barcelona based producer Filastine dropped his 2nd full-length release Dirty Bomb in early 2009 simultaneously on five record labels: Jarring Effects/EU, Soot/US&UK, Romz/JP, Uberlingua/AU, Post World Industries/Digital. Critics called it- the prototype of globalized urban sound (Prefix), awesome & delicate...hybrids so fluent they defy classification (Pitchfork), 180 degrees away from stultifying, one-dimensional track making (The Stranger). With this record in pocket, Filastine circled the earth twice in a 100-stop tour that began at a squat in Jakarta, Indonesia, tore up Europe’s most respected festivals (Sonar, the Berlin Transmediale, Amsterdam Dance Event), and ended in a cloud of teargas outside the Climate Summit in Copenhagen.

Along this journey he met the producers behind these remixes. The result is a broad collection of bottom-heaving rumblers, shot with sinister melodies, chop-shop vocals, lofi dub echoes and atypical breaks, constructed with a depth of both frequency and concept. Contributers include Berlin superheroes Jahcoozi, Venezuelan exile Cardopusher, French post-breakcore genius Electromeca, fellow-traveler Maga Bo out of Brazil, Canadians Ill Gates & phowa representing the vital North American underground, and the anarchist booty-bass collective Deep Throat X of Tokyo. 100% talent. 0% industry-fueled hype. Rooted in dubstep, Baltimore breaks, glitch-hop, and raggacore, these tracks are influenced by all of the above- but none can be so easily defined.

Genres, like national borders, rely on division and exclusivity; this is the sound of ambiguity, experimentation, and broken fences. Call it what you want, transnational bass, global ghettotech, or simply music; it is the sound of now that must be heard, and we aim to deliver it.
