Yet another splendid new compilation unleashed its magnificence this week. This one comes from West Coast label and collective Foundations Recordings, led by Gladkill and Sugarpill. After launching their new label earlier this year (read our interview with Gladkill and Sugarpill about Foundations Recordings HERE), Foundations has already put forth an impressive amount of material in the form of singles.
For the new “Paragon Collective: Vol. 1” compilation, the label called upon an arsenal of producers, established and blooming. Most producers featured on the compilation have already released music through the label previously.
However, Foundations’ selection of talent is impeccable. It’s clear the label is searching for quality music- rather than just number of Soundcloud plays. Of course it calls out some serious heavyweights, including both label heads, as well as G Jones; but there’s plenty of new West Coast names to delve into as well.
The sound of the compilation attaches it pretty distinctively to the West Coast. Deep bass; slow, rhythmic drums; atmospheric synthesizers; spacey sound design. Some of these tracks have already seen the light of day, but now you can get them all in one place, and all for FREE.
