The latest edition in the 'Clyde Built' series is vast and expansive spanning the breadth of 56 tracks and featuring a wide spectrum of abstract electronic and experimental music emerging from the city. The compilation is the fifth in a series run by the record label, Huntleys & Palmers and previous editions have featured appearances from Big Miz, Lo Kindre, Hammer, LAPS and more.
The latest compilation features contributions from Cru Servers, Shawlands Arcade, The Wasp and many more under various monikers and guises. Label boss Andrew Thomson reflects on pieceing the release together:
"Over the past 6 months I’ve travelled to some of the worlds biggest cities and with the greatest respect, nowhere beats the scene in Glasgow in terms of the diverse creativity happening.
Despite being twice the size of any of its previous successors, this year’s cast of tomorrow’s talent is no different - owing a lot to many random encounters and the community spirit as a whole for it coming together in the way it did. Life is the most effective algorithm.
Scene stalwarts rub shoulders with the freshest of faces - turning in a solid cross section of contemporary hip hop, alongside pop edits, ambient, free jazz and plenty of cutting edge 4/4 bangers in all shapes and sizes - including political anthem of our time, MULK! Rest assured, it won’t be the last you’ll hear of this lot."
The compilation is free to download HERE.
