Premiere: Hood Joplin & Text Chunk – Stranger


Thank god for broken promises. Paris-based label Moveltraxx claimed that the previous edition in their Street Bangers Factory series would be the final one… but lo and behold, back by popular demand, SBF #10 is set for release next week! Featuring contributions from the likes of Mr. Mitch and DJ Manny, it's home to six party-starting cuts that range from ballroom to sample-heavy juke to haunting electro pop.

We're premiering a track from Canadian footwork producer Hood Joplin, who's been playing shows with the likes of Flying Lotus and DJ Taye, and was a recent finalist in Serato's Sample Challenge. 'Stranger', her collaboration with fellow Canuck Text Chunk, is an elegiac 160bpm banger that sounds just like the light at the end of the tunnel.

Also… London people! Moveltraxx are throwing a free label party at Ace Hotel's Miranda Bar tonight, and you can RSVP here.

Street Bangers Factory 10 is out December 7th via Moveltraxx, pre-order it here.
