Compilation of the month
Various 'Club Chai Vol 1' (Club Chai)
While everyone has a different idea of what the club is supposed to sound like, most people agree on what the club is supposed to feel like – an experience in which you are simultaneously present in your body, but also able to transcend it through the music. Club Chai, the Oakland-based event series and curatorial project founded by 8ulentina and Foozool, has captured that feeling eloquently with their first compilation. Explicitly centering diasporic narratives, women and trans artists, DJs and producers in their work, here they showcase 21 tracks by artists from all over the world including DJ Haram, Florentino and Russell EL Butler. Running the spectrum from simmering bass music to experimental sound collages to syrupy pop, it creates a singular space for a variety of sounds and moods, with a cohesion not found in any other release right now.
