A new compilation will celebrate '10 Years of Bass Culture'

Parisian favourite D'Julz will release a new compilation, '10 Years of Bass Culture', which celebrates a decade of his imprint.

It features ten tracks from a range of label associates, including Mr. G, Lady Blacktronika and Sebo K. These have been split across three 12" records released in September, October and November; on December 2, the compilation will be made available in its entirety on digital and streaming.

D'julz explains, "When I started up the label, the idea was to bring through styles of house and techno that I was missing. Those simple but effective timeless dance floor tracks that have character and style, away from the conventional. To seek out a new generation of producers that would give a fresh interpretation of the sound I'd always pushed in my DJ career, but also to bring artists who I admired since day one, who were encapsulating the vision I had."

He continues, "Reflecting on Bass Culture today, I’m happy that I managed to accomplish just that. Staying relevant but true to the original concept while music trends were coming and going, continuing to find fresh talent that excites me, and invite those established artists I love. This compilation has been a long time in the making and I could not be prouder to release these tracks to mark 10 years.

You can grab copies of the vinyl here, here and here.
