Smog Records has gathered a bass heavy crew to create their first label compilation entitled Smog City, out today. The LP consists of original productions from almost all the Smog Records producers and highlights the hard-style vibes of the West Coast. Lead by 12th Planet, Smog Records has become one of the leading dubstep labels in North America and Smog City is said to represent the label’s history with the sub-focused genre.
No stranger to bridging gaps between musical genres, Skrillex’s collaboration with reggae legend Damian Marley paid homage to the Jamaican dancehall that played such a crucial role in the development of the dubstep sound. On the forthcoming Make It Bun Dem After Hours EP, 6 distinctly different producers lend their styles to the dubstep maestro’s collaboration. With remixes from Culprate, Brodinski, French Fries, David Heartbreak, Flinch, and Alvin Risk, this EP showcases a wide range of styles that will appeal to the tastes of dance music fans from all camps. Listen to the exclusive stream below and tell us which remix your favorite is in the comments section.
Update: The EP will be released through OWSLA/Big Beat on August 28th.
