Dreaming Vinyl will launch their label DV Records this month with a new charity compilation, ‘Dreaming Vinyl Compilation 01’. Listen to GoodMostlyBad’s ‘Very Berry’ below.
Having built its name commissioning animated vinyl stickers for labels including XL Recordings, Blue Note, and Rhythm Section, the AV-focused music discovery platform expands into the labelsphere with nine exhilarating and eccentric movers for a great cause. Out 30th November, ‘DV01’ veers from breakbeat, bass-driven club and techno into shimmering IDM and ambient, and features contributions from producers such as Elphin, LUXE, Impey, Tim Reaper, Herman, Ikävä Pii, DJ ojo, Sister Zo, and more.
On ‘Very Berry’, London-based GoodMostlyBad – who also featured on SouqSounds’ compilation in aid of Turkey and Syria earthquake relief – serves up a slab of bass-heavy rave gear. Held in place with lashings of crunchy synthwork and an ear-tickling Indian vocal sample, it’s a throbbing addition to the Boxout FM resident’s burgeoning catalogue of bangers.
Each track on ‘DV01’ comes paired with a visualiser, designed and animated by Dreaming Vinyl co-founders – Jay Vaz and Lawrie Miller – who have a deep interest in audio-visual relationships. You can check out some of their visualisers and animations here.
Funds raised by the compilation will be donated to MAP Charity, an alternative education provider working with young people in Leeds who are unable to access the mainstream school system.
‘DV01’ is out 30th November via DV Records. Pre-order the compilation here, and listen to ‘Very Berry’ below.
