Labels seem to be a dime a dozen these days, but rightfully so. Dope music needs an outlet, and it's easier for the best to shine through if they are aggregated with the other top releases of their respective styles. For most of the 9-to-5 world, established labels like Mad Decent and Dirtybird do the sorting for us so the hunt isn't as strenuous. If you're one of the more fortunate ones that can go to a random party night hosted by "that label" your friend's been going on about, you might get to meet the rising collectives yourself. In fact, that's exactly how we met the booty tech artists of LA's Perfect Driver label.
Though relatively new, these guys have already been featured on Diplo & Friends, Mad Decent's Block Party, and in the playlists of several prominent house DJs. Comprised of Matthew Anthony, Ballast, WUKI, Aaron Snapes, Wood Holly, and Dirtybird's Mark Starr, Perfect Driver pushes the established limits of house into the realm of deep dark booty tech that gets your ass shaking and head cranking. To get you started on the label and what they're all about, we're proud to bring you Ballast's latest release and accompanying remixes from WUKI and Matthew Anthony.
The label will be releasing a massive compilation at the end of June, so keep your eyes and ears perked.
