The Melt Compilation Vol. 1

L.A.-based record label/artist collective thing The Melt just put out this compilation completely stacked with amazing artists.  Alongside the five resident producers at The Melt including Djemba Djemba and Gossamer, the compilation also has tracks from 14 other producers including Color Plus, C.Z., and RAJA among others.  If you’re looking for new producers who are leading the way in pushing electronic music to new exciting places and will probably have taken over the scene in a year or two, this is where to look.  Sub-genres on this compilation range from ambient to footwork to U.K. Garage without ever sounding out of place.  You can stream two of my favorite tracks off of it below, and stream and download the whole compilation after the jump.
