Glasgow Underground celebrates 20 years with ‘Underground Sound of Glasgow 2017’ album
Friday 10th November 2017 | Cristina
Glasgow Underground have unveiled a new compilation to celebrate its twenty years at the cutting edge of the Scottish music scene. Curated by label owner Kevin McKay, ‘Underground Sound of Glasgow’ is filled with exclusive cuts from label affiliates and the finest Glaswegian newcomers.
Compiled of 15 tracks, the impressive collection of work features tracks from Hammer, JD Twitch, Jasper James, Ceol, Auntie Flo and Kevin McKay himself. Encapsulating the sound of a city across the broad and diverse musical selection, the album takes in influence from the nugroove, italo house and balearic beats that Kevin fell in love with from his experiences at Sub Club. From Auntie Flo’s downtempo tribal sound, Hammer’s adventurous synth-heavy melodies, Ceol’s 80s groove and Jasper James’ feel-good remix of Romanthony’s ‘Bring You Up’.
“The clubs and DJs of Glasgow inspired the label and so I wanted to ask my favourite producers from the city if they would make a track that was specifically designed for the Glasgow crowds,” he explains. “I’m really happy with the result and I think with tracks from the likes of Jasper James, JD Twitch, Hammer, and Domenic Cappello and alongside some brilliant producers that people might not have heard of, you can really hear what Glasgow Underground, and the city itself, is all about right now."
