Grime don Terror Danjah will toast his Hardrive label on a new compilation.
Terror Danjah’s had a jam-packed few years, releasing his The Dark Crawler LP on Hyperdub and getting the retrospective treatment on Planet Mu’s essential Gremlinz (The Instrumentals 2003-2009) compilation. His Hardrive label, meanwhile, had something of a fallow 2012, releasing next to nothing. As Resident Advisor report, Hardrive will make a new bid for the spotlight next month with a state-of-the-label compilation, featuring a stack of associates and label regulars.
Hardrive Presents Hardwired will assemble a host of material from a bunch of Hardrive alumni. Hard-edged funky/grime producer Champion makes a pair of appearances, and does futureshocked grime producer P Jam. D.O.K. and Mz Bratt also contribute tracks, as do non-Hardrivers Zed Bias, Lex Envy, Swifta Beater and Swindle. Remixes arrive courtesy of Royal-T, FaltyDL and Bok Bok. There are some familiar friends too: see 2011 Joker/Terror Danjah team-up ‘Gully Goon Estate’ and Kode9’s ‘Ice’, last heard on Ben UFO’s Rinse 16 mix.
