The Brooklyn promoter will inaugurate its label with a compilation entitled Purple Trax 1.
Brooklyn-based blog and promoter Weird Magic has announced the launch of its record label arm. Weird Magic launched back in 2010, hosting early performances from the likes of Grimes, A$AP Rocky and the Teklife crew while documenting Brookyln’s fascination with new age, machine-made dance music.
Purple Trax 1 collects tracks from both established artists, including Traxman, Terekke, Huerco S and Aurora Halal, as well as efforts from newcomers such as Librae, Sasha Desree, Far Out Far Out, Joe P, Sasha Jan Rezzie. The compilation also includes a contribution from Logan Takahashi, better known as one half of Teengirl Fantasy.
A Kickstarter campaign has been launched with the aim of pressing the compilation to purple vinyl. Weird Magic have also outlined their plans for the coming year on the crowdfunding page.
