Woozy production, cryptic track titles and no artist credits. 

Avant-pop provocateur Dean Blunt has dropped a new compilation, Muggy Vol. 1, on World Music Group, the label founded by Blunt and Inga Copeland in 2012.

In true Bluntian fashion, the nine short tracks feature a prominent use of samples, esoteric lyrics and gnomic track titles. Perhaps most notably, the release has no artists credited, despite it being listed as a various artists compilation.

The compilation follows Blunt’s appearance on a number of tracks on A$AP Rocky’s most recent album Testing. Last year, Blunt released the free album Hotep under his Blue Iverson alias, also via World Music Group.

Muggy Vol. 1 is available to stream and for free download now. Check out the cover art and tracklist below.
