Harsh Riddims—a newly founded tape label based in Atlanta, Georgia—has dropped a new compilation to serve as its inaugural release, featuring fresh productions from predominantly South Eastern-based talents such as Divine Interface, Rekchampa, and Atlanta duo Broodlings, whose sleek contribution to the collection is featured here. Built around a lightly jacking rhythm, "Champagne" rolls out a number of digital-age synthlines to ride atop its muted chords and mechanical percussion touches, yielding a production that leans much more into a house sound than we're used to from the commonly footwork-minded Broodlings pair. In addition to the download offered here, the entire 11-track Harsh Riddims Vol. 1 comp can be streamed after the jump, and the cassette version of the collection can be purchased directly from the label's Bandcamp.
