Launched earlier this year in May, Broken District is a label birthed to explore the intersection of its founder's influences, taking in jazz, house, broken beat, funk, soul, and more experimental sounds. The label's inaugural release, a VA featuring Momla, Marian Tone, Jus Jam, Yepes, Plae Casi, and Jeppe Wolmer, perfectly encapsulated the sound with five world-class tracks.
Now, the label is back with its second release, continuing its VA series and expanding the Broken District sonic signature to deep house, nu-disco, and instrumental hip-hop. With a handful of the artists returning and a set of new recruits, the release will feature Jus Jam, Momla, Duktus, Marian Tone, Sam Irl, and System Olympia, with a set of solo and collaborative tracks setting the mood for summer.
In support of the release, the label has offered up Duktus and Marian Tone's funk-filled "Better Chill," a jazzy, soul-inflicted outing in the vein of true old-school West Coast hip-hop vibes, available via WeTransfer below.
