Big Beat Records celebrates Detroit on latest ‘Ignition’ compilation
Big Beat Records has been a home to releases across many different sounds in dance music’s history. While its latest releases range from funky electronica á la Chromeo, bass from WHIPPED CREAM, or pop from Galantis, the label’s cross-genre style is inspired by its roots in house music. In their latest edition of the Big Beat: Ignition compilation series, they’ve chosen to honor that history by paying homage to the place that gave birth to the sound that started it all: Detroit.
On Big Beat Ignition: Detroit, the label has compiled an impressive track listing from house artists from across the globe, including Vanilla Ace, breakout star Rebuke, UK tastemaker Siege, and veteran Mike Vale. Hitting a range of styles and sounds, the compilation highlights house’s grounding in disco, hip-hop, and the warehouse parties in which its growth was nurtured.
