Folie Douce Compilation II out now

9 August 2013

Folie Douce have dropped their second compilation of their favourite artists from around the world. Featuring tracks by the likes of Bad Dancer and Poolboy92, as well as excellent covers of Jennifer Lopez and A$AP rocky. Dutch label Paradisiaca -responsible for some excellent bass releases like Drippin x Copout- is represented by HYDRABADD. But our favourite is Miss Eaves laying rhymes over Surfing Leons’ ‘What You Gonna Do?’, her flow reminiscent of a cross between old school Salt’ N’ Pepa and Zebra Katz collaborator Njena Reddd Foxxx.

The cutting edge quintet of promoters and party-throwers from Liège have been going since 2010 and are responsible for introducing a slew of artists to France and Belgian, including Sinjin Hawke and Mykki Blanco.
