New from Margins ...

Out late last month as a name-your-price digital release on Bandcamp, six sumptuous mellow electro-house tracks from New Zealand’s Margins label, featuring new music from six local artists/producers. Well worth a download … 

Here’s the blurb from the label itself: 

New Zealand house and techno label MARGINS is seriously stoked to release MAC.002, a brand new compilation of underground New Zealand dance music. The second compilation and seventh release from MARGINS, MAC.002 showcases six choice cuts from a musically diverse group of budding Antipodean producers. 

The compilation opens with “Atlantic Warrior,” a melodic dancefloor-focused earworm from Auckland angels turned London lads, Manuel Darquart (Coastal Haze/Childsplay). The floor fillers continue with two hot house cuts from newcomers Robert Hattaway and Reebox. Things get a little trippy in the middle with a bizzaro acid cut from D. Tyrone, one half of dj kush boogie (Lobster Theremin). Auckland house artist Fly Nights then proceeds to calm things down, courtesy of the gentle percussion and gorgeous pads of “Soto,” before Wellington artist Ludus closes the compilation in style with the stunning “Bad Butter.”

With MAC.002, MARGINS continues to offer listeners from around the world a sneak peak into the weird world of New Zealand’s unexplored underground dance music scene.
