PLZ Make It Ruins, the London based label run by Veygn, has announced a charity compilation album with a twist ‘Locked Grooves’ .
The project will feature contributions from the likes of Blood Orange, Arca, Dijon, Clairo, 100 gecs, Kenny Beats, Dominic Fike, Four Tet, Floating Points, Mura Masa, King Krule, Shygirl and lots more.
Partnering up with Arts Council England for the release, each track on the record is exactly 1.8 seconds long and has been crafted with the intention of being looped repeatedly, creating a uniquely hypnotic rhythm.
The album takes inspiration from the practice of locked grooves: an abstract loop intentionally placed at the end of a record which helps DJs to seamlessly blend tracks after the song’s final moments. Throughout the project, the featured artists give their own takes on the formula with a host of different sounds and atmospheres.
Releasing exclusively on vinyl, the project will launch with a one-off NTS special on December 4, hosted by Vegyn, that explores the music of all the project’s contributors, as well as including a mix created from all 40 loops on the project.
