’Jack Nagz, Danny Green – Aquafinity (Original Mix)’

A few months back we covered a Hippie Sabotage show in San Francisco put on by Subculture, an up ‘n coming local collective. The crew have been bubbling in the scene here for a while now bringing cross-genre, forward-thinking artists including Kill FrenzyJai Wolf and Falcons to SF all the while presenting their own distinct styles as DJs in the process. As of late, the crew have been throwing down at 1015 Folsom, one of our favorite spots in the city, playing support at an upcoming show there this Friday.

Yesterday, Subculture stepped out of their encompassing role as DJs, tastemakers and promoters releasing their first official EP of all original tunes. Featuring productions from Jack NagzDanny Green and Justin WavesSubculture Vol. 1 fits perfectly with the collective’s dedication to progressive electronic music with a focus on bass-driven compositions. The project’s opener “Aquafinity,” sets the tone for the remainder of the project, which you can listen to below, creating a distinct atmospheric, ethereal vibe. As the EP progresses, though, you can hear an array of styles displayed–playful production techniques on “On My Mind” a straight trap banger with “IC$,” and finally a fitting culmination on the far-out, intoxicating closer “Project 1.”

Subculture Vol. 1 feels like a natural next step for the crew, who’ve clearly been paying close attention to the current direction of dance music, while displaying promise by simultaneously introducing a style all their own. If you’re digging the project, make sure to check out Subculture’s Soundcloud page where they also have some great mixes along with interviews with a number of the artists they’ve hosted for shows. You can grab a free download of their debut EP here.
