Various Artists - Natural Sounds

A record label with roots in El Paso, Texas, SoulfulxNature’s independent, borderlander ethos has massive global appeal. So too does the label’s Natural Sounds compilation LP, whose experimental electronic beats evoke a chill, soulful vibe. The 15-track album features contributions by many of SXN’s power players, including playlist favorites mvnners and Frythm.

 Movers and shakers from El Paso’s beat scene like Amy G. Dala also add to the mix, along with Hopeful Child, UNTHOTOF, and Ledezma. Together, Natural Sounds expresses the incredible potential of the beat movement to inspire, entertain, and illuminate the future of electronic music.
