On March 14th, 2014, Dizzy Records released it’s first compilation album “RED” consisting of an eclectic mix of talented musicians from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Executive produced by Dizzy Records and KluSlim, “RED” features up-and-coming hip-hop artists and electronic producers such as Robbing Jane, Whompus Cats, SOTA, and more. Ranging from progressive electronic melodies to classic hip-hop inspiration, this compilation captures the unique sounds of an emerging music scene.
The six artists featured on the album are Badguytraps (Matt Hawkins), (+)afekt (Ryan Mancuso), SOTA (Brian Greene), KluSlim (Adam Carrillo), Whompus Cats (Ben Bryan), and Robbing Jane (Blake LeJeune). The album came together in a little under a year and features tracks from the upcoming EPs to be released by each individual artist. It represents the growing music scene that thrives in the shadow of New Orleans and is the first volume in a series of compilations to be released through the Dizzy Records.
Here’s a short review of the six tracks:
1 . Flight Lessons by BadGuyTraps – It’s an Electronica song with funky sounds effects. This guy has definitely a distinctive style!
2. What To Say by (+)afekt – Instrumental track with electronic music flavors. I consider this is a good tune to chillout featuring atmospheric textures that are nice to our ears.
3. Times New Roman by SOTA – As a graphic designer I’m happy to know that there’s finally an anthem for one of the most used fonts in the world! This is 100% Hip Hop music and lyrics were creatively made.
4. jiveMIND by KluSlim – A lovely intro and exceptionally synths. There is a progession of sounds and a great variety of melodies that will make you move your body!
5. Lifeboat by Whompus Cat – What I love about this compilation, is that all the songs are pleasing for our ears and this track is a clear example of it. Modern electronic melodies that will brighten the night!
6. Mid – Tro by Robbing Jane feat. Small Civilian & Whompus Cats – This is a relaxed Hip Hop track with a great combination of talented singers. Nice track that serves as the last tune of this interesting material that was made for an ecletic audience.

Innovation is the best word that describes Valentino Khan‘s EP, ‘French Fried’. This 4-track material is filled with dance floor rhythms. A new addition to the Mad Decent family you won’t want to miss. Best of all, it’s now available on all streaming platforms.
According to the producer himself, the whole tracks are inspired by French artists that set an important precedent in America’s electronic music.

DØBER Returns To Protocol With Riding Tech/Electro-Influenced “Tear The Roof”
DØBER is back on Protocol with his new single “Tear The Roof”, a party-ready track that follows up on his debut “Twisted” EP from earlier this year. The release received a strong welcome, amassing over 130k streams on Spotify since its release on February 14th. The newcomer’s propensity for intense club music, that toes the line between electro and tech-house, is once again evident in the form of heavy percussive synths over a driving bassline and distorted, catchy vocals. “Tear The Roof” is uniquely different from previous tracks “Make It Better” and “Losing My Mind,” which channeled more groovy and trap influences, respectively, indicating that DØBER has more up his sleeve than meets the eye.

Nicky Romero and the Protocol crew can always be counted on for cutting-edge new music, melding a variety of genres for exciting and unexpected sounds. Their latest additions feel right at home with that mantra, bringing a fusion of tech-house and electro sound with plenty of grooves to the table. DØBER joins a full roster of talented producers such as Thomas Gold, Deniz Koyu, Marc Benjamin, Teamworx, Maximals, and more. The talented newcomer draws his inspiration from artists such as Dogblood, ZHU, and Gesaffelstein, promising plenty of dark, hard-hitting tunes to add to the label’s repertoire. Protocol’s mixture of veteran heavyweights and fresh new talent makes for some of the most exciting releases in the game, along with the unlimited potential for collaborations. We look forward to more releases from DØBER and the rest of the Protocol team coming soon!
