Pick of the Day – August 22nd: Proximity One: Narrative of a City (various)

Various artists – Proximity One: Narrative of a City

This album represents LA, in a widescreen landscape view.  It’s not supposed to be any completely together – I think it’s supposed to just put you up on what the latest is, in as full a view 20 tracks can get you, within the “cool” scene of Los Angeles.  And it is pretty cool….I dig the variety you get from track to track.  You got the dubstep, the weird shit, downtempo dubby stuff with the bottom heavy thumps, the old school stuff (via Dam Funk), etc.  It’s just a nice overview of what the city has to offer as of 2010.  Even if you’re not from LA, or even near it (like my situation), you feel like your somewhere else……with a house party with people you actually like.  Features the likes of Teebs, Dam Funk, Daedelus, Shlohmo, Benedek, etc.   Recommended.
