FoF Music's Bumper 5 Year Compilation
Shlohmo, Jerome LOL, Groundislava, feature on LA label collection.
FoF Music (Friends Of Friends Music), a collective/label from LA, have always been ahead of the game when it comes to guiding us towards left-leaning electronic sounds.
Their founding philosophy and approach to releasing was even different. Driven by the philosophy that we hear about new music through friends, they have always put out tracks in a way that is not only more involving for the artist (A&R, artwork, marketing) but more importantly truly enticing for the fans, products "worth the hard earned money spent to create and purchase". In their time, FoF Music have led the charge for visionary artists like Shlohmo, Salva, LOL Boys etc., backing those artists as they were breaking (lots of Shlohmo's official back catalogue can be found in their shop). They've always put out great free compilations too, full of one-of-a-kind, forward-thinking electronic music - like Show Me The Future #1 (grab it free here) and #2 (grab that free here).
It's their five year anniversay and to celebrate, they've gone and made us all a present! 5oFoF: Five Years of Friends of Friends showcases their family's eclectic past work, with past stuff from their key artists, as well as tunes from Groundislava, Kyson, Jerome LOL, Rome Fortune, Shigeto and Nicolas Jaar.
