Listen Down: Compilation of Loops by Arca, Mica Levi, 100 gecs, Four Tet, Blood Orange, More

The collection of 1.8 second loops by a who’s who of electronic producers will be released this Friday.

By Bubba Krishnamurti

London-based label PLZ Make It Ruins have announced a new 40-track compilation of loops. The label is run by dance producer and Frank Ocean collaborator Vegyn.

Locked Groove is a collaborative effort between PLZ Make It Ruins and Arts Council England. Each featured loop is *exactly* 1.8 seconds long “and has been crafted with the intention of being looped repeatedly, creating a uniquely hypnotic rhythm.”

Contributors to the collection of loops include Blood Orange, Arca, Clairo, 100 gecs, Kenny Beats, Dominic Fike, Four Tet, and Vegyn himself. Artwork for the project comes from Isha Dipika and Travis Brothers.

Proceeds from the sale of the record and its accompanying merch will be apportioned between the ACLU and Liberty UK.
