VA - Worth The Weight Vol. 2: From The Edge (2014)

Punch Drunk Records presents the 2nd chapter in its Worth the Weight CD compilation series, selected once again by Peverelist. Since launching in 2006 with a vision of documenting Bristols burgeoning and idiosyncratic reaction to dubstep, Punch Drunk has become a byword for quality and daring. The label has become a tastemaker in its own right, defining an era within the citys rich musical heritage. The last eight years has seen Punch Drunk release bonafide classics from artists developed, encouraged and debuted by the label; some of whom have gone on to become internationally recognised artists.

The corner stones of Dubloaded, a club event that Pinch ran in conjunction with Peverelist, and Rooted Records, the record store managed by Peverelist, provided an era of fertile ground for local artists such as Headhunter, Appleblim, RSD and Joker. The first edition of Worth the Weight, featuring these artists and more, was released in 2010 and selected tracks from the first 4 years of the Bristol dubstep explosion.

After the wider dubstep scene went overground, moving away from its original roots and context, the Bristol scene recalibrated and reflected on those dynamic first few years. Peverelist was keen to keep the Punch Drunk momentum heading in a direction of mutation and innovation true to its original manifesto, unique to and reflective of Bristol.

Worth the Weight Volume 2 represents that second era, when a new school of Bristol artists were beginning to emerge. Many of them found their first releases at Punch Drunk and are featured on this compilation. Kahns first two 12s for the label were a dichotomy of colourful swung rhythms and heads down, deep and dark sound system music. Ekoplekz released two LPs for the label drawing influence from Cabaret Voltaire via King Tubby, defining his own plane of dystopian dub. Zhou, a duo from the citys Young Echo collective, released two 12s mastering their own esoteric perspective on heavyweight UK Dub grooves. Andy Macs UK house variants brought the funk and bounce back to Bristols clubs, whilst Tesselas pounding percussion tracks rained down relentlessly on dancefloors. Bass Clefs recent masterful and acclaimed psychedelic voyage through techno on his Reeling Skullways LP is represented alongside rising star Hodge whose Resolve 12 is surely a highlight of the labels catalogue.

This new compilation provides a perfect snapshot of a city in constant flux, seen through the eyes of a label with a unique perspective on its surroundings. Punch Drunk has always operated from the periphery, sticking to its guns and staying true to its raison dêtre. So here we are, 2014, Worth The Weight, selector please, From The Edge
