Boxon Records is Gonna Make Your Ears Bleed

Boxon Records is a French label I've loved for some time now. With a collective of artists including Gooseflesh, Tom Deluxx, Dilemn, Eclier, The Boomzers, Costello and remixers including Toxic Avenger, Les Petits Pilous, Cyberpunkers, Belzebass, Saint Pauli, aUtOdiDakT and many others, it is easy to see why this Bordeaux based label holds a special place in my heart.
However, over the past few months, with a the string of great releases, Boxon Recs has popped up on my radar as one of the most interesting and exciting music label around. Dilemn's Better Worlds LP is at the top of my list for BEST ALBUMS of the year. The Boomzers, Rowentah EP is absolutely stuffed full of bangers and T.Raumschmiere's brand new The Rave is On EP is no different. If you aren't yet acquainted with Boxon or you're just excited to see what the future holds for the label, please check out the following.

Makes Me Bloody is the third compilation album from Boxon Records. They brought it hard with 1 & 2 but 3 is lining up to be an absolute stomper. A number of previews and teaser videos are out already. You can check out a few linked through the tracklist below. And you can swing by Boxon's webpage for a full preview of their upcoming compilation. Also, I highly recommend that you check out The Zombie Kids teaser video, below the tracklist. It is definitely the best teaser video I have seen since Q.G.'s zombie rave or Huoratron's Corporate Occult madness from Cedric Blaisbios. Watch the video teaser by Hugo Cos for The Zombie Kids' new track L'Ecole here.

As I said before, Dilemn's new album Better Worlds is easily the best album to come out so far this year. Ed Banger artists promising new LPs like SebastiAn, Justice and Mr. Oizo will have their work cut out for them if they are hoping to dethrone Dilemn's masterpiece debut LP from top spot at album of the year. The album has elements of Electro, House and Dubstep/Electrostep that come together to to produce 52 minutes of bangin' beats. The album is so diverse it's really hard to describe without going track by track but roughly it sounds like Daft Punk meets Toxic Avenger meets Skrillex with a dash of Mr. Oizo and Phantoms Revenge. But you can't compare it to anyone else really. Check out some tracks below and purchase the whole album here.
