The guys at Disciple just revealed a massive new enterprise: Disciple Round Table, a brand-new sub-label for artists currently on Disciple’s roster and beyond. The news broke with a live video from Disciple’s Facebook page, premiering a mini-mix of the forthcoming compilation for the new label, Knights of the Round Table Vol. 1.
Spearheading the label is none other than 12th Planet, who’s been working behind the scenes with Disciple leaders Myro and Dodge & Fuski. 12th Planet said Round Table was an idea that he, Myro, and Dodge came up with about a year ago.
“We had been friends for a few years and we were throwing around the idea of starting a new imprint while working in the studio together that was based solely on working closely with younger up-and-coming artists,” he said.
The compilation is packed with fresh riddim tracks and state-of-the-art dubstep bangers. Although the full compilation is yet to be revealed, participating artists have updated their profile picture to match the artwork for the compilation, including Phiso, Oolacile, and more. According to 12th, he selected the compilation’s artists by determining if he’d personally play their music in a set of his own.
“Bottom line — the music has to be dope,” he said.
And dope, it is. Some of the most exciting tracks to be revealed throughout the compilation’s release come from artists like Ivory and Virus Syndicate, INFEKT, Myro, and Virtual Riot. Some of the sounds you’ll hear on Knights of the Round Table Vol. 1 are ones you’ve never heard before; expect each track to exhibit unmatched sound design and creativity. 12th Planet took the time with this project to ensure each release is a quality one.
“I get to work with the extensive and well-versed Disciple team and scrutinize every single track that gets put forward, more so than I have in the past,” he said. “It’s quite simple: the goal of the label is to release quality music from artists on the come-up. We’re looking for the next guys pushing the envelope, always.”
Today’s release from Round Table comes from Disciple superstar Dubloadz with Answerd titled “Sludge Monster.” The title is apropos — it’s totally sludgy and heavy-hitting as hell. The shock value lies in the producers’ ability to take a dubstep track at 150 BPM and emulate a hard dance vibe in the second drop, then bring it back to all of its sludge-y glory in the concluding drop. Those who witnessed the b2b set from Dubloadz and PhaseOne at the Disciple Takeover in Los Angeles on September 2nd will remember how hard this collab went off. Additionally, 12th Planet is endlessly excited to share this track and the rest of the compilation with you.
“Dubloadz never disappoints,” he said. “He is a mainstay at Disciple and his collab for Knights of the Round Table Vol. 1 is a great follow-up to the first single ‘Send It.’ I can’t wait for the world to hear the rest of the album.”
