Last month I wrote about the March’85 compilation Tracks 4 My Mom, which featured an acid track from Arctic. Well he is at it again, this time with his own Shook EP on Coyote Records. This release sits in the grime realm. I wanted to catch up with Arctic, whose been on my blog many times. So I hit up my Australian buddy and organized this new Disco Droppings interview. I take you inside his recent artist activities, which include collaborations with Seattle local Kid Smpl, London’s Rinse.fm and the DJ/producer Brackles.

Came across this compilation and you guys gotta’ make it yours. Showcasing an impressive range of styles; from acid to 2-step, garage, house and techno, this collection of tracks comes from the label March’85. I’m working on a Disco Droppings interview with the label head Ghostek, and my research led me to this release. Happy to see that my friends Arctic and Minerva are featured in the tracklist. Arctic opens the compilation with “Kings”, a track I heard on his Soundcloud a while back, hyped to see it get a proper release. A stand out favorite for me on Tracks 4 My Mom is Ed Motion’s “Everyday”. Perfection.
