Big Dope P has been ahead of the game for longer than we’ve been running this record label.
From Paris but currently based in London, his Moveltraxx label has been releasing cutting edge club music for over a decade, including releases by key figures from Jersey club (DJ Tameil, DJ Jayhood) and footwork (DJ Rashad, Traxman) before most European labels were aware of their music.
As a producer and DJ, he’s one of the best out, drawing from his encyclopaedic knowledge of club music worldwide to build hard, fast and ignorant club tracks on his MPC. Last year’s Hit Da Blokk EP is already a classic, and we’re psyched to have him follow that with Off Da Bottle, his debut on Local Action. On remix duty, Jersey Club king DJ Sliink re-works the track as only he can, while Her Records’ co-founder Sudanim stretches it out for a heavyweight drum workout.
For Off Da Bottle’s artwork we teamed up with France’s best streetwear brand WRUNG, who will be releasing a series of Off Da Bottle t-shirts this Summer. Also watch out for a series of Off Da Bottle parties in London and elsewhere.
Released 17 June 2016
