One of our favourite DIY labels, Astral Black, has revealed the latest in their future-facing Frass FM series, showcasing some of Glasgow – and the UK’s - most exciting beat producers.

‘Frass FM 3’ celebrates “three years of successfully joining the dots between Glasgow & London’s new-wave hip hop and instrumental grime scenes”, and features local producers such as DJ Milktray, Bushido, Rapture 4D, Dressin Red and Dvsty.

As we’ve come to expect from the series, the compilation provides a smoking snapshot of Glasgow’s burgeoning beat scene, providing a platform for some of the city’s freshest producers.

Listen to the compilation below and download via Bandcamp with the option to ‘name your price’. You can also purchase the comp on a pink cassette, which comes with a hand screen-printed sleeve by Oscar Whale of Broadstreet Basement Press (only 10 left at the time of typing).

Astral Black’s DJ Milktray, Rapture 4D and Bushido feature at a special GLA x LDN showcase as part of the Red Bull Music Academy Tour at The Poetry Club on Oct 13th.
