We are proud to present our latest release, the debut EP from the incredibly talented mHz. Subtle intricacies and stark beauty make Mohammad Zareei’s “Hg” the perfect soundtrack for our transition into the fall season.
And now, a little about Hg in his own words.
“Although extremely toxic, mercury was traditionally thought of as the First Matter, from which all metals were formed. Yet, exposure to this exotic cold-silver looking liquid metal can cause severe health damages. In this EP, I used mercury as a metaphor for noise: an exotic singularity that can be dangerous, disturbing, and harmful, while being the richest source of all sounds. Pushing the limit to the fine line between harshness and pleasure, “Hg” is an effort to create an amalgam of trifling noises of everyday life, glitches of the machine, and digital oscillations on a persistence pulse. Beat and noise are fused here to make each other more interesting, taming the harshness, while preserving the provocativeness.”

We’re super excited to finally release Volume Five of our Beat Stew mixtape series! Lose yourself in dreamy dance beats and nod your head to the serious future funk. Featuring 10 new tracks from the Proximal crew and 20 more from a crop of seriously talented producers curated by Proximal’s label-head, Sahy Uhns, Beat Stew Volume 5 is our biggest (and we think best) yet. Joined by some familiar names from Beat Stews past like Co.fee, Mat/matix and Solar Shield and a ton of fresh talent like Maggey Pain, Banjax and Gaszia & Xian, we promise this mix will not disappoint.
Beat Stew has always been and will always remain a free mixtape, but we’ve offered it up as a Pay-What-You-Want release through Bandcamp this time because every donation helps an independent label like ourselves and we wanted to give people the option of throwing a couple dollars our way for 30 free tracks. Big thanks to those who have donated already! You can still type in $0 and download for free though and we’ll still love you. Almost as much.

RAPPER, NOTE, ON THE SUPERCONDUCTOR REMIXES
“With the original version of Superconductor having such a unique production style, we thought it would be dope to get some other producers’ take on our sound. We reached out to some beat guys that we respect and started getting some nice joints from them. The timing was crazy because by the time we gathered the remixes, Simon had come over to California from Copenhagen to work on our LP. We were able to sit together, live and direct, and vibe to all of the tracks before we took them to Proximal. This joint is a great mix of styles from a lot of up-and-coming heat bandits from all over the world that give our debut EP new life. A nice lil appetizer to hold folks over until our full length is out of the oven. We are proud to present it. ENJOY!”
