Exclusive: DJ Earl – Off Molly

Moveltraxx, the French ghetto club music label headed up by Big Dope P, has a long lasting relationship with Teklife. While DJ Earl has been present on the last few of its compilations, other members of the transcendent footwork crew have appeared on Moveltraxx releases since as early as 2010. Indeed, it would appear that Big Dope P saw what was coming out of Chicago a while before we all did. This shouldn’t come as particularly surprising however given his track record as a purveyor of club music from all over America (and the world for that matter), including recent forays into Baltimore and Jersey.

Encapsulating this ethos was Street Bangers Factory Vol. 1, the first in a new series of compilations from Moveltraxx. Its name renders the content self-explanatory, and the bangers in question come from the likes of Dudley Slang, MikeQ and Divoli S’vere. One of the highlights for us was certainly DJ Earl’s fiery footwork number “Bring Ya Click” and so we’re delighted to be giving you the exclusive of his effort for Vol. 2, “Off Molly”. We’ll let the track speak for itself but, safe to say, it’s a welcome addition to Earl’s hypnotic and already impressive catalogue. Street Bangers Factory Vol. 2 also features tracks from Feadz & Big Dope P (which has already premiered here), Imami, EQ Why and Dudley Slang, as well as a remix of Ezekiel from Mighty Mark, TT The Artist & Mike-Mike ZOME. Be sure to cop the full length EP when it drops on the 9th March (Juno)/16th March (iTunes).
