Honey Badger Records, a borderline conventional dance label based in Seoul, has released the fourth installment of their HBRTRX compilation series, and despite having little or no access to dance floors, all efforts to wean themselves away from a club sound have been neglected on this release.

According to JNS, a producer, DJ, and founding member of Honey Badger, as painful as the band’s inability to perform in clubs has been, the band’s unwavering optimism has remained intact. “According to the producers, there is no difference between this and our previous compilations in terms of content; this series is solely intended for use on the dance floor. Given that we’ve been in this pandemic situation for nearly two years, I was a little concerned, but I ultimately decided to release our annual series at the conclusion. I am hoping that these tracks will be able to be played at venues or festivals in the near future.”

A diverse range of artists contribute to the 10 tracks that comprise ‘HBRTRX Vol.4′. These include Closet Yi, Mignon, Radiofear, J E L L V A K O, Natsumi Hirota, Seo John, Two Tone Shape, and the label’s original founders Jesse You and JNS.

With ‘Night Watcher,’ JNS kicks things off with deep, moody, and melancholic acid tones, followed by Sojeso’s early-morning rave vibes with ‘Casino,’ which serves as a prelude to the rest of the album’s tracks. On ‘Space Garden,’ Radiofear introduces a pulsating acid bassline wrapped around a tricky breakbeat, setting the stage for Closet Yi’s escalation of tempo and intensity on ‘Unnamed Lagoon.’ The track is followed by a pulsating acid bassline wrapped around a tricky breakbeat. The rest of the compilation is built around enthralling basslines and a diverse range of drum patterns and formats, which continue to be developed.

A testament to the unwavering desire of Seoul’s underground talent to return to their rightful abodes on the city’s dance floors, the 10-track release is available for purchase on Bandcamp. Hopefully, this will be accomplished soon.
