FOMP present Under Pressure Records is a compilation showcasing one of the best up and coming Afro house labels coming in out of SA. We thought it was our duty to help introduce the world to some if it's fine young artists. When UPR head honcho Soul Varti asked us if we were interested in distributing his label we jumped at the chance. Knowing the quality of artists he has under his stable from his first release with us 'Ritrals of Africa' we were more than happy to help him push his sounds and musically ideas. In this compilation we aim to show case a selection of talent from the UPR camp 13 tracks ranging from the deep tribal rhythms to bouncy 4 to the floor grooves this complation will have dance floors all over the world moving to the UPR beat.
"To cut a long story short, what we have here is a seminal compilation showcasing up and rising South African label Under Pressure Records and the artists under its wings. The twelve featured tracks from the likes of Rider Five02, Budda Sage, EleRoots, K-Maroo, King Wave, Kul-Chad Soul, Soul Varti, Lazy-Les, Mizz, Mthi Wa Afrika and ZolaEmoBoys take you on a breathtaking truly exhilarating journey through deepest South African house music territory, letting you explore the many different flavors the motherland has to offer."
