'James Broughton: The Music Of His Dance (Vol. 2)' released June 17 on Friends With Benefits Record
Seven artists contribute dance songs inspired by the award-winning documentary ‘Big Joy: The Adventures of James Broughton’
San Francisco, CA - JUNE 17, 2014 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELASE - San Francisco-based dance label Friends With Benefits Records today releases James Broughton: The Music Of His Dance (Vol. 2). The compilation is presented in conjunction with the award winning documentary film Big Joy: The Adventures of James Broughton.
Seven dance music artists—including Heartthrob (Isnisnt, Minus), Hard Ton (Killekill House Trax, Toy Tonics) and Lady Blacktronika (Sound Black Recordings)—created new, original songs that incorporate archival audio of James Broughton reading his poetry. By bringing Broughton’s poetry from the page to the dance floor, this unique compilation carries the message of Big Joy to an entirely new audience.
Friends With Benefits Records, based in San Francisco, was founded in 2013 by David Sternesky, Mat dos Santos, and Trevor Sigler, and specializes in independent dance music and promoting the work of innovative electronic musicians, with a special focus on queer-identified talent.
