Big Beat Records Highlights Dance Music from Around the World

Big Beat Records is a label that has set the current industry standard in the electronic music space. As a purveyor of some of the biggest household names in dance, the label has announced the release of the second edition of their “Ignition” compilation.

The series highlights an expertly curated selection of electronic and dance music from around the world to bring attention to the global community that has come together around the music’s culture. From late night bedroom listening to legendary club nights to the festival stages that draw crowds larger than some entire cities, Big Beat Ignition showcases this world while celebrating and highlighting some of our favorite music creators, from the up-and-coming to the established.

All 10 tracks on the compilation are previously unreleased and spotlights Paris’ burgeoning scene through an extended visual that follows a group of spirited youths as they take on the city from day to night. Produced and directed by New York based trio Stephanie Varela, Derec Dunn and Katia Spivakova who wanted to “capture some of the Parisian essence: seductive, magic and timeless.” Over email the three told us “there was no plot other than ‘this is us, here, tonight’.”
