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.
