Though known more on this side of the pond for its label efforts, Donky Pitch actually began as a Brighton club night in the summer of 2009. Now, the Donky Pitch crew is marking its five years of existence with, well, Five, a free compilation gathering some of the label’s past highlights in addition to a number of unreleased tracks including the Lockah production featured here. On “Unrealable,” the former Bubblin’ Up artist crafts a beat heavily steeped in retro vibes, its neon-striped chords and active layers of drum-machine percussion making this one sound like a futuristic—and even a bit sinister—outtake from the Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack (not that we’re complaining at all about that fact). In addition to housing Lockah’s “Unrealable” effort, Donky Pitch’s new comp also counts tracks from The Range, Slugabed, Ghost Mutt, ARP 101, Starfoxxx, and Tokyo Hands to its name; all of which can be grabbed as a name-your-price download here. In addition, the label will be celebrating its five years with a “birthday” party in London this Saturday, the details of which can be found here.
