King Britt will relaunch collab label The Buddy System
Legendary Philadelphia electronic artist, DJ and producer King Britt is known for his various artistic efforts around town, but the local visionary’s latest endeavor is actually an older project. Back in 2014, Britt started a record label called The Buddy System, which released monthly collaborative EPs — the twist being that the collaborators remained anonymous. Their names were revealed with each following release, surrounding the project with an air of mystery and anticipation.
The label put out five releases that year, but has been dormant ever since. Until now, that is. This summer, King Britt will revive the label, continuing the series with the release of its 6th and 7th installments. This time, though, we know the artists’ identities in advance — two of King Britt’s own aliases, Firefly and Dynamic, are back in use. One track from each is out now; listen below.
The two new EPs will be released June 29. All previous releases are available on The Buddy System’s Bandcamp page, and preorders for the first two releases can be found here and here. Read The Key’s recent feature on King Britt here.
