Samsara Beats drop ’Eternal Darkness of the Halftime Beats’ VA


After the success of the previous compilation series comprised of 4 releases (‘Syncopation’, ‘Oscillation’, ‘Detonation’ and ‘Isolation‘, which are all available free to download via Samsara Beats‘ Bandcamp page,) they’re excited to present a new series of Various Artists. This time every VA will focus on a specific genre or subgenre of what we call Bass Music. The title of the first release, ’Eternal Darkness of the Halftime Beats’ reveals itself as the sonic direction they want to go in, without the need for additional information. As usual, their VA welcomes a heterogeneous mix of well-known names in the game as well as newcomers.

Paige Julia is a creature that lives on an island in the South Pacific Ocean that spends her time tinkering with sound machines. Whilst a well-known force in Aotearoa’s underground bass music scene for some time, Paige Julia is now being embraced by the global music community as one of the very profound artists emanating from Aotearoa. She has released music with Drum&BassArena (UK), Unchained Recordings (HK), Samsara Beats (US), MalLabel Music (US), Forest Biz (UK), Uncomfortable Beats (AU) and Totally Roasted (NZ) as well as a self-released album titled ‘Morphling’ that won “Best Electronic Artist” at the 2021 Aotearoa Music Awards.

Today we premiere Paige Julia’s contribution to the album ‘Swish’ which you can check out below. The ’Eternal Darkness of the Halftime Beats’ VA drops today (Friday 2nd September) and is available for you to get your hands on from here!
