BKLYN1834, a Victorian mansion based in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn that houses seven musicians, artists, producers, photographers, and creators, is announcing the release of their first compilation album entitled, Compilation_01 on November 13th. Compiled of seven songs, the compilation ranges from indie pop to electronic to folk, with artists Saint Ballantine, Sanctuary Sound, NΔTIONS, ATR777, Bobby Only, and Foe Destroyer.
They are also releasing the first single, which features Saint Ballantine, which is compiled of Sene from the duo denetia and sene, (both former residents of 1834 who met while living as roommates) and the creative director of 1834, Andrew Thomas Reid. "Enough" and described it as a "low-key track that smoothly mixes soulful voices, electronic synths, primal drums, and crucial guitar chords until it reaches an even blend."
The “Clubhouse” as it’s often referred to, is based on the salon-like atmosphere of Hitsville U.S.A. in Detroit and Gertrude Stein’s home in Paris, where artists and creatives could live together in a nurturing, co-op style situation, bouncing ideas off each other and collaborating one another. The house is self-contained as it houses a video/photographer and someone who creates their merch.
The purpose of the house is to provide a space for these artist to live, write, record, and document with each other. They have housed over 50 artists since its inception.
Previous and current BKLYN1834 residents have worked with Prince, Taylor Swift, Toby Keith, Snarky Puppy, Theophilus London, Freddie Gibbs, Pharaohe Monch, among others and have worked directly with Converse, the iconic New York Times building, Pepsi, Apple, and more. Compilation_01 is the first in a series of EP's 1834 plans to release.
