First Listen: Adriatique Kicks Off New Culprit Compilation

Culprit—the label known for their badass rooftop series at the Standard Hotel in downtown Los Angeles—is rounding out 2013 by releasing the third installment of ‘Above the City,’ due out November 18. The popular compilation series consists of curated rooftop-inspired grooving joints.

To kick off the Culprit comp proper, we’ve got an exclusive premiere of Adriatique’s “Modern Talking.” Known as the imprint’s “Swiss wonders” Adriatique captures the spirit of deep, danceable riffs with the tune that pairs perfectly with balmy nights, and you needn’t be bombed to enjoy it. To each his own, like the stoner the Cali Bear says.

Listen to the premiere below.
