Damian Lazarus Recommends

Set to release the new Rebel Rave 2 compilation, the label honcho of Crosstown Rebels picks out his favourite things around the world for Dazed

After eight years of running cult eclectic electronic label Crosstown Rebels - musical wizard and head honcho, Damian Lazarus is set to release a new compilation to come as the second instalment of 'Rebel Rave'. Making a return with three discs of the most recent gems from their prolific catalogue, the new release features their main men (and woman) Jamie Jones, Glimpse, Deniz Kurtel, and Lazarus himself, as well as newcomers Russ Yallop, Subb-an, Maceo Plex and Art Department.

Originally created in 2008 as a prolific film series featuring some of the best loved artists on the underground dance music circuit around the globe, Rebel Rave has become a beacon of house and techno to reach a wider audience. Here Lazarus teaches us about his secret drink, the 'Lazarus Mk2' and gives us some music tips...
