As yet another season of summer rooftop Sessions at the Standard Hotel in Los Angeles nears its zenith, Culprit will again dedicate an 8-track collection of carefully selected music to its celebrated party series…
‘Above the City 2’ continues on last year’s predecessor LA-centric rooftop theme and its mission to spotlight some of the finest young and emerging global talent around. No mere party soundtrack, this compilation intends to capture the feel and the essence of the label’s sound in its many guises, from the deepest to most dancefloor-moving.

‘Above the City 2’ is an expression of the close relationship between the label, its physical environment and the worldwide, ever-expanding clique of producers inspired by Culprit’s modus operandi. While eclectic in its mix of tempos and moods, the compilation remains a precise reflection of the label’s philosophy, true to its focus on the finest in modern house and deep electronic music.
Like its predecessor, ‘Above the City 2’ is sequenced to resemble a natural flow of Culprit’s rooftop parties, from sun-soaked and leisurely to post-sunset and four-on-the-floor.
