Midland at it again

Midland should rename himself to Highland cos he is definately up there with the best DJ’s and dance producers around at the moment (sorry bad pun but it is Monday so work with me on this one).

Stumbled across another quality mix of his – a housey treat for all you lovers of things deep.  He starts early on in the mix with a cracking remix of the Bees, before cracking it up a notch beatwise.  Genius.  And the final track choice from Stubborn Heart to close the mix out is a perfect end to a great little selection.  Both can be checked out individually below along with some other highlihghts if you want a taster before downloading.

So come on (Tom*), get on the download and enjoy.

*Tom is the only one who reads my blog.  So I may as well refer to you in person mate.  ;o)

Beastie Boys Back

So it didn’t take long did it.  Me getting lazy and not posting things.  What can I say…I’ve been busy and had better things to do with my time than write a blog no one reads anyway.  But sometimes circumstances mean even my laziness needs kicking to the kerb in disgust.
And the launch of the Beastie Boys new album, Hot Sauce Committte Pt2, is just such a reason for this metaphorical kicking.

Whilst I like the Beasties I’ve never been a die hard fan.  I could take or leave a lot of their stuff.  But this album is something different.  The production of the beats is quality, and compliments the distinctive sound and flow of the B-Boys.  For example Multilateral Nuclear Disarmament (my favourite on the album) is so dope that even Cheech & Chong would have trouble smoking it!  Heavy deep stuff and one to turn up loud.

And the whole thing is being streamed by the guys themselves.  So do your ears a favour and click play

Sometimes its so good you just gotta share…….

Soulection

Bah.  The end of winter is clinging on for all its worth.  Its grey.  Its wet.  Its dull.

So cheer yourselves up with some nice musical freeness.  Soulection (as you might guess from the name) is selection of future soul and lazy wonk.

All wrapped up in a nice free download. Its the musical equivalent of finding a tenner on the street.  So don’t stroll past this – bend down quickly, pick it up sharpish and continue on your way, happy in the knowledge you just got something for nothing.

Check the player below for the taster mix or just take my word for it and click the download link (you really should start to trust me by now).  With  contributions from peeps such as Dibiase, B.Lewis, GETEYE, and Take (amongst others) it contains some of the finest names around.  These are the guys that have restored my faith in music so have a listen and find out why.

Midland works his magic: FACT

Do yourself a favour and download this mix (here).

Its by a brilliant new producer called Midland.  I don’t know a huge amount about this guy as he’s fairly new on the scene, but watch this space – he’s gonna be huge.

He’s already had a couple of great tracks out worth checking out (youtube is your friend).

This mix essentially a house music mix but that just doesn’t do it justice.  Its so much more than JUST a house mix.

Its one of those rare musical blends that seems to pull you along without even realising it – starting off smoothly and gently and ending up with you dancing round the bedroom in your socks shouting out the occasional ‘woop woop’

And its been on high rotation at Muzza HQ for the last few weeks.

Grab it while you can.
