Future Classic: Owiny Sigoma Band “Power Punch” (Brownswood Recordings)

Usually when I say that a record or a song is “interesting”, it’s a polite way of saying it’s not really my thing or doesn’t inspire any sort of overly positive or negative reaction. But when it comes to the Owiny Sigoma Band, for once I really mean it!! When …

Future Classic: DJ Koze “Amygdala” (Pampa Records)

When it comes to house and techno, I like to think I’m a pretty strict guy. Most of the dance tracks that come out these days are mind-numbingly boring and predictable to me (not to mention excessively filtered and over-produced). I’ll almost always favour sounds that are “raw and gritty” …

Future Classic: Levon Vincent “Specks Jam”

This was one of the very last cuts that got left out of our last MIMS Show but I kind of regret it now. Let’s be honest though, this track will probably find its way on one our mixes at some point as it is indeed a “future classic“. You regular …

Future Classic: Bakey Ustl “A Tender Place / Nose Candy”

The first time I heard A Tender Place, I was just waiting for the change up to happen, or for something to break in the song and the more I waited, the more avant-garde the song became. I didn’t know what to expect next, if the track would pick up …
