Guest Mix: MAD MATS (Local Talk, Sweden)


Ahhh yes! We’ve been waiting on this one for a while now. We bugged our good friend MAD MATS from Sweden for a few months to try and squeeze an exclusive guest mix out of him. It finally landed in the inbox today!

The description “a DJ’s DJ” fits perfectly with Mad Mats who is one of the best out there from a technical standpoint but also a true wizard of the eclectic / freestyle school of DJ-ing. If that wasn’t enough, he stands behind some of our favorite labels from the past few years such as Local Talk (which he runs with co-founder Tooli), Basic Fingers, G.A.M.M and the now defunct (but very influential) Raw Fusion.

We gave Mats an absolute carte blanche for his mix and he ran with it, 75 minutes of vibes filled with left and right turns. Quite a trip!
