These days, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Mike Paradinas listens exclusively to footwork.
It’s what his label Planet Mu has become best known for of late, and the boss himself has dabbled in the sound with a remix for Ital Tek’s recent Gonga EP. His sterling series of footwork mixes, featuring offcuts and highlights from the process of compiling the Bangs & Works compilations, are also well worth checking out.
Planet Mu have never been about just one sound, though. In the past couple of years they’ve done a fine line in washy bedroom hypnagogia, releasing albums from Tropics, Kuedo and most recently Boxcutter’s new alias The Host, and it’s this side of its sound that Paradinas has chosen to showcase in his latest mix for Self-Titled.
Label tracks – including a strong showing from The Host’s self-titled album – are accompanied by contributions from Konx-om-Pax, Polysick, James Ferraro’s Bebetune$ alias and more – perfect, as the title suggests, for a late night internet binge. Check out the mix below.
