A Running Melody 009 - Evan Michael

Up next, an old mate from the neighborhood here in Brooklyn, Mr. Evan Michael.  Evan's been a close friend for years and has been heavily involved in the music scene here in NYC, from Cameo Gallery (RIP) & Brooklyn Bass, to more recently his releases on the likes of Cascine and the newly launched Kaviar Disco Club imprint (check it out here!).  His productions are inspired by everything from disco, to techno, to house and boogie, so we asked him to throw together a mix for the series to see what he came up with.  

Some words (and a mix) from the man himself...

A big part of my production work flow centers around searching high and low for breaks, especially ones residing in Funk and Boogie LPs of the late 70s and early 80s. For this mixtape, I wanted to showcase a variety of what I'm usually listening to in second hand record stores, on youtube, and in the studio. Some of these songs I discovered a long time ago, others more recently. I'm also inspired by producers who've edited these elements and come out with something a bit more Techno in the process. There's a lot of organic bits in these sampling gems, like airy claps and reverb'd vocals and I enjoy all of it. I hope you do too.
