Another post on Tampa Bay producer and character-to-watch Chris Mitchell, who, along with Amir Alexander owns and operates the vinyl-pressing label Vanguard Sound! We are currently waiting on a vinyl promo from this hot little label, which should be here any minute now. Chris Mitchell is a man on a mission, a brilliant artist with releases on Plan B Recordings that we have featured on the page a couple of times for his work in both the realms of Techno and Deep House. If you haven't heard his work before, make sure you read our previous articles on his music by clicking here and here and here. The links will give you a taste of his solo work as well as his productions with Lady Blacktronika as the duo known as the Ikenga Project - - which we might add, have a new EP coming out on Lady B's label Sound Kemystry. You can taste this upcoming release below, and then put in your pre-order here.
Ikenga Project - Snow EP >>> [Pre-order it]
While on the topic of Ikenga, we would like to throw out some love to our friend Lady Blacktronika and congratulate her on her recent landmark experience in Berlin, where she played at the world famous Panorama Bar. You can listen to her set by clicking the following link to her soundcloud. She has come a long way in her DJ'ing skills since we first had her play a Deep North event last year before she played the Pride weekend here in Toronto.

Back to Mr. Mitchell though... here is his fantastic DRM035 mixtape for the Deep North's long-running mix series, which has seen a number of incredible mixes from both local and international DJs and producers. Make sure you follow Chris on Soundcloud and browse the Vanguard Sound Website for more music and mixes by Chris and his homies Amir Alexander, Hakim Murphy, Dakini9, DJ Spider and more! Thanks for the mix Chris, and keep cranking out those big bad daddies!
