DRM035: Chris Mitchell

Chris Mitchell, Tampa Bay Techno tactician and Vanguard Sound label owner drops the 35th installment in the Deeply Rooted Mixtape series - - which features exclusive mixes by both local and international DJs and producers.

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.

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!

Chris Mitchell x Techno x Vanguard Sound!

Chris Mitchell is a name most people probably don't know - - but should. The Tampa producer is making heat that would kill the elderly.

Chris Mitchell is a name that has been mentioned - - albeit briefly - - a couplke of times here at The Deep North, both times for his musical project with Lady Blacktronika called the Ikenga Project.  Chris is no stranger to the deeper side of electronic music, and in fact, after catching a few of his youtube videos and recent tracks from his Vanuard Sound (002) release, both Max and I were captivated by the quality of terrific techno music this guy is putting out.  We especially love the tune Phrenetic! and the cool video it comes along with.  Check it out below, along with a couple of the other tracks on his first solo EP - - released on his own imprint, which he co-owns with Amir Alexander.  Great stuff Chris.

Some of Chris Mitchell's music can be bought on Juno records.  Vanguard Sound (002) should be available shortly.

Everyone Loves Good, Free Shit

A very exciting offer here from my good friend Akua Grant, better known by her stage name Lady Blacktronika.  The first lady of beatdown threw me a hot little link a couple of weeks back for a new project she is working on with Chris Mitchell called The Ikenga Project.

The EP is being offered in conjunction with Lady B's label Sound Kemystry, and it includes three tracks titled Stress, For Real and Passion and Fortune.  I am stoked on this EP, especially on the track Stress, which has a very nostalgic feel to it, perhaps because it reminds me of something that Ratatat would produce -- a band which I listened to a lot back in the summer of 2007.  I am also really feeling Passion and Fortune, a song with tons of muffled excitement in the background and tasty vocal cuts which leave me thinking of the sexy ex-girlfriends I have lost in the past.

Take the EP for a test run, and if you are feeling it, go to Lady Black's soundcloud or scroll down to download the entire EP as a .zip file.
