The man behind what is possibly the electronic music world’s biggest supporter of the footwork scene, UK label Planet Mu, is also responsible for the latest FACT mix, which is chock full of the sound he so tirelessly champions. Mike Paradinas’ DJ set is a monster mix that features 38 (!) tunes from both the elite and the up-and-coming figures of one of Chicago’s signature musical exports—including DJ Roc, DJ Rashad, Tha Pope, DJ Diamond, and DJ Earl—along with an assortment of artists influenced by the genre’s skittering rhythms and off-kilter production style. You can get more info on the Planet Mu owner’s podcast here, and stream/download it below.
