One of the most sadly overlooked labels in the world is Japan’s Mule Musiq, for while DJ Sprinkles (a.k.a. Terre Thaemlitz) records almost exclusively for the label, many of its other artists are only known to tried-and-true techno and house fans. With the label’s May release schedule, though, there’s no reason to not dig Mule’s vibes, because it spans some of the deepest of deep house. Beginning with the latest single from Berlin’s Ekkohaus and then pairing the latest from Force of Nature’s KZA with Soulphiction‘s remixes of Henrik Schwarz and Kuniyuki‘s “Once Again,” Mule is taking a deep plunge into heady beats. Watch out for these releases, as there’s no excuse to sleep on them now!
