After the success of his come back last year on R&S RECORDS, MODEL 500 continues the epic collaboration with the label by releasing in solo a new vinyl entitled « Control / The Messenger ». At first listen, it can feel a bit weird, less ‘catchy’ or sexy than the last EP (OFI/Huesca) but this one is finally more close to the madness of early MODEL 500 releases (to not say the early electronic music for which MODEL 500 aka Mr JUAN ATKINS represents a large contribution as everyone knows). So “Control / The Messenger” is a specific & moody project where JUAN ATKINS success to drop his famous hypnotic & addictive touch. Recommended!

JOE MUGGS has produced an interesting mix comissioned by the fresh & freaky Uk label entitled UNKNOWN TO THE UNKNOWN (run by DJ HAUS). This set is a solid blend of electro bass music & Grime music, clearly not a usual jam but the result is very catchy giving a more dynamic vibe to electro (as it works always with Techno, i remind that for some electro purists who seem to have forgotten the connection) … anyway music genres are nothing, BPM is the shit! Enjoy this JOE MUGGS mix :
