DJ mix: m50

The mysterious Chicago producer goes deep.

We've said it before and we'll say it again: We're awaiting the day when we'll all be identifiable by code, just like in THX 1138. Won't that be fun? But Kimochi Sound's m50, who also goes by the equally mysterious name Area, just went ahead and did it—props! (Actually, we're guessing that the producer chose the name in homage to Korg M50 Synth Workstation.) At any rate, m50 will be back at Cielo's Deep Space party to play his deeper-than-deep sound alongside Franois K on Monday 19 (as Area, he has music out on Mr. K's Wave label), and he was kind enough to give us this exclusive mix as a taster. It's a spiraling slice of house, techno and acid, with a few left-field twists and turns—yes, that is a diminutive, purple-clad funkateer you hear at around the 40-minute mark—to release the tension. Enjoy!
