This week iTunes is featuring 2 great records, one from Michna who is currently based in Brooklyn NY, Adrian Michna (aka DJ Egg Foo Young) has become a staple in the NYC club scene, known for his chameleon like abilities. Outside of the club, he has been able to pursue a few hobbies such as building furniture, bicycles, photography, skeeball, and gloss lustre collages. While working on his solo album, he also found time to remix the mysterious Jandek (the only artist ever to do so) and produce on Brazilian group Bonde Do Role’s debut LP for Domino/Mad Decent.
Milosh just released a follow up LP last week, its getting alot of love everywhere, its a great step forward from his previous work, the production has added tons of depth and his voice just works so well with everything he does.
When i DJ out this Michna track i usually play this My Morning Jacket song after, it reminds me of Radiohead or Midlake i think its the rim hits and the way the song swells and fills up then releases.
As for this Marumari track, i wanna share more old melodic IDM that has a lot of crossover potential, IDM can be such a focused genre of music that takes forward thinking steps on composition, i just don’t want it to ever die off and Marumari was a classic example of of focus track, the song revolves around a repetitive hook that keeps morphing and all this detail gets unveiled thru out the song.

Michna – Do What You Want To Do


Milosh – Another Day


My Morning Jacket – It Beats For You


Marumari – Way In The Middle Of The Air

I’m glad you put Milosh up there. Been following him for years, and you’re right, his new LP is a great step forward.

There parts of the Milosh song, like around 2:20, that kind of remind me of a string rendition his vocal layering in the live video of You Make Me Feel.

I’ve heard such awesome things about MMJ, but I never heard anything that really blew me away from them… but wow that song is awesome, it does remind me of Radiohead. Such strong performance coming from each band member.
