The weekend has landed and all that matters now is clubs, drugs, pubs and parties. You've got 48 hours off the 9-5, it's time to unbutton your hustle and breathe vigor back into life. Whether it be through losing your soul on the dance floor or grooving to it, we have your soundtrack covered. The EARMILK Weekend Selector, an exclusive guest mix series where we invite the latest budding talent from behind the booth to usher you through all the boozie and jam. From your morning bedside to tonight's evening social, your weekend selector is here to fill a void in good taste and allow fresh connections to flow vicariously.
The man at the helm of this week's selector series has been one of the most consistent producers in techno over the past few years. His solo work as well as his collaborations with frequent studio partner Zhao and as one half of Clouded Vision have found their way into numerous posts over at Earmilk as well as our year end top 100 compilation. Alongside his original works, Matt has helmed remixes for the likes of Jori Hulkkonen, Popof and Murphy Jax.
The mix comes to us as Walsh gears up for his fifth year as a resident at Bugged Out Weekender. The festival takes place January 20-22 and features a who's who from all our favorite scenes. From an Inner City reunion show to Joy O to Ivan Smagghe to 2ManyDJs there's something for everyone.
A bubbling melting pot of brooding techno, some highlights in the mix include Philipp Gorbachev's "In The Delta", Walsh and Zhao's remix for Monoblok & PussySelektor and "Black Mountie" off the forthcoming Jokers Of The Scene JOT5 EP. For those of us in North America who don't get a chance to see Matt Walsh play out often if at all the mix is a testament to the fact that DJ's with the taste to become renowned selectors translate into producers with an ear for quality.
