Podcast 38: Ghostly Swim Michna Megamix
- Words: Bryant Rutledge
Ann Arbor's Ghostly International imprint and cult TV network Adult Swim recently teamed up to release Ghostly Swim, a free, digital compilation showcasing the label's musically diverse catalog. As an added treat to XLR8R readers, they laced us with this mix from New York-based DJ and producer Adrian "Egg Foo Young" Michna, who gathered a select number of tracks from the compilation for his Ghostly Swim Michna Megamix.
Michna's multi-genre influences are well-documented, and his abilities as a DJ shine on this mix, where he lays avant pop next to ambient compositions, transitions from 4/4 numbers into abstract hip-hop, and proves, in just over 30 minutes, that there's more than one way to fill a dancefloor. This mix is available exclusively through XLR8R.com for one week only, so get downloading and throw this on at your next house party.
