Living in Burlington, VT I am only about two hours away from the historic city of Montreal, Quebec. If you have never been to Montreal it is a beautiful French-Canadian city nestled in the heart of Quebec that has much to offer in all expressions of art. The short two hour drive from Burlington to Montreal gives way to quite an impressive culture change, from the rugged American green mountains to a timeless city captured in age old european culture. The deep commitment to european and specifically the unique quebecois tradition gives way to a brilliant nexus of artists from every medium, especially music where there is a heavy emphasis on forward thinking genres relative to their neighbors to the South.
With every trip across the boarder I am able to bring back a little something new to share with my friends and our readers. This summer I was able to catch a show at the famed Beach Club in Pointe Calumet, about 30 minutes North of the city. While I was there I was able to catch a day time set from Montreal’s very own Mike Larry, you can read my review here. With such an outstanding response from the music I had posted from Mike’s set at Beach Club we asked him if he could put a little something together for us, and being the enthusiastic and talented DJ/Producer that he is, whipped us up a brilliant live set from his performance at one of Dark Room Productions events in Old Port Montreal.
Mike Larry is a local powerhouse of music in Montreal. He has played amongst some of the worlds greatest and has stood stage at some of the most prestigious DJ booths in the Western Hemisphere including the infamous club ((Stereo)). The mix he has delivered us is about an hour in length is wonderful collage of house music and its many sub-genres. Steady and bouncy from start to finish the transitions are professional and seamless, use of layered vocal samples and minimal builds keeps you engaged and nodding your head for its entirety. So without further delay please enjoy Mike Larry’s exclusive mix for MMIBTY, and please show this guy some love, he deserves it.
