In Session: Mr Mitch

Slick, soulful club sounds

His last LP, ‘Parallel Memories’ was a pragmatic release. Synth-packed and skeletal, it's a careful demonstration of the capabilities of club-not-club electronic experiments and one that moves well into newer projects.

With the forthcoming ‘Devout’, out April 21, appearing to tread into more palatable 'pop' territory than 'Parallel Memories' and other previous offerings, it’s a highly personal project, discussing Mitchell's role as a father figure and emotional prospects of love, family and loyalty. This thoughtfulness is overwhelmingly apparent in both the instrumentals and the vocals, with features from P Money, Duval Timothy, Denai Moore, Palmistry and Py.

Coming in at just over an hour, his In Session mix is an introverted take on contemporary bass with a step back into the old school crooning’s of r‘n’b, with all the usual slickness and soul he's known for. Melodic vocals, emotionally-charged hooks and blissfully sweet spaces, it’s a selection made for the dancefloor and the headphone listener alike. Exploding abruptly at points with bursts of otherworldly drums, dubstep and dark raucous noise before reverting back to his more signature sound, it's an immersive display of reserved energy and experience. Trust us, this is not one to be slept on.
