Mike Shannon in The Lab LDN

The Lab LDN is Mixmag and Coors Light's weekly live stream, powered by Void Acoustics, where we showcase the finest DJs direct from our world famous office party.

This week we welcome Mike Shannon onto the decks to immerse us in hour of deep techno and rapid-fire mixing.

The Canadian artist stands out among his country’s finest dance music talents, playing lauded sets across the globe, releasing albums through labels such as Plus 8 and Force Inc., and curating and contributing to the renowned imprints he founded, Cynosure and Haunt. Across his varied career he’s never shied away from experimentation, traversing multiple production styles, even moving to Chile for a time to work in the sphere of downtempo sounds.

He’s also involved in Blue Fields, a collaborative group with guitar player Takeshi Nishimoto and vocalist Fadila, which sees the trio combine to create otherworldly sounds. Prepare to be blown away when their second album lands on January 29. This will be followed by the 'Cynosure Focal Point V' compilation in late February, which features collaborations with Mathew Jonson, Dewalta, Vilod and more. Two projects that highlight Shannon’s extensive musical range.

Tune into his Lab appearance to kick your Friday night into action. This week's live stream starts at 5pm GMT. You can tune in live over on our Facebook page and re-watch on MixmagTV from 6pm GMT.

You can catch Mike Shannon at Half Baked's 7th birthday this Saturday. He'll play alongside the likes of: Arpiar Soundsystem, Margaret Degas and loads more for what's set to be one of the biggest parties in London this year. Tickets ands more info here
