Danilo Plessow – aka Motor City Drum Ensemble – is easily one of the most interesting voices to emerge in contemporary house music over the last few years.
A series of killer singles between 2007 and 2009 – particularly the ‘Raw Cuts’ series, released on his own MCDE imprint – quickly propelled Plessow into a fabled position in the house landscape.
But he shines equally as a selector, as his contribution to the DJ Kicks series back in 2011 amply showed. As such, FACT are pretty chuffed to present a 1 hour 45 minute mix from the man himself, which you can download below.
The mix was recorded live at the SunceBeat 3 festival which took place in Tisno, Croatia late last month, and saw Plessow rubbing shoulders with the likes of Francois K and DJ Harvey in the sun.
Talking about the mix, the producer said said: “Suncebeat was a really nice experience, the beach stage, the people and of course the setting at the sea were all part of the magic. Now I’m looking forward to Secretsundaze, the line-up is sick and I’m sure its going to be a great party.”
Plessow is referring to this weekend’s Secretsundaze Go Bang! mini-festival, at which he will play alongside Matthew Herbert, Four Tet, Levon Vincent and more. The festival takes place at the Roundhouse and Proud Camden this Sunday, August 26; further info and tickets can be found here.
