We are blessed with a mix from the legend that is Maurice Fulton. In this set, even though a very “New York” sound permeates it, Maurice shows
the depth of influences that he is interested in and how long he has been around. Currently based in Sheffield, we can hear some of the steel town in this set, mixing Boogie and Disco with some more leftfield electronic music. The perfect soundtrack for the NYC Downlow.
Maurice cut his teeth as a hip-hop DJ, danced somewhere in the background of a scene in Hairspray, programmed drums and played keyboards on above ground house hits by Crystal Waters and Ultra Nate, and started a stockpile of production pseudonyms — including Boof, Eddie & the Eggs, Sticky People, and Syclops — that likely numbers north of 20. His best-known work will forever remain within Crystal Waters‘ “Gypsy Woman,” but the early 2000s saw him achieve a different kind of notoriety as the non-shrieking half of Mu, a collaborative affair with his wife, Mutsumi Kanamori. Mu‘s Afro Finger and Gel (2003) and Out of Breach (Manchester’s Revenge) (2005) are two gleaming (or glaring) examples of left-field house at its least predicable and most terroristic.Find more mixes like this from Maurice on here
