Musical Missionary has played various roles in fostering Miami's underground dance music scene in recent years, from artist bookings and party promotions, to philanthropy through the "Dance for a Cause" parties in 2009 and the more recent "Sunday School for the Generous" DJ marathon at Electric Pickle on Januray 17, which raised $2,000 for Haitian relief. With a genuine love for underground music and a mission to champion some of the choicest EDM artists around, like Justin and Christian Martin, Bill Patrick, Catz 'N' Dogz, Maetrik, and Chris Fortier, it should only follow naturally that MM take on the role of record label as well.
The new MM label's debut release on Janurary 26 is an EP titled MM01: Between The Streets by Darren DuVall, a relatively unknown but fairly promising producer based out of Dallas, TX. With four tracks that cruise the gamut between loungey Balearic downtempo, deep sexy tech house, and breaks, this record offers a rich palette of sounds and is quite an auspicious debut release for MM. The EP will be available in digital format on iTunes, Amazon, Juno, Stompy and Traxsource on Tuesday, January 26, so be sure to get your copy of this phenomenal record and support our local music!
