Mixpak FM 074 comes from the Netherlands born, New Zealand raised, and Melbourne resident Air Max ’97, whose debut EP Progress & Memory came out on Liminal Sounds earlier this year. His EP title certainly rings true in his sound – self-describing his music as “oblique club trax”, Air Max ’97 joins an impressive group of young, boundary-pushing producers who were reared on and inspired by post-09 London sounds & visuals. With his recent work including a remix of Kuduro producer Nidia Minaj’s ’Tarraxo LHE Da’, he has follow-up EPs in the works for both Liminal Sounds and London’s Trax Couture as well as his bi-monthly Melbourne club night, Club Esc.
His Mixpak FM takes us on a percussive and often dark ride through Chicago drill, Ballroom, Techno, and of course his own productions.
