Liminal Space mix by Millú
After a successful first iteration in October, we’re tapping our heels in anticipation of the second instalment of our live EARS series at MPavilion, where we bring our online mixtape series to life under the roof of the Bijoy Jain-designed bamboo pavilion in Melbourne’s Queen Victoria Gardens. It’s happening as part of our Assemble Papers x MPavilion weekend – which will see a night of music and dancing, a writing workshop for urban enthusiasts, and a kid-friendly building workshop for the budding city-makers among us. On Friday 16 December, we’ve invited two sheer legends to provide the sundown soundtrack: Melbourne-via-California musician Chela and Melbourne DJ Millú.
Just as likely to be soundtracking your yum cha is she is to be rousing dancefloors all over Melbourne, Millú’s deep cache of obscure jams, esoteric rhythms and club cuts forego conventional genre standards. Millú has graced the likes of Triple R, and has made appearances at the likes of Meredith Music Festival, Wax’o Paradiso, Club D’érange, Lost Weekend and Daydreams. Frequent stints abroad see her record bag constantly evolving as she seeks out and brings home her unique interpretations of music from around the world.
We asked Millú to share a mix to get us in the mood – she sent back this genre-hopping selection of skilfully selected tracks. Listen to Millú’s Liminal Space mix below, and get a taste of what’s to come in a few Fridays’ time.
