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.

- Cultural appropriation is an uneasy topic in architecture, but a new generation of young design practitioners is ready to change the paradigm. Louis Mokak, director of Indigenous Architecture and Design Victoria (IADV), questions Australia's colonial heritage - both in thought and practice
- Tomoko and Takaaki Shiratori have lived all over Japan; from a 'New Town' in Yokohama, to Aichi Prefecture and now in Nerima, Tokyo. Their shared love of gardening means the rooftop is filled with fruits and vegetables, while Tomoko has a passion for reading aloud and talking, which she says, keeps her energised!
- Jurien Bay and Wedge Island in Western Australia were landscapes once dominated by informal settlements. However, suburban developments are now reaching WA's central coast. Felix Joensson, from our West Coast partners Future West, asks the question – how do we create beachfront suburbs with soul?
