Boomkat Product Review:
Mickey J Blood coming in your earholes! Paralleling his ongoing NTS radio series, the mysterious producer cues up an hour of previously unreleased jams cutting across the radio dial between myriad styles on the first in a series.
Lest we forget, Michael J. Blood began life as a production showcase put together in 2019 by Tom Boogizm on NTS, with the show later issued on tape by Finn’s 2 B Real. ‘Blood FM#1’ now takes MJB to the fantasy airwaves with an hour long sequence of signature loopy, tracky jamz interspersed with radio chatter, static noise and soul samples dialling into different channels on yr analogue radio.
It’s a classic concept nailed perfectly, running stacks of previously unreleased technosoul bangers, gristly downbeats, strung out edits and proper concrète sampler audities with an attention deficit style that highlights the breadth of his spectrum. It’s certain to snag fans of everyone from the Electrifying Mojo and Ken Collier, to Gescom’s Disengage shows and Stu Allen on KissFM, thru Actress, Madteo, or Demdike Stare mixtapes - the best shit.
