FACT mix 225 comes from one of underground house music’s most serious emerging talents: Tevo Howard.
We say “emerging”, but Howard has been spinning records since 1987, when he’d barely hit puberty. Growing up in Chicago at that time, it was perhaps inevitable that he’d catch the house bug; but his interest in music went beyond that, and he would later study music and bass guitar at college (this would be the first of several degrees in different subjects embarked upon by the academically gifted, but eternally restless, artist).
For today's FACT mix, our man has handed us a rollicking mix of cask-matured house classics, recorded live in Jerusalem earlier this month. You need only look at the (in places a little sketchy) tracklist below to know what pleasures await you: this is the warm, wild and authentic sound of Chicago, and it feels more vital than ever.
