The 35th FACT podcast comes crafted by Matthew Styles. His mix for FACT is rather special – eschewing the streamlinedhouse sound he’s most commonly associated with, Styles has insteadopted to deliver what is, in his own words, "a kind of a proto-houseselection, ’83 hottmixx style". It’s a masterclass in rare disco, boogie and 4×4 entirely culled from the late 70s and early 80s – by the likes of Willie Hutch, A Certain Ratio and Captain Rapp. And at its centre is perhaps one of FACT’s favourite tracks of all time: Arthur Russell’s impossibly beautiful and sprawling ‘In The Light of TheMiracle’.
This is one of the best mixes we’ve yet had the pleasure of hosting, so dig in and enjoy. Tracklisting below.
