MDC 2020 Review
Landing back on terra firma after the 2020 whirlwind, our annual review winds its way back through a whole range of chillout moods and energised atmospherics that flowed through the home stereo over the year, with a big focus on some of great new Aussie electronica that kept us feeling zen throughout some rather interesting times.
Hope you’ve all been enjoying the vibes from us, plenty more of those to come.
Big love, MDC.

MDC.258 Alex Kassian
As the year winds to long overdue a halt, we called on local Berlin DJ, Love On The Rocks favourite and all round class act @alexkassian to supply us with one of his finest blends, rewinding to the dawning age of early morning trance hypnotics and big outdoor breaks with splashes of dream house for the tired minds.
We linked up via the Internet to speak about Alex' latest musical endeavours, touching base on the @opalsunn collab and @planetsundae label he shares with likeminded studio head @hiroakioba.

Never afraid of switching the party up a notch, Montreal's @regfant dances that fine line between all-out-fun and sentimental nostalgia, fusing fluffy late 90s-early 00s filter house with deep burners and catchy vocals from records that sound familiar but you just can't quite put your finger on it.
With a myriad of projects on the go and a killer new record just out alongside her Plush Managements Inc. partner in crime D. Tiffany, we caught up with Liv via her Montreal doggo painting studio to get the scoop!
MDC.256 Route 8

With a freshly released debut album for Lobster Theremin soundtracking the melancholic landscapes you're likely to encounter cruising through the lush Hungarian countryside, we caught up with the Budapest based producer to chat about the album, his multiple aliases, the Hungarian Italo Disco movement of the early 80s and, of course, his mix - stocked full of new music from Budapest and beyond. Cruise control > on!
MDC.255 DJ Earl Grey

Finishing the working week with a mix of truly beautiful sounds thanks to one of Australia's very best music selectors, DJ @earlgreyradio! A true purveyor of introspective cuts that can transcend the dance floor and recalibrate the mind/body/soul, Nik Thorup has to be one of the deepest diggers we've encountered, specialising in nostalgic genre benders and soothing ambient, downtempo and dubby grooves of all shapes and sizes.
For this episode we're found gently swaying between 160bpm D'n'B atmospheres and majestic moody vocal cuts, perfect to wind down or ease into your weekend with. We also caught up with Nik to chat about his label @besteffort and the imminent closing of Sydney's iconic underground music venue Freda's, where he worked both as a booker and threw parties with Rimbombo over the years.
