Mike Mago – What A Love (Original Mix)
It’s not everyday that a house track hits the UK top ten, but Mike Mago’s recent saunter courtesy of “Outlines” represented everything you needed to know about the Dutchman’s extended prospects for 2015. Having maintained his own BMKLTCH imprint’s stellar output alongside all this chart accession, Mago returns to his own label this month with evidence that a truly seasoned house wizard can tame both extremes of the industry coin. The radio-facing assets of “Outlines” are replaced with a more fundamental tip to the deep and durable getup that first spotlighted Mago as a diamond in the rough. Under his own roof, straight shuffles and muted bass movements pave the way for a straight up club record with soulful undertones. If you doubted one could have their cake and eat it within the modern industry climate, “What A Love” shows that you’re never too commercially advanced to take house music back to the basics.
