SUK068 | Mount Mike – Tapelines

14th December 2018

After the success of Mike’s debut release on Suckmusic – Headlights – which peaked at #5 on Beatport’s overall releases chart and hit #2 on the Deep House releases chart, we’re delighted to present his follow up track – Tapelines. This number sees the Melbourne producer take a step further in developing his own sonic voice and has been exciting dance floors around Melbourne for the past few months. Electronic Groove

“I’d been listening to a lot of Paul Ursin’s catalogue and really wanted to create something with a bit more grit and slap than my previous tracks. I started experimenting with some kooky samples and field recordings as I like to try and create the feeling of a physical place or space with my music but it wasn’t until I read a Jon Hopkins interview about the making of his new album that I had the inspiration to finish the track. The interview talked about crafting different sounds in a way that they evolve and meld together to the point where you can’t tell where one sound begins and the next sound ends so I set out to try and achieve something similar with the breakdown of this track” – Mount Mike
