#12 'Vanguard' by Truly-Madly


We've been impressed by Michael's mixes for quite some time and are very proud to present some of his best work to date as DR guest mix 12. Loads of new and older gems in this mix.

In his own words: "It was only after I finished recording this mix that I realised the places it visits. Starting out in Detroit, passing through Belgium, France, Germany, Spain & Chicago (amongst others) and ending up in New York - a (relatively) global experience. Deep house rhythms from as early as 1988 mixed with sublime contemporary newcomers, these tracks were chosen for their individual character and probably reflect where I'm now at quite well. It will be interesting to see what people make of it."

DJ profile

Location: London, UK
| Soundcloud

After moving to London in the early 90s, truly-madly played regularly at venues such as Ministry Of Sound, Leisure Lounge and Bar Rhumba, alongside the likes of Luke Solomon, DJ Harvey, LuvDup, Terry Farley and Marshall Jefferson. During the mid 90s, promoters would constantly try to encourage playing harder and faster, whereas his style was always naturally deeper and slower. truly's unwillingness to compromise his style resulted in him taking more of a back seat with regards to DJing at the larger, more commercial club nights. Far from his interest in music waning, this encouraged him to seek out the more obscure and deeper sound he loved so much, and play at smaller, more intimate gatherings.
