After stumbling across Good Guy Mikesh and making an edit of his track ‘Freddy’ - Maceo Plex delved deeper into the back catalogue and decided he was bona fide Ellum material… One demo request later and the ‘From Another World EP’ was born. A trio of original tracks, one of which features production partner Filburt, it’s dark, beautiful and warm music for cold winter nights. A-side and Maceo Plex edit of ‘A Place Of Love feat. Filburt’ is a disco-laced chugger with deep bass and epic strings, ‘On Patrol’ is a slow building languorous affair with flickering machine fuzz while ‘Holy Day’ brings some big drums into play with a ghostly soundbed of chimes and FX.
Good Guy Mikesh is a DJ and live artist from Leipzig, Germany who is often found collaborating with fellow German producer Filburt. Fusing lush, disco-laced house with an accessible heartbeat, the artist has appeared on prestigious labels such as Permanent Vacation, Mirau and Liebe*Detail. ‘From Another World EP’ is his first solo works in 4 years.
Good Guy Mikesh is also co-founder of the label Riotvan and frontman of the band Here Is Why. They released their debut album ‘HRSY’ in 2012 and did a collaborative EP with Adam Port (Keinemusik/Berlin) in May 2013. This summer Mikesh presented his first solo live show at the legendary German club Robert Johnson.
Also part of the duo Good Guy Mikesh & FILBURT, the pair have recently remixed The Blaxploited Orchestra on Compost as well as ‘Private Drive’ by Few Nolder and Kris Menace feat. Robert Owens. Original productions came in 2012 on Permanent Vacation and Riotvan. Filburt is also a solo producer in his own right and releases music under the alias Smooth Pilots. Both artists intend to concentrate on solo productions for the coming year.
