It’s not often you get the privilege of witnessing an artists journey first hand, but in the case of Latmun we’re proud to say we’ve been lucky enough to watch our friend’s rise to success first hand. A friend and former resident of About To Blow, through his dynamic, distinctive productions and complex sets of deep and groove-fuelled tech house, Joe Bradley has been racking up some seriously impressive achievements in what’s been a real landmark year for the producer thus far.
First announcing himself as a resident at Nottingham’s clubbing institution, Stealth, Latmun’s career has quickly progressed following the success of ‘Def’ in 2016. Since then, releases on Relief, Lost Records, Material and most recently Repopulate Mars have seen a succession of number 1 releases, with the likes of Marco Carola, The Martinez Brothers and Jamie Jones regularly spinning his tunes, and resulting in him being crowned the best selling tech-house producer on Beatport for a three month stint this year (and fifth overall for the last 12 months).
Away from the studio and in the booth, his peerless ability to take hold of a dancefloor has resulted in his schedule being as busy as any – both internationally and throughout the UK – with a continuous stream of quality gigs and an ever-growing fanbase who have witnessed his skill for weaving through hypnotic styles of tech house in a way that only Latmun can.
Having toured the US, Argentina, Brazil, Australia and just about all of Europe already this year, there’s no signs of letting up, with the producer making his Fabric debut in September and having been announced as a resident for the forthcoming Warehouse Project season. What’s more – having started 2017 with a stint in Mexico that saw him play no less than 3 parties at The BPM Festival – the producer has been confirmed for the festivals first ever European edition as the party takes over the Algarve region of Portugal in 1 months time.
Ahead of what’s set to be an impressive four days and nights of parties across Portimao and Lagoa, Latmun has laid down an exclusive set for the festival’s reputable mix series which we have the pleasure of premiering! As utterly absorbing as it is eclectic, ranging from house and techno to progressive and minimal, it is a 66-minute journey through Latmun’s favorite records of the moment, and one that possesses the kind of signature groove for which Bradley has risen to such acclaim.
