    It's only February and we've already got another mix for you. This time we've got an exclusive straight from the Headz camp, Mikal who steps in the for an hour long mix showcasing all of his latest works, including his brand new long awaited album which is out now on Metalheadz. Kick back and turn it up....

    It’s still early doors for 2016, but there are already a few LPs looming large that are primed to set a couple of fires in the hearts and mind of drum fiends everywhere. The first to step up and set the bar is Mikal’s Wilderness LP, coming out on Metalheadz in February.

    For those that haven’t been paying attention (shame on you), Mikal’s had quite the career and is fast approaching the distinction of being a veteran with a decade on the scene and a healthy stable of releases on a slew of labels like: SGN:LTD, Big Bud’s Sountrax, Mako’s Utopia Music, the sadly now-defunct Pristine Recordings and, of course, Headz. Mikal’s style as a producer is definitely right down the deep end, eschewing robotic 2-step rollers in favour of raw, break-laden tunes that assault and delight the senses in equal measure.
    In honour of the release of the Wilderness LP, we’ve picked out and broken 5 choice cuts from the 16 track album for your reading pleasure and had a quick catch up with the man himself: Mikael Willett, although you can just call him Mikal.

    So, Mikael, thanks for taking the time to talk to us. First up, I was wondering how this LP came about? Is it a project you’ve been working on for a while, or is it something that just happened naturally over time?
