One of my favorite House Music cassettes (yes, I said cassettes) was Chicago DJ Miles Maeda's "Painting." I bought it in 2001, even though it was recorded in 1997 and I fell in love. I couldn't find anymore of his music, and 6 years later, that cassette wore away. I guess playing it all the time and leaving it in a hot car in Georgia didn't help.
Well, while I was sick last month, I went trolling and found Miles Maeda Mixes.com. There Miles had all of his past and current mixes, including "Painting." Miles is currently based in Tokyo, Japan. As far as I can tell from his Facebook, he's ok, but there is a link on his Facebook and his website to donate to relief efforts in Japan, so please consider it.
So I'm featuring Side 1 this month and Side 2 soon. Enjoy!
