Knife Mix 008 : Main Phase
Words by: Henrik Petersen
We are lucky to have some talented people working behind the scenes at Knife Mag. One of them is Adam Emil, who apart from DJ'ing across Europe in the last few years, has gained quite some traction with his new project, Main Phase.
Having previously released Lo-Fi House tracks as one part of the duo, Slim Hustla, Adam Emil explains Main Phase as a project returning to the roots of UK club genres with influences stretching across 2-Step, UK Garage and Jungle.
The mix represents the sounds that Adam Emil would play at clubs today, if the situation was different, almost exclusively consisting of his own productions and tracks from friends that move within the darker realms of UK club music and a special tribute to now deceased american rapper Pop Smoke.
With several releases already out in 2020 including a 12" release on Warehouse Rave, a dubplate on EC2A and a forthcoming 12" on Time Is Now (Shall Not Fade), Adam Emil has kicked in the door this year and continues to remain heavily active. Check out his mix above and visit Main Phase's SoundCloud for more of his own productions and releases.
