It seems pointless and faintly insulting to try and condense the work of Tadd Mullinix into a few introductory paragraphs. Whether it’s as James T Cotton/JTC, Dabrye, Charles Manier or his various collaborative endeavours, the Ann Arbor-based Mullinix has quietly been schooling producers and audiences alike for almost fifteen years, with the majority of his output split between the Ghostly International/Spectral Sound axis. Despite the close affiliation to Ghostly, Mullinix also rolls deep with Nation, the Chicago-based record label overseen by Melvin ‘Traxx’ Oliphant III. Along with Traxx, D’Marc Cantu and Beau Wanzer, Mullinix has played an integral role in furthering the Jakbeat ethos that Nation channels through its every pore, and it was Nation that facilitated the arrival of Mullinix’s collection of Charles Manier material which was one of our favourite albums of last year.

Distilling the nervous, primitive music energy of bands such CHBB and Liaisons Dangereuses, and channeling it through his own lopsided production methods cultivated over an unspecified amount of time, the Charles Manier LP has the capacity to burn turntable styli, perforate eardrums, and incite more adventurous dancefloors, probably remaining a collection of music that soundtracks many memories in dark, dank spaces for years to come without getting the wider recognition it truly deserves. We love the album so much that when the opportunity arose to get a mix from Mullinix, the temptation to get a Manier podcast from him was too much to resist.

Those unfamiliar with the album should consider this resultant seventy two minute mix from Mullinix the perfect introduction to his work as Charles Manier, which pulls you through wave sounds from Severed Heads, Chris & Cosey, Mark Lane, Das Ding, Liaisons Dangereuses and more. Going forward, Mullinix look set to maintain his creative output across his many aliases, and is also on the cusp of launching his own Bopside label. These points formed part of his answers to a wedge of questions we sent his way. You can read those here: http://bit.ly/1hg35WA
