On the occasion of the huge Sonotown’s party this Friday, February 27th 2015, dedicated to cult web radio Intergalactic FM – Ice FM has already hosted guest mixes by its closest active members Ian Martin, Intergalactic Gary, Kid Machine, Iron blu – , here is a brand new DJ session by one of our most precious colleagues: Mick Wills again!
Yes, it’s a nice habit! Every year now, Mick rewards us with one of his terrific sets recorded live – this unpublished yet was made for a new year party, first day of January, in Dublin, just setting the right tone for 2015 – and it’s always with an irrepressible excitement that we discover his material once he sends it, and that we share it with you!
What shall we say this time? Well, we guess Mick’s music talks to bodies first. And to our darkness. What kind of adjectives shall we use without writing the usual superlatives? This is just pure Mick for more than one hour: deep dark pure electro-techno we like more than all the rest, with still clever winks at former decades, for the sparkling and magic on dancefloors, these several styles gathered in a very unique epic ascent, a dramatic narrative construction which is now his trademark: muscled, skilled and subtle, vigorous and powerful. Something to do with German romantic personality? Who knows…
Just come to meet the Man when he comes in your city, as it happens more and more often, as today! And follow his Soundcloud, always updated with new works!

On the occasion of his exceptional booking for the Rendez-Vous party at the Batofar in Paris, November, the 16th, dedicated to Roman label Minimal Rome, famous for relentless electro-techno remixes, german producer – and « cult » DJ – Mick Wills, formerly emblematic of Gigolo Records team, gives us an exclusive mix! Mick remained unconditionally attached to old-school and uncompromising works: always marvelous with musical diversity, combining the best of 30 years of dance music, passing blithely from unknown hits to underground classics from Chicago, Detroit, Italo-disco, Hi-NRG, Acid House. We are very glad to share with you this live set made by our henceforth regular Ice FM colleague!
