Mumdance launches online archive with over 316 hours of music – News

Mumdance has released 316 hours of mixes, productions and other digital work on their website – mumdance.com.

In a statement on Instagram, the critically acclaimed producer, real name Jack Adams, also shared some candid insights into his battle with addiction and his role in his three-year hiatus.

“As I complete my third year clean and sober, I wanted to share an archive of my work over the past 14 years,” he wrote. “Over the past 12 months, I slowly started remembering what I loved about music.

I don’t really have any expectations for what’s next, but I’m grateful to have the beginning of a healthier relationship with listening and creating.”

The mix archive contains sets from Riko Dan, Lady Starlight, DJ Die and DJ Storm, as well as radio sessions, live mixes and podcasts.

Adams’ last original music was released in 2018 via Local Action and STOOR, and the archive follows him through a period of inactivity. Her journey with addiction is detailed in a statement that accompanies the new website.

He also wrote: “If you’re struggling with an addiction, taking the first step towards recovery is important, but I’m sure you won’t regret it. There’s plenty of help out there. It’s free and nothing to feel ashamed of.”

Since starting the Mumdance Archive in 2008, Adams has released music on labels including Tectonic and Keysound, co-founded the Different Circles label with Logos, and collaborated with musicians like Pinch and Novelist, as well as Speedy J.
