Back in February, Mark Farina brought his signature brand of Chicago house and acid jazz to the MID nightclub, where he performed the eighth installment of his widely famous Mushroom Jazz compilation in celebration of the series’ 25th anniversary. The hour and a half set featured an incredibly diverse range of genres, centered around a laid back and soulful backbone of jazz and hip hop rhythms accompanied, of course, by Farina’s own unique vocals and samples.
Now, several months later, Farina’s unforgettable MID set has resurfaced as part of the new line of Mushroom Jazz themed merchandise, currently up for preorder on his Pledge Music page. Along with the purchase of a signed MJ8 poster, signed MJ8 Test Pressing or signed CD/Vinyl Bundle, fans will receive exclusive access to a free download of his live recorded set.
The compilation and merchandise is set to release on July 22, 2016. Until then, you can visit the above hyperlink to get a preview of the wonderful live set at the MID.
Once the compilation is released, the set will also be uploaded to Farina’s Soundcloud page for all to enjoy. Check out the complete track list and the limited edition items here.
