In FADER #77’s story Four on the Floor, we looked at a quartet of electronic and dance labels based in the states that are truly finding their own renewed themes. Though disco, house and techno all have origins on our shores, lately much of that music's growth has occurred overseas. Future Times, Software, 100% Silk and Fade to Mind are shaping the sound to the beat of their own drums. You can read stories on each label's history and future here and, every day this week, you can download a mix from each label featuring tracks exclusively from their artists. Today's is from Fade to Mind, a mostly LA-based conglomerate dedicated to teamwork, Ciara and music experiences that fuck your brain up. It was mixed by label founder Ezra Rubin bka Kingdom.
