Get Wild With A Minimix From Armand Van Helden

Jack for days.

December 18, 2014

UK dance institution Ministry of Sound's come correct in recent years with their ongoing Masterpiece series, turning out incredible multi-CD comps from the likes of Goldie, Carl Craig, and Andrew Weatherall. This time around, it's Armand Van Helden's turn, and the NYC house vet's prepped a 3-CD set for the series, each disc possessing its own distinct theme:The Loft—Boston, Yacht Rock Don't Stop, and Freestyle Forever. The thing drops February 15; to give us mere mortals a peek, AVH's prepped a 15-minute minimix previewing content from all three discs that you can check out below.

"I'm semi-retired now. This is the only genre of music that doesn't allow you leave, it's like the Mafia!" Van Helden told FADER in an email. "So accepting a commission from Ministry to compile a Masterpiece was a no-brainer. It's a good way to do something entirely different. Why not make a compilation to show where I traversed in life? I don't think anyone knows about my freestyle history! It's a walk through time."
