Washington, D.C. house duo Protect-U, aka Mike Petillo and Aaron Leitko, just released their fourth EP, The Protect-U EP on UK label Vibrations, and to celebrate they put together a vinyl mix for Spinner, recorded live, with some serious jams.
"A bunch of it is stuff I've recently found while digging, there is the mellow jam from our recent Planet Mu record on there, and the latest single Max D did on Future Times, which is the label I do along with Max (aka Andrew)," Petillo tells us.
"I can't always play the latest unreleased material from the crew as I don't have a CDJ, only two decks. Of course there are some essential personal classics in the mix as well. Aaron and I are big fans of the Günter Schickert LP ever since he snagged a copy a bunch of years back when his friend's dad was getting rid of his collection -- he had some really nice cuts obviously!"
