Congi Nine Sessions
Nine Sessions is the new EP from Nottingham duo Congi, their first outing on Mimm following releases on Chord Marauders. Their first hip-hop album, it blends their previous dub influenced style with a classic sampling approach to beat-making. Created as a concept piece, this project includes a 32 page comic designed by Ink Soup: the music and art depicting a day-in-the-life narrative of the protagonist, a heist character. The end result is a fully rounded sound, fusing rugged sample cuts with warm drums and textural chords.

From China With Love
The release has been curated by Mimm Collective member Mos Isley, originally from China he has brought together a EP featuring a host of his homegrown musical compadres.
Launching on 14th of Feb (Valentines Day) with the aim is to show a different perspective of Chinese culture.
After a refurbishment, lick of paint and a re-opening it’s time for Mimm to have a stretch, limber up and round up where they are musically. Their first compilation for over two years shows the journey deeper into the world of electronic soul music, slowed down tempos and doped-out beatsmiths which they have taken.
Mimm have drawn from their talented international collective with fresh dubplates from the likes of in-house producers Congi, Philippe Edison, Metske, Saulya, Warren Xclnce, Mos Isley, Pete Beardsworth, H725, Bruises and Melo Zed. As well as having a few select cuts from internationally acclaimed producers who have graced their events over the past years from Lone (R&S), Om Unit (Cosmic Bridge), Quest (Deep Medi), Flako, Submerse (Project Mooncircle) and Kaelin Ellis (Florida).
It’s an eclectic and brave offering with a general sound that leans heavily on ambient and psychedelic hip hop and house, drenched in warm analogue colours, nostalgic samples and soulful melodies, all the while with a keen awareness of more subtle classical compositions. Throughout there’s a distinct flavour of smoked whiskey-bar jazz riffs grounded in a gritty UK, bass-heavy setting and as musical round-ups go, for Mimm, this is definitely a coming of age compilation.
