Closing out this years summer for Maximum Heat is our bud Ben, aka GMGN. This Boston heavy hitter is no stranger to the Nu-Disco & House scene. GMGN has released tracks via Mozzarella Recordings, PitchBend Recordings, and Stardust Records. GMGN’s new track “The One After Two” was just recently featured on Midnight Riot Recordings for their Volume 5 compilation that just dropped. Read on to and find out what GMNG is currently jamming out to. GMGN laid down this proper funky-disco house, drenched with nu disco, and deep vibes mix for Maximum Heat 003 — Enjoy!
Hi I’m Ben, I produce and DJ under the name GMGN (Good Morning Good Night). I grew up in England, but now live in Boston USA. I’ve had a live long love affair with electronic music, especially house, nu-disco/disco-house.
Where do you shop for and discover new music?
Soundcloud has become an invaluable tool for discovering new music (As most artists now use it to share music) and I really enjoy the act of searching and listening to new stuff. I usually try to spend at least a few hours a week searching – I find it very inspiring to hear what other artists are making (regardless of genre). Beatport/Juno are my stores of choice. I also really enjoy buying old disco records – I miss the physical aspect of buying and touching music.
