Mumdance's Shared Meanings out today as free download

32 exclusive tracks make it on to Jack Adams's sixth major project in six years

Mumdance aka Jack Adams has released a major mix project featuring 32 exclusive tracks selected with the idea of a 'shared dance floor experience' in mind, ones that, we're told, transcend both location and language to unite people. The project is an extension of the ideas and inspirations he took from his Radio Mumdance project, that over the course of 40 shows had Adams DJ with Nina Kraviz, DJ Stingray, DJ Storm, Surgeon, Ben UFO, Josey Rebelle and others.

Among those on the release you'll find SØS Gunver Ryberg, Space Afrika, Caterina Barbieri, Chevel, Szare, JK Flesh, Abyss X, Sleeparchive, Peder Mannerfelt, Nkisi, D Carbon, and ZULI. Also included is Mumdance & Logos’s “Teachers”, a riff on the Daft Punk classic that pays tribute to musicians before them.

Shared Meanings is out today as a free digital download. Individual track download, a cassette edition, and a vinyl release (featuring five of the tracks) is released on 23 November.
