Soulquest LAB #9 - An interview with Made in M

For this 9th episode of the Soulquest Lab, we interviewed Berlin based producer Made in M. Alongside producers like Juan Rios, FloFilz, Swum and others, he helped define a sound that later became iconic; Sweet pleasing chords and harmonies, crisp and laidback drums, hypnotic, yet voluntarily slightly dissonant sounds.
