MainstreamFM London

MainstreamFM a series of irregular mixes produced by FailHDJ (Sheikh) and @pher (Phil)

With vantage points on opposite sides of the atlantic ocean, our analog and digital crates run deep and vast, with selections ranging from experimental / progressive / electronic, the many facets of contemporary hip hop, infectious blistering techno and much less.

We make sounds, rip samples, mix records and arrange accordingly. We love what we play and play what we love, with no phonies on our phonographs. Mixes are released as they are recorded, with no set schedule.

Our gamut running pastiches can serve as appropriate soundtracks for late night contemplation & plotting, watching TV with the sound off, unorthodox gardening and celestial navigation.

MS028 Akbariyya (Plain Of Assembly) by FailHDJ & @pher


"I have nothing to say. My tracks speak for me. I thought I would feel better with a little time. But it's just got worse and worse." - Phil

"Tracks driven by the recent surreal events in the U.S. but this mix equally reflects my despair at the U.K. I've always felt European, never British." - Sheikh
