August 25, 2008

Magic Monday is the debut full-length from producer Adrian Michna, aka Michna. Having co-founded Miami’s legendary Secret Frequency Crew, Michna’s been mixing instrumental hip-hop and experimental electronic music for years, collaborating with Diplo and Brazilian group Bonde do Role and landing on URB’s “Next 100” list in the process. Magic Monday is Michna’s coming-out party: a work of dazzling instrumental skill, detailed production savvy, and ass-shaking sophistication.
