Modcast #122: Fantastic Man

After reading the title, a question you may ask is just what makes this man, Melbourne producer Mic Newman, so 'fantastic'? Is it just bravado? Is there really an agreed upon concensus supporting this adjective? To answer these questions and more, we're using the 122nd Modcast as a 1 hour demonstration of why this name fits the game.

Keen to explore a different side to his talents, Melbourne producer Mic Newman launched an illusive alias, 'Fantastic Man'; which has so far seen success on Wolf Music, Join The Dots, Melbourne Deepcast and Kolour LTD, the later reaching the illustrious number 1 position on Juno's top sellers chart.

His most recent work; an upcoming EP 'It's Essential' is a debut on NYC's revered party-turned-label 'Let's Play House' (co-run by favourite Jacques Renault) and is arguably his most complete Fantastic Man collection of works to date. On the back of his recent success, Mic will embark on a 3 month tour of Europe, Brazil and the U.S where high profile dates have been penned throughout. Highlights including London's Fabric as well multiple dates in Ibiza and Berlin.
