Well, it's mid-month, so you know what that means: another edition of the fine Grown Folk Collection series.

Grown Folk, once again, is the collaborative project between Drew Kim and Brendan Neil, two promising young producers/DJs out of Montreal. Since we started covering them four months ago, Grown Folk have gained a lot of attention in the world of house music. They have upcoming releases on Templar Sound & Truancy Records, and has received a lot of praise from such tastemakers as Teki Latex, LOL Boys, the boys of Club Cheval, Chaos in the CBD and many others.

Their monthly mix series is always frighteningly on-point in terms of mixing and song selection, and this month's edition is probably my favorite one so far. It's nice when you see a mix that features so many of the tunes that you've been bumping for the past month, and yet still manages to impress you with the mixing and the careful addition of a few upcoming releases and exclusives. Grown Folk has their finger on the pulse of modern house music, and a confident hold on what the future has to offer. The lines between garage, two-step, house, r&b and dubstep are getting blurred every single day, and Grown Folk is part of the new guard that'll take that one step further. Genres are becoming irrelevant, it is all about the feeling and the vibes.

Enough chatter though, please just enjoy the refined & sexy baby makin' vibes provided to you by Montreal's dapper dons. This is Grown Folk music. Get familiar.
