COVERED: Miles Davis vs. DJ Big Styles

Miles Davis is very much the epitome of cool, so when he recorded ‘Round About Midnight for Columbia Records (his debut for the label), he must’ve considered it a step-up to “the big boys” although by looking at the cover, it may appear that he’s taking an in-studio snooze. Or maybe he told producer George Avakian “hey George, play that back again, I want to make sure I got everything in there.” The end result was a soon-to-be-classic album, and the start of an incredible relationship between Davis and Columbia.

Los Angeles’ DJ Big Styles put together his half hour mix called First Monday Mix No. 2 and when it came to cover inspiration, it seemed quite obvious. He has done a few classic album cover homages before, and this one represents the music in his new mix quite well. It is a free download from Soundcloud but if you’d like to look at the track listing first, click here. To hear more of his mixes, head to his full Soundcloud page
