Nathan Drew Larsen and Mazi spent several months working with a variety of artists to prepare the third volume of this compilation album and house mix, which focuses on the expressive and deep sound of Fresh Meat Records. Henry Miller wrote, “if we are always arriving and departing, it is also true that we are eternally anchored. One’s destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things.” “When Bad People Cook Good Food Volume Three” continues the eclectic deep house tradition of Fresh Meat, this time exploring connections and perspectives between the past, present and future of the Chicago based label.

Volume Three includes tracks selected from the catalog, new material and, for the first time in the series, tracks licensed from other labels. There are five new songs; “New Beginnings” by The Cushion, “Good Night from Chicago” by Local Talk artist Kindimmer, “Fire Night” by British duo Brodanse, “Ticket Movin'” by South African Terrence Pearce and “Architecture” by mysterious act Frozen Music. The album also features music by American Midwest stalwarts Derrick Carter, Chez Damier, Joshua Iz, and Alexander East. Tracks like Carter’s Club mix of “Jest 4 Me” and Joshua and Chez’ “Sentimental Love” link effortlessly with cuts created by the younger artists, weaving a tapestry between Fresh Meat’s inspirations and future paths.

Tunes licensed from third parties include Larsen’s remixes for All About and Brown Eyed Boyz. Both versions are bumping machine music workouts heavy with melody, melancholy and emotion. Audio Soul Project remixes have been licensed from Smoke City and Vizual Records. The remixes are standout examples of the elemental yet refined sound ASP has developed in recent times. For added spice, MANIK’s chunky remix of “Call of Grace” (originally by ASP) is also included on this album, previously only available on vinyl.
