M. Vaughn would be the king of Wesleyan’s 2-Step/deep house scene, if only it existed. Michael Vaughn ‘16, who producers under M. Vaughn, has gone from posting about Electric Zoo on WesAdmits to producing deep house tracks that are perhaps too subtle and sensitive to be given a chance amidst the tank topped hedonism that takes place on Randall’s Island every September. That is a great compliment, I think. M. Vaughn's new Nafe EP and “FADERD MIX [for Aural Wes]” showcase the “yung” producer’s keen ear for infectious melodies and hooks. Both the EP and mix exhibit Vaughn’s harkening back to groundbreaking house and garage producers like MK and Todd Edwards in his production. Deep house and 2-step have re-entered the underground club zeitgeist in recent years, and M. Vaughn is prepared to set himself apart from the trends with some snark and weirdness strikingly absent from most club CDJs. Just look for him “waiting at your local drop,” begging you to join him in a more thoughtful sphere of ignorance.
