mixpak fm air max 97

 

Mixpak FM 074 comes from the Netherlands born, New Zealand raised, and Melbourne resident Air Max '97, whose debut EP Progress & Memory came out on Liminal Sounds earlier this year. His EP title certainly rings true in his sound - self-describing his music as "oblique club trax", Air Max '97 joins an impressive group of young, boundary-pushing producers who were reared on and inspired by post-09 London sounds & visuals. With his recent work including a remix of Kuduro producer Nidia Minaj's 'Tarraxo LHE Da', he has follow-up EPs in the works for both Liminal Sounds and London's Trax Couture as well as his bi-monthly Melbourne club night, Club Esc.

His Mixpak FM takes us on a percussive and often dark ride through Chicago drill, Ballroom, Techno, and of course his own productions.

Mixpak FM - ynfynyt

Mixpak FM 073 comes from Dallas producer & DJ, Ynfynyt Scroll. Along with the collective, Track Meet, that runs as a label & club night, YS has been throwing parties around Texas and the US, exposing the deep south club scene to new sounds. Like many of Mixpak FM's previous contributors, Ynfynyt scroll draws heavily from the worldwide club scene, melding the sounds of Baltimore club, dembow, cumbia, grime and kuduro. He has previously released EPs with #Feelings, a label run by fellow Texan Ben Aqua, as well as contributions to the Track Meet compilation and his latest solo effort, a 7 track offering for Summer 2014.

 

His Mixpak FM is a global dance sampler that leaves you pining for a sweaty Bushwick basement to let go in: expect tracks from his latest EP, as well as gifts from Portugal, Mexico, the Netherlands and a Katy Perry baile funk edit.

mixpak fm - gage

Mixpak FM 072 comes from UK producer & DJ, Gage. It's been less than a year since he let his first track, and a war dub at that, into the world. With only one official follow up, the rough and driving grime-inspired 12" 'Telo / Shiftin' on Bristol's Crazy Legs label, his output so far has been small but standout, restrained but revered in his scene. A London native but now living in Bristol, it's no surprise that his sound is at home in the recent club heritage of both cities: dark, heavily percussive and stripped back.

For those eager to hear his newest, his Mixpak FM is full of his own, brand new material, the first offerings since 'Telo', as well as an unheard collab track with Feadz, a new track from Bloom and an exlcusive from Crazy Legs' latest signing, ISLAND.

Mixpak FM - Paul Marmota Mixpak FM 071 comes from Chilean producer and DJ, Paul Marmota. Associated with the Mexican label and clubnight, NAAFI, who are responsible for bringing US club acts like Nguzunguzu and Total Freedom south of the border, Paul Marmota's sound keeps its Latin roots firm while drawing influence from global club music. As well as doing production for Chilean rap group Zonora Point, his 'Nueva' EP struck a resonance for Mixpak, bringing in tinges of dembow, dancehall, grime, rap and not to mention that US underground vibe.

His Mixpak FM is a ride through sounds from Mexico to London, flying through new instrumental grime producers from the UK (and previous Mixpak FM-ers), as well as US underground artists Massacooramaan and Ynfynt Scroll and of course his Central / South American contemporaries.

Mixpak FM - Slick Shoota Mixpak FM 070 comes from Norwegian DJ and producer, Slick Shoota. A serious internet digger and lover of club music, he's known for his dancefloor driven productions that often swing in at 160bpm and nod strongly to the Chicago underground. A resident DJ at Oslo's 'Ball Em Up' night, Slick Shoota knows what works in the club regardless of genre, and his EPs, DJ tools and remixes always reflect that. His latest EP, Keep Bussin, is full of driving beats, heavy syncopation and remixes from Addison Groove & Om Unit.

His Mixpak FM is a super energetic rave ride through Juke, Kuduro, bits of Jungle, flecks of grime and even a track from fellow Scandinavian, Yung Lean.

Mixpak FM: Sugur Shane Mixpak FM 069 comes from Philly producer, DJ & performer, Sugur Shane. Affiliated with NY's Qweenbeat, Shane moves easily from the ballroom to the studio, always keeping the club in focus. After releasing his successful 'My Night with Peter & Junior' mixtape, (inspired by notorious NY club DJs Peter Rauhofer and Junior Vasquez), his latest productions come in the form of a collab with Mixpak fam Krueger.

His Mixpak FM is of course an upfront club tape, where dancefloor-driven remixes of rap sit side by side with the NY underground sound. Cunty!

Mixpak FM: DJ Tricks

 Mixpak FM 068 comes from Jersey DJ & producer, DJ Tricks. Along with Mike Gip, DJ Rell & DJ Kiff, Tricks makes up part of the 220 crew, who are constantly flipping and reworking rap, pop and RnB tracks Jersey style. With signature chopped samples, tough kicks and a healthy amount of bed squeak, Tricks' tracks are made with the club in mind, while always tripping up expectations and playing with convention.

His Mixpak FM feels like a night in a Brick city club, running first through some of the biggest rap songs of the moment, before ramping up into his own remixes, as well as 220 offerings.

Mixpak FM: Neana

Mixpak FM 067 comes from UK producer and DJ, Neana. Introducing himself with his Rebound X & Dizzee re-edits around a year ago, Neana has little in the way of official releases yet, but has already established a solid & accomplished sound. Playing with the association between the UK-US club spectrum, Neana manages to harness the rawness of London while channeling the energy and boldness of the East Coast US, from Baltimore Club to Ballroom. With his own label, Gang Fatale, and a growing affiliation with Night Slugs, Neana's heavily percussive sound looks set to go official this year.

His Mixpak FM is a ride through that club energy, keeping things upfront while referential and always connecting the dots between underground raves.

Mixpak FM: Mr. Mitch

Mixpak FM 066 is brought to you by London producer & DJ, Mr. Mitch. Despite having produced tracks for the likes of Skepta, Trim and Riko Dan, it's the instrumental in-and-of-itself where Mr. Mitch finds his true home, as we saw on his offering for the first Mixpak Pressure compilation. Known for tracks that reach to the outer limits of grime experimentation and weirdness, Mr. Mitch's output ranges from the playful Peace edits of The Beach Boys or Pharrell (while everyone else was bringing the war dubs), to the more ambient sounds, like 'The Man Waits'. As well as being a resident at the ever-growing instrumental grime night Boxed, Mitch also heads Gobstopper Records, releasing tracks from Strict Face, Bloom and Moony.

His Mixpak FM runs through tracks from young UK producers Inkke, Murlo and JD Reid, as well as revered electronic producers Actress and Clark, not to mention his own edits.

Mixpak FM Finn

 

Mixpak FM 065 comes from UK producer, Finn. Emerging only a few months ago and making his way on to our radar via Slackk's mixes, Finn's sound comes in the great tradition and renewed vibrance of grime-meets-RnB-samples (see Spooky, Inkke, Milktray for more). With skipping rhythms that play with space & movement, Finn's cut-up beats look to 90s icons like Ginuwine & Missy to complete that head-turning UK sound. With a contribution to the first Boxed compilation out and a forthcoming 12" on Local Action, it's already a certified formula.

His Mixpak FM is a journey through some of the most exciting sounds of this corner of the underground. Never afraid to dip into pop reworks as easily as the obscurer sounds of London, Finn puts his own work next to Mixpak favorites Murlo, Kingdom and DJ Q.
