Mixpak FM is back with German duo So Shifty! The production/remix team from Hamburg blasted their way onto the scene in 09, with their huge remix of The Very Best’s ‘Warm Heart of Africa’. Before long, they were sought after remixers and their own productions, like the dancehall-tinged club banger ‘Wine’ (featuring vocals from Ward 21’s Kunley), set dancefloors alight. They have created some top crossover tunes, and their productions skip comfortably across house, cumbia, dancehall and tropical. They’ve also collaborated with some of the past year’s biggest breakthroughs (like Natalie Storm and Douster) and have undoubtedly produced the very best Busy Signal remixes.
Before you ask, we don’t know what the German bits are saying but it’s probably something nice like ‘We’re So Shifty, welcome to our amazing mix’.

Mixpak FM is back with Chicago’s legendary DJ Nehpets who describes this as a “history mix” and without a doubt it’s an amazing journey back through classic disco, house, funk and more. While you might know Nehpets from his Juke tracks , you might not know that his first vinyl release dropped on Dance Mania when he was just 15 years old. Insider's tip: on that release he was billed as “the backwards named Dee Jay Nehpets,” now try reading Nehpets backwards...okay, so we're all up to speed? Back to the mix, there’s no tracklist at the moment, but anyone who wants to go for it in the comments will be praised and thanked. Take a 58 minute trip back...
