Mixpak FM
Mixpak is a Brooklyn based record label founded by Dre Skull. Mixpak FM delivers forward thinking mixes from DJs around the world. Catch the vibe.

Mixpak 019 is brought to you by Venezuelan producer and DJ, Pacheko. First catching our eye last year with his remix of Max Romeo for Senseless Records, Pacheko has been producing a string of bass-heavy records and remixes, from Kuduro to Venezuela's hottest genre: Changa Tuki. He also heads up Abstractorrecords, that houses the likes of Cardopusher, Nehuen, Pocz and more. In Pacheko's own words:

I wanted to do something good for heaphone listening but also to get people moving. It goes from 120bpm to 150 in less than an hour, and features some of the music I am feeling at the moment: Some new House from Omar S & Theo Parrish, some oldschool Acid House (Chilly T), and a lot of music from producers related to the Abstractor (my crew / blog / label) people such as: Nehuen (from Argentina), Cardopusher, Dj Yirvin, MPeach, Pocz (all from Venezuela) and myself. It's an original, new ¨Tropical Bass¨ sound that we are pushing together and I feel its growing and evolving nicely! So I then went the guarachero way for a good part of the mix, but only with tracks that I really really like such as Bok Bok's ¨Dance Report¨, an L-Vis 1990 remix and some Erick Rincón & Sheeqo Beat tracks. For the final part of the mix I took the Kuduro way and could´ve stayed there longer but the mix has to end at some point right? Anyways its a mix I really enjoyed recording, did it with Serato, 2 Technics 1200 and a mixer, it was lots of fun!. Hope you like it!

The first in our Carnival special for Mixpak FM, Mixpak 017 is brought to you by San Francisco's DJ Theory. Aside from contributing to NYC's excellent Large Up blog, Theory is also a stellar producer, creating a whole host of originals and remixes, from the Moombahsoul tracks included on David Heartbreak's compilation, to 'Quick Money feat. Jahdan Blakkamoore', that beautifully keeps intact the sentiments of its sample: Amadou & Mariam's 'Sabali'. Of course, Theory is also a banging DJ, and here he dips through dancehall, moombahton, funky, ending up on a high-energy soca tip.

Mixpak 016 is brought to you by mixtape maestro, Chrissy Murderbot. The Chicago-based DJ and producer is fresh from releasing his debut album on Planet Mu, Women's Studies, that runs through juke, booty and bashment, and features vocals from some Mixpak favourites, Rubi Dan, MC Zulu and Warrior Queen. Aside from creating 160bpm madness, Murderbot also runs Loose Squares and Sleazetone, and is also possibly the only person in the world with the knowledge, taste and DJ skills to put out a mixtape in a different genre every week for a whole year. His live sets are even more hyperactive than his mixtapes, so he recorded us an exclusive live set at Hump last month. It's packed full of unreleased material and remixes. Get your comfiest shoes on for this one. You can subscribe to Mixpak FM via iTunes, subscribe with an RSS reader from the Mixpak FM site or download this mix directly.
