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 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.
