Mixpak FM 089 comes from Uruguayan producer & DJ, Lechuga Zafiro. His productions and remixes aren't far off from the description provided by one of his tracks, 'tambores mutantes' - industrial and percussive, with a strong ground in latin american sounds. It's no surprise, then, that he's a NAAFI affiliate, with tracks on their Pirata compilation. He's recently launched his own label out of Montevideo, named Salviatek, which seeks to release music that "reminisces candombe drumming while bringing it into a club context".
His Mixpak FM shows the scope of his influence - from afrobeats instrumentals to demos from London producers, baile funk to kuduro.

Mixpak FM 088 comes from NY-based producer, DJ and painter, Lil Jabba. Though known predominantly for his affiliation with Teklife and his explorations in footwork, Jabba is a versatile producer with an impressive back catalogue, including a full length album on Local Action, and a second now in sight.
His Mixpak FM brings forth the sounds and influences from his latest EP, Keep, that broadly takes its cues from rap, grime and jungle. A near cinematic experience - in places beatless, in places frenetic - it melds his own material with tarraxo, grime, Young Thug and Aphex Twin.
