mixpak fm - dj haram

Mixpak FM 095 is brought to you by Philly-based producer & DJ, DJ Haram.

Alongside the self-released "Birds of Paradise" and two cuts on a Tobago tracks compilation, she has recently signed to the Discwoman roster.

mixpak fm dj nj drone Mixpak FM 094 comes from NY based producer and DJ, DJ NJ Drone. Working on the outer edges of club music and experimental electronic music, his productions are often impressively furious and frenzied, playing with the unexpected and the mechanical, much like his name would suggest.

After releases on Bootleg Tapes and Track Meet, his latest record, Syn Stair is a full length LP for Purple Tape Pedigree. A tense and dark record, his sputtering rhythms roam genre-free but often invoke the ghosts of juke and hardcore.

In his words, his Mixpak FM "is a stream through the wild MIND CLUB river with a lot of unreleased hits and some familiar appearances!"

As promoter of one of Boston's leading underground parties, Pico Picante, resident at Remezcla's NY party Perreo, and an affiliate of Dutty Artz, she is a strong representative for transnational bass on the East Coast.

mixpak fm - copout

Mixpak FM 090 comes from NY based producer & DJ, Copout. His productions are club weapons, edging between a percussive industrial sound and strong, dark melody. With Bardo, his latest EP for UK label Liminal Sounds, Copout shows off complex 2 minute tracks that would seem as fitting on a 2015 Blade Runner soundtrack as for in the rave.

His Mixpak FM is an almost entirely instrumental journey through a dark dungeon of club music, from his forthcoming track for NY's Escape From Nature label, to tracks from all corners - gqom to grime.

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.

Lil Jabba

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.

Mixpak FM 087 comes from French-Senegalese producer & DJ, Photo Romance. Heavily inspired by the sounds of Angola and their influence in Europe, his music floats around the palettes of kuduro, kizomba, tarraxo and zouk. His latest EP, Lagoa Roxa, released on his own La Brousse record label, is a sensual, instrumental exploration of the 90bpm tarraxo genre.

mixpak fm - cuyo

Mixpak FM 086 is brought to you by New York based producer and DJ, Cuyo. Formerly known as Poolboy92, he has now reinvented as Cuyo, with forthcoming material on Jeffree's and Track Meet this summer. His tracks and sets draw heavily from South American and rave influences, while his "bio " hits straight from Buckminster Fuller's manifesto:

"Cuyo" translates to "light" in Taíno - the enlightened, indigenous people of the Caribbean and also a very special part of my family lineage. Ultimately, I have fallen in love with my connection to the Unum (the multi-verse) through my human experience as light manifested on Spaceship Earth. I have fallen in love with the potential of humanity and a conscious, peaceful coexistence within the galactic civilization. Despite the artificial boundaries that separate us - race, ethnicity, gender, nationality, etc. - we are all light/energy embodied and destined to express our unity lovingly through individuality and all of the beautiful frequencies (and contortions of) that go along with all forms of outward, non-violent expression.
This mix for you is the absolute 1st publication as Cuyo and is meant to serve as a mind guide/love song through/about our transition into the New Earthian systems of energy, education and livingry. We live on an isolated island in the middle of space and we've finally figured out how to provide the basic necessities for everyone on the planet and beyond so BAILMOS A LUZ DE LA LUNA YA hehe

mixpak fm - santa muerte

Mixpak FM 085 is brought to you by Texas-based duo Santa Muerte. Sharing a common musical leaning and a Mexican heritage, the pair - who also operate individually as Sines & Panchitron - represent a unification of many exciting elements. Named after a controversial Mexican sub-culture that reveres death, Santa Muerte often draw from traditional & contemporary Mexican themes, and thrust them into contemporary club culture. Their bootlegs and edits push Teeflii to dembow, Tinashe to experimental grime, and experimental grime back to dembow. With many boundary crossings in sight, it seems fitting they are so close to the Mexican border, not to mention being a valuable addition to a state that has recently housed underground producers such as Prince William, Dubbel Dutch, Lotic, Rabit and more.

Their Mixpak FM cruises through kuduro, rap, dembow and club productions from NY, London, Montevideo and Lisbon.

Mixpak FM - Zutzut

Mixpak FM 084 comes from Mexican producer, Zutzut. A central part of the NAAFI family, as well as head of his own label, Extasis, Zutzut's music encompasses a contemporary Mexican club experience in the age of the internet. From his rough-but-nostalgic club track 'Jala' to his Nguzunguzu x Killatonez refix, his tracks often abstract pop music into a weirder sphere, or unite different sonic worlds - from kuduro to dembow. His musical manifesto seems as progressive as his politics; tagging his first EP (El Pack 1) with "3RDWORLD" and declaring Extasis a label with 'No borders. No Gender'.

His Mixpak FM runs through NAAFI family offerings, as well as producers from around the world who are interacting and creating along similar lines: from Endgame to Venus X, Lotic to Sami Baha.

Mixpak FM - Equiknoxx

Mixpak FM 083 comes from Jamaican producers, Equiknoxx. Following in the steps of Ward 21, the duo have been responsible for some of the most innovative riddims of the last few years, from 2008's Sky Daggering, through Jim Screechie and White Label. Instantly recognizable by the bird sample, their riddims often ignore bpm convention, are ultimately playable as instrumentals, and always feature an interesting line-up of artists. Their productions and label have been home to emerging JA artists who are equally breaking the mould - from Masicka to Kabaka Pyramid.

Their Mixpak FM (mixed by Puppy Disco) is a ride through their interesting musical minds - where pop crosses into dancehall and we hear Bobby McFerrin and Enya, to original productions and tracks from their family of artists.

Mixpak FM - Endgame Mixpak FM 082 is brought to you by London based producer & DJ, Endgame. Put on our radar by his connections with Palmistry, his sound is one close to our heart - weird club music, grime, dancehall, dembow and tarraxo all make it into his live sets at Endless or his NTS show Precious Metals. His debut, self-titled release is out now on vinyl on Portugal's Golden Mist Records (and digitally this coming Monday), and features frequent collaborators Blaze Kidd and Uli-K as well as a remix from previous Mixpak FM-er Dinamarca.

His Mixpak FM is an exploration of dark, melodic and heavily rhythmic sounds running in a triangle from London to Latin America to Lisbon. It runs through many of his own productions as well as Portuguese club music, offerings from his London peers and a healthy smattering of NAAFI.

Exploring the interactions between the club underground and pop music, Kilbourne has recently delivered Jersey remixes of Fetty Wap, Makonnen and The Weeknd, as well as collaboration tracks with Rizzla, Shwarz and DJ 809. Often industrial, and sometimes dark her productions are always club-friendly. Watch out for her US tour and upcoming work with NY vocalist, FXWRK.

Her Mixpak FM is not for the faint-hearted - an energetic run through some hard club sounds, including remixes of Caribbean artists Kerwin Du Bois, Zoelah, as well as rave re-visionings of pop & rap hits, and nods to NY club affiliates False Witness, Joey Labeija & Cueheat.

mixpak fm 080 - dinamarca

Mixpak FM 080 comes from Stockholm-based producer & DJ, Dinamarca. Mixing his Chilean heritage with his European club influences, Dinamarca's music is experimental pop music with a Latin American flavour. His first solo EP for his recently launched label, Staycore, is a microcosm of his sound - from the memorable melodies & pounding club rhythms of 'Zorna' and 'Descontrol' to the vocal collabs with Gnucci and Kassandra, as well as a feature from NY producer DJ New Jersey Drone.

His Mixpak FM showcases many of his own productions and remixes, as well as a collaboration with L-Vis 1990, not to mention music from all over the american continents - from Puerto Rico to Brazil.

Mixpak FM - Rushmore

Mixpak FM 079 comes from UK producer & DJ, Rushmore. As a co-founder of (and resident at) one of London's most exciting club nights, House of Trax, Rushmore has carved out a much-needed niche: booking international underground club legends and new artists, without compromising on arguably the most important thing - dancing. After playing host to DJ Sliink, Paul Johnson, Slimzee, Tyree Cooper, Spooky and more, House of Trax made an organic move into recorded music & clothing with Trax Couture, now four white labels in.

His Mixpak FM mix is a mirror of the label's endeavours - tracing the dots between new UK sounds, raw energy from the US underground of Baltimore, NYC and further afield to the dembow-inflected offerings of Mexico's NAAFI, not to mention his own productions and remixes.

Mixpak fm 78-hann Mixpak FM 078 is a special episode from Hann, a Long Island / Bronx duo made up of 18-year-old Lite feet producers Chris Designs & Lil Live. Lite Feet, as its name might suggest, is both a genre and a style of dance with a strong foothold in New York City culture. Now ubiquitous on the subway, Litefeet dancers have been around since the mid 00s, mostly hailing from Harlem or The Bronx, with the dance bearing some kind of familial resemblance to B-Boying or Popping.

In the past year, the NYPD have cracked down on the dance on the subway, which has also had various film pieces & articles on it if you want to experience the look & feel of the dance from afar. Though the music is integral to the dance, there has been little emphasis on the producers behind the energetic 100 BPM tracks, that often use heavy samples and switch up every 8 bars for the dancers to show off their acrobatics in battle. It looks like this is set to change; Hann have a Fact Mag documentary, collaborations with Zora Jones and Cabo Blanco, and a solo EP in the works for 2015.

Their Mixpak FM is exclusively tracks produced or remixed by the duo, a 45-minute 35 track look into the sound - combining Lite Feet with NY party staples, from dancehall to rap to RnB.

Mixpak FM - Prettybwoy Mixpak FM 077 comes from Japanese producer and DJ, Prettybwoy. Since the inception of Mixpak, we've always had some connection with the Japanese scene (our whole blog was translated into Japanese at one point) and have covered some points in Japanese grime, and of course not forgetting our release with Hard Nips.

While the sound of grime has notoriously not been particularly well exported or translatable, Japan looks to be the biggest (but still very small) scene outside of the UK, with a number of MCs and DJs inspired by the genre. Having followed UK club music for a long time, Prettybwoy has been steady representing the sound of UKG, 2-step, bassline and grime in Tokyo for the last 10 years, running the nights 'Golly Gosh' and 444-1 Tokyo. Things have come full circle for Prettybwoy lately, with his productions being featured on EZ's Kiss FM show and on the Big Dada "Grime 2.0" compilation.

His Mixpak FM runs through sounds from like-minded Japanese artists - DoubleClapperz, Carpainter, Duff, 1Ta, Ena, 100Mado - as well as tracks from UK contemporaries.

Mixpak Fm - brackles

Mixpak FM 076 comes from British DJ, producer and Rinse FM host Brackles. Having been on the station for an impressive five years, Brackles has become a Rinse staple both on the airwaves and on the label, with his debut album (Rinse presents Brackles) released back in 2012. It's no surprise his show has worked its way to a prime slot and lasted the test of time - his selection is eclectic but considered, drawing from the strands of British club music: UK funky, house, grime and garage all featuring prominently as well as the occasional rap, RnB or afropop sounds. His production & selection work to the same ethos - with influences from 2-step and house, the welcome feature of a sweet female vocal and of course, not forgetting that emotive Serani remix.

His latest EP is the inaugural release for Manchester's Swing Ting, featuring MC Fox, who we were lucky to share the stage with at RBMA Carnival this year.

His Mixpak FM stays true to the current UK house sound, with some familiar names from the world of bassline & UK funky.

Mixpak FM 075 comes from Irish producer & DJ, Shriekin'. A familiar name to fans of instrumental grime mainstays Boxed, Dusk & Blackdown or Slackk, Shriekin' has few official releases but a constant stream of impressive VIPs. His debut EP, Gold & Featherwork, dropped just last week, fittingly joining the likes of Finn, Slackk and Inkke on the Local Action roster. Playing with the motifs of sino-grime and intricate melodies, Gold & Featherwork is a record that is, like much of his music, mature and considered; often cinematic and always atmospheric.

His Mixpak FM is packed full of dubs from like-minded UK producers, moving through grime, bassline, percussive club tracks and of course some of his own exclusives.

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 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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Mixpak FM - HDD Mixpak FM 064 is brought to you by London DJs and promoters, Hipsters Don't Dance. Made up of Hootie Who & Kazabon, the duo have been pushing the dancehall-soca-rap-afrobeats sound for years, with their longstanding clubnight and mixes. They were also responsible for these edits of our Douster release last year. With an encyclopaedic knowledge of all the aforementioned genres, it felt right to ask them to dig in deep to one of the most exciting sounds to blow up in London lately: Afrobeats.

Hootie Who describes how they were inspired for their Mixpak FM mix:

"Ever since Kazabon and I started the HDD club night we wanted to explore our respective heritages and its musical output. Kazabon's heritage is Ireland by way of Trinidad which helps explain her voracious appetite for Soca. I am from Nigeria but born and raised in the west. It's funny because until recently Naija music reflected Trinidad's Soca season in the sense that artists tried to release music around a specific time of year (Christmas). The day after Christmas is Calabar Carnival, the carnival is still in its infancy but it's already Africa's largest street party. That carnival experience heavily influenced this mix. From the floats pumping out the biggest Afropop songs of the moment, to the Channel O/ MTV Africa after parties where South African house reigns supreme to the packed clubs where people try out the latest dance craze. It's all here in this mix that captures the sound of the past few years. This mix can't do that experience the justice it deserves especially the feeling of connecting with your homeland but we did our best. Trust me you haven't lived until you have seen someone on roller skates azonto in the middle of the blazing hot summer."

With both an EP for Local Action and a beat tape (as in cassette) for Astral Black due early next year, he'll be a grime producer to watch for in 2014.

His Mixpak FM is an interesting ride through what seems to be influences from the UK and international underground - from archive Roll Deep to new grime contemporaries Logos and Strict Face, afrobeats to RnB refixes, and of course many of his own unreleased productions.

Mixpak FM 060 comes from UK producer Lenkemz. His sound is unadulterated club music that has made its way onto Slit Jockey, Senseless, Jeffree's and Fool's Gold. His inspirations seem to run as deep as clubbed-out soca, bassline, reggaeton, dark electronica and straight up dance music.

His Mixpak FM runs through heaters from UK to USA - Baltimore club to grime, Diplo to Dubbel Dutch, and his own productions thrown in.

Mixpak FM 059 comes from Glasgow-via-Slovenia DJ & producer, Nightwave. An RBMA graduate, Judo champion and now label head for her newly-launched imprint Heka Trax, Nightwave is not a girl to be messed with. Drawing from classic Chicago house, techno, juke, rap and strains of the UK bass spectrum, she's landed releases on Unknown to the Unknown, Local Action and a collab with Rustie for Warp. We know we can vibe with anyone who makes crazy Trina edits and has 808 in their soundcloud handle.

Her Mixpak FM comes with a strong dose of RnB, Hip Hop, Juke and, of course, some of her own (and new) productions.

Mixpak FM 058 comes from Portland based producer, EL CUCU¥. Last year he impressed us deeply with his trunk-rattling submission for the first Mixpak Pressure compilation - 'Thug Theogony'. He's as mysterious as his boogieman name suggests, but his eyes (and ears) are firmly on the club - with tracks spanning from hyperactive juke to blissed out 112bpm and dark trap.

His Mixpak FM passes through some dreamlike dancehall, latin club, his own remixes & edits as well as some Mixpak family faves.

Part of the #KUNQ movement alongside folks like Mixpak family Rizzla & Blk.Adonis, False Witness' productions and mixes draw inspiration and influence from Latin America, the Caribbean and around the world, 'with an aggressive queer twist'. Impressed by his concept mixtape for Dis Magazine, and his collab EP Isla Toxico, we knew he'd deliver a hot Mixpak FM.

Mixpak FM 056 is brought to you by versatile London producer, Cadenza. While he often sits in the UK tradition of creating club music with a strong Jamaican influence, he's also known for his hip hop beats, straight-up electronic instrumentals and even the occasional bassline track. In the last year alone his tracks have landed on US labels Mad Decent, Fool's Gold, and on our second Mixpak Pressure compilation released earlier this year, as well as the UK's Dummy imprint. Alongside his underground releases, he has also produced two cuts on Ryan Leslie's upcoming album, Black Mozart.

Mixpak FM 055 comes from Australian producer, Lucid. If you were tuned in to our first Mixpak Pressure compilation, then you'll have heard his trancey, dark production on 'Transet' and the crazy video that went with it:


Or perhaps you've heard his releases for Pelican Fly or Nightshifters, or his mad remix of Ying Yang Twins. Contrary to what his moniker would have you believe, his productions are hard to pin down to just one style, flipping between the influences of house, grime and hip hop, but always with that club leaning, whether dark or playful.

His Mixpak FM rolls through his own edits & originals, jersey club, hip hop & RnB tinges.

Mixpak FM 054 comes from ballroom legend, Vjuan Allure (pronounced like Vaughn). Vjuan has as much energy for production as his dancers do on the runway, having created an alarming 350+ Ha's since he first remixed 'The Ha Dance' for the ballroom scene. No stone is left unturned - his remixes reach for chart-topping RnB artists, to cartoon characters and even YouTube memes.

With his name firmly at the helm of the new ballroom phenomenon (with the likes of Mike Q, Divoli S'vere, Kevin JZ Prodigy and more), he now upkeeps eight club residencies and as ballroom spreads from its NY origins across the world, his releases have made it onto labels like Night Slugs, Jeffree's and Ultra Nate's 410 Paradox. He's still keeping it real though - check out his website to buy an original production for just 45$ or buy a CD.

His Mixpak FM features exclusively his own material and, though it only clocks in at 12 tracks long, is packed full of energy and crazy samples. Storm the runway.

Mixpak FM 052 comes from East London grime producer, Faze Miyake. Though he only really burst onto the scene in 2011 with the huge 'Take Off', he's since been a leading figure in the current wave of instrumental grime. Walking the 140bpm line, his productions marry that Bow bassline with deep south drum patterns, propping up some of the genre's best: from Boy Better Know to Kozzie. Alongside being a Family Tree member and running his own label, Woofer Music, he's just joined the Rinse FM roster and is expected to release an album this summer.

Mixpak FM 048 comes from London grime producer, Slew Dem Crew member and boss of Ghost House Records, Spooky. Around since the dawn of grime, he's been holding down pirate radio shows for over a decade now and producing some super heavy, innovative and often playful tracks for labels like No Hats No Hoods and Oil Gang. You can still catch him doing his radio show on Deja Vu FM which, if you're lucky and he's covering for someone, can run for 6 hours.

Though the conversation about the influences and cross-sections of dancehall & grime is not new - see the still excellent Grime in the Dancehall podcast for a thorough run-down and discussion - Spooky is certainly keeping the link alive, well and deep, giving us a constant reminder of UK soundsystem lineage. In amongst his many releases and remixes, you'll find samples and hat-tips that run from Bob Marley and Barrington Levy right through to 90s classics and contemporary dancehall.

So for his Mixpak FM, we asked him to pull from his collection of reggae and dancehall-inspired grime and his (live) mix is something quite special - from his own productions to P Jam's take on Eek A Mouse, Chimpo's grime version of Sleng Teng and even some Luciano thrown in. Read our Q&A with Spooky below to find out how the dancehall sound got into his productions, his most memorable Slew Dem sets and his favourite reggae records.

Spooky Q&A

Where are you right now? In a East London hell hole.

How & where did you record this mix? Recorded the mix at a mate's studio called Real Vibes based up in Tottenham.

How long have you been doing the grime thing? What pushed you into it? Been doing grime before it was even called grime. Plus grime was more or less the music everyone was into at the time and the music was (and still is) exciting.

How did the Slew Dem Crew come about - how did you all meet? Slew Dem have been about since the very late 90s.. I only came into it around 2005/06.

What's your most memorable Slew Dem set/performance? Performance-wise: me, Chronik, G Man, Merky Ace (Family Tree) and DJ Magic in Prague last year (2012). Radio-wise: me, Esco, Chronik, G Man, Rage & Tempa T on Rinse FM in 2006.

So many of your tracks take from reggae/dancehall - what's your relationship with the Jamaican sound? Blame my folks. They're from JA and they were down for playing old time reggae, ska, rocksteady or lovers rock.

What influence has dancehall had on you, as a producer or as an individual? I like to revive an old dancehall or reggae track every now and then.... give them a update but not take too much away from the original. And I know everyone can relate to a few of 'em even now!

What links do you think there are between grime & dancehall? Probably down to the bass-heavy vibrations. Plus you got the likes of Riko Dan, Killa P, Jamakabi, Badness etc who bring that dancehall element into grime as well.

You've been playing some of reggae stuff in your Deja sets recently - what are your favourite reggae/ dancehall records? Not too much though!! Favourites would have to be Elizabethan Reggae (Boris Gardener). Soul Serenade (Byron Lee), Silly Games (Janet Kay), Wide Awake In A Dream (Barry Biggs) and Stealing Love (Carlene Davis).

What gets the most wheels in a live Spooky set? Probably "Spartan" from what I remember.

What's the best thing about the grime scene now in 2013? There's more professionalism within the scene. Maybe a bit more unity and positivity is needed along with a few more DJs and a few more raves / organizations.

What's the difference between now and when you started out? In my opinion.... there are barely any under 18 raves, no-one's really hungry for radio, most pirate radio stations only following what genre of music is hot, most record shops have closed down and the music now really goes hand in hand with the internet.

What else have you got coming up this year, release-wise? A double A-side 10" vinyl, a single called "Baby" on Unknown To The Unknown Records, a track called "Moonlight" on the Big Dada 'Grime 2.0' compilation out 5th May and a couple remixes as well as knocking out a few releases on my Ghost House label and the occasional free download.

Mixpak 028 comes from the one and only DJ Assault, Detroit dirty rap linchpin and the father of Booty Bass. Most people will be familiar with Assault through his mid-90s booty hit, 'Ass N Titties', pioneering the sound of melding electro beats with raunchy lyrics. His first self-run label, Electrofunk, was so popular that it had to be split into a further two labels, after selling more records than any other techno artist in the motor city at the time. After releasing countless club hits (and performing as his rap alter-ego Craig Diamonds on the side), Assault established his latest label Jefferson Ave.

DJ Assault's Mixpak FM mix is a ride through 28 of his own productions, all mixed together in the token ghettotech fast-paced style. Watch out for his signature out-there sampling, from Rick James to raccoons. This one comes with a parental guidance warning!

Their huge UK funky and house remixes of Gyptian, Busy Signal and Mz Bratt are not to be missed, and neither is their Mixpak FM offering, which showcases not only their DJ skills, but more importantly a great selection of unreleased Greenmoney Recordings material, from Major Notes to their very own Greenmoney Dubs Vol. 2.

Mixpak 022 comes from Parisian producer, Bobmo. As half of High Powered Boys (with Surkin), one third of Marble Players (alongside Para One and Surkin), and responsible for a string of his own respected productions in the last few years, Bobmo actually started out as a rapper before being signed to (the sadly now defunct) Institubes label for his beats. Since then, he has released many a quality EP, delving into house, electro and all-round club ready tracks - from Bring It to Let's Go Bobmo, and his latest The Cliff.

His Mixpak FM mix bounces through brand new productions from his fellow Marble Players, classic house from Armando and remixes from Sam Tiba and Kink. Close your eyes and imagine you're in a superclub in Paris. You can subscribe to Mixpak FM via iTunes, subscribe with an RSS reader from the Mixpak FM site or download this mix directly.

Mixpak 021 is brought to you by Sabo, DJ, producer and head of Sol Selectas records. The now LA-based triple threat is well known for his inspired mix of genres, from Cumbia to Miami Bass but along with Dave Nada, Sabo was one of the pioneering producers behind Moombahton, responsible for the Moombahton Massive parties and the accompanying 4 EPs that helped showcase their creation to the world. He's transformed House of Pain, Benga & Coki and Jamie XX into 108bpm moombahton club hits, created originals that are now genre staples, and his rework of Dennis Ferrer's 'Hey Hey' made it onto Mad Decent's 'Blow Your Head' compilation last year.

His Mixpak FM mix is made up entirely of releases from his respected Moombahton Massive EPs, 55 minutes of originals and remixes which are all available for free download over on his soundcloud.

Mixpak 020 is brought to you by Extreme Animals, aka artist Jacob Ciocci of the legendary Paper Rad collective and David Wightman, a lecturer in Pop Music Studies at UCSD and member of bands such as Amplitude, Powdered Wigs and Chariots of Fire. Together, they make some of the strangest, high energy and experimental electronic music and videos around. If you're unfamiliar with their work, here is a glimpse from their bio:

The project began (as early as 2002) as an approach to 90s trance anthems interpreted through the lens of damaged noise music, with David on spastic drums and Jacob on junk electronics and distorted vocals.Their live show and sound has now evolved and consists of elaborate videos, guitar, and incorporates a range of sonic references from baroque music to booty bass to mash-ups and metal guitar shredding, while still maintaining the rawkus emotional immediacy that has been their hallmark for the past 8 years. Their videos (directed by Jacob Ciocci, Paper Rad founding member) have been imitated the world over, combining hyper remixes of popular culture with original animation into a bewildering maelstrom of contemporary American pathos.

Their exclusive Mixpak FM mix is Extreme Animals in a nutshell: exploring the clash of pop culture, from Justin Bieber to Ceephax Acid Crew, adding in humour, parody, reverence and fun (and even some Vengaboys). Make sure you watch out for their interjections during the mix, and stay tuned til the very end for the full effect.

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.

Responsible for smashing down Major Lazer's Notting Hill Carnival Party (talk about stealing the limelight), running Tropical Bass party Chicken N Beer, and more recently putting out tunes with Richie Beretta and Fellow, Jillionaire knows how to keep the vibes pumping. He will also be launching a new label, Feel Up, anytime soon - we expect nothing but big sounds. This exclusive mix steers away from his latest offerings though, taking us back to some dancehall foundations, as Jillionaire said himself, it's made up of 'the guns and girls chunes that defined the late 80s and early 90s'.

Deep Teknologi are a production duo and label hailing from London, headed by S.E.F and T. Williams, and have been responsible for some blinding house tracks that seem to perfectly blend the new with the old: from the appropriately named 'Anthem' to the soulful 'Heartbeat', with sounds that wind sweetly between house, dubstep and funky. The multi-talented team (aside from the huge task of running a label, they also run clubnights and produce TV shows) made waves in 2010 with their mixes, records and signings and are set for the same this year.

One half of DT, S.E.F, compiled this mix for us to show us exactly how they roll. It's full of new and exclusive tracks, including some big forthcoming records from the label.

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...
