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.
His Mixpak FM is a global dance sampler that leaves you pining for a sweaty Bushwick basement to let go in: expect tracks from his latest EP, as well as gifts from Portugal, Mexico, the Netherlands and a Katy Perry baile funk edit.

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.
