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.
