DJ Gravy here filling in for DJ Theory currently on tour in Asia and editorial director Jesse Serwer roughin’ it down in the paradise of Dominica (check for some fly Dominica stories and webisodes courtesy of him and Martei Korley coming soon). Meanwhile I’m stuck in the crib waitin’ for Hurricane Sandy fi gweh, why not fill in? So here goes, we’ve got two of Miami’s top sounds and a soca video mix deh pon Mixtape Monday this week.
Eccentrix Sound, Riddim Series Vol. 1: Widely recognized as Miami’s top new sound, in addition to being the first DJ to christen South Florida’s famed Truck Stop party, Eccentrix Kingpin Addy has played for legendary Black Chiney Sound and has collaborated with every major sound to pass through Miami in the last several years. And dude’s still young too. If you’ve been to any reggae event in the South Florida recently than you’ve seen the Riddim Series T shirt. This here’s a likkle taste of some big mixtapes in the pipeline right now…
DJ Crown Prince, Vintage Vol. 2: Our boy Crown Prince has been coming through with serious fire for Mixtape Mondays on a consistent basis. Also reppin’ Miami, his recent joints have spanned dancehall, soca and now this one, a throwback to Roots 101 for y’all, hol’ a meds and turn the bass up pon da one ya!
DJ Bravo, Soca Video Mixtape Vol. 1: Got this sent to us and hey, it’s got music videos and some fete friendly visuals to go with its soca soundtrack, Bravo reps NYC and appears to be available for weddings, bar mitzvahs and whatnot! The video mix touches on recent bangers by Machel, Kerwin, Lil Rick, and a Rihanna soca refix for good measure… Bacchanalists, press play.
