Massiv Mix Vol. 1, Jillionaire Sucks: In between skating around the world with Major Lazer, our Trini representative/contributor Jillionaire cooked up this mix last spring, the first up in a mix series with clothing line Massiv. Massiv give regular salutes to island culture through their designs and blog so it’s only fitting they rostered Trini Chris for this one. Despite the title and his approach to personal branding, Jillionaire actually doesn’t suck all that much. Doing what he does best, he blends wavy dance tunes with soca, dancehall, rap, moombahton—and whatever else he’s feeling—into a bubbling tropical bass melange. There’s also an edit toward the end of yours truly’s “Real Spenders” remix, flipped up with some motto verses and Machel Montano vibez.  Not mad at all… Stream and download below, tracklist here. While you’re at it grab this fresh soca mix from Massiv co-founder Dana Shayegan as well right here.
