Words by DJ Theory —
After a big week which saw our own new mix series debut with Jillionaire’s Fog Up D Place, we’ve got more heat on deck on Mixtape Mondays. This week we premiere a new ting from some real yutes, bring bashment and bass from Switzerland to Manhattan, and touch down in the UK with the son of reggae royalty. The week has officially started.
LargeUp Premiere: Cregis x Eccentrix Sound, Real Utez Talk Real Tingz: Big premiere this week via Miami champion sound Eccentrix and Miami/JA youth Cregis. As nephew of the don dada Super Cat, Cregis has been making some noise lately and lets it be known he’s here to make a statement with this new mixtape. Eccentrix, who have been murdering the mixtape game for years, handles the hosting duties here courtesy of Selector Addy, alongside the Crash Dummy camp at the controls. Furthering his uncle’s legacy while producing a flow of his own and applying it to a modern sound, Cregis is definitely an artist that could easily buss on the scene any day now… Stream and download the mix below to hold a vibe with some Real Utez:
Wildlife!, Mixpak Sound System Guest Mix: This one is a family affair on many fronts. Our good friends and affiliates at Radio Lily have just added a new show from the heavyweight Mixpak team to their programming (which already includes our own LargeUp Sessions show, on Thursdays from 6 to 8, if you didn’t know). For the second installment of the weekly show (the first featured guest Dubbel Dutch), showrunner Jubilee invited the Swiss badman himself Wildlife! to run chune, which he took as an opportunity to rinse strictly unreleased original and remixed material from his upcoming LP, Roxy Reboot, (look out for more from that album on LargeUp soon) featuring the likes of Ward 21, Terry Lynn, Serocce, Natalie Storm and more. What a guy. Follow Mixpak Radio on twitter for updates, or catch the show live on RadioLily.com every Tuesday from 6-8pm EST. Stream and download the mix below, tracklist here.
Extra Stout Sound, Girls Gone Sexii: New ting from a steadily rising UK sound making their MM debut. With Jamie Rodigan — son of none other than David Rodigan — behind the boards, this one from Extra Stout is an upfront mix of current dancehall and bashment to get the UK ravers in the vibe for their most recent dance. Being the son of the undisputed boss of reggae radio and soundclashes wordwide must be some insanely large shoes to fill, but Jamie is definitely out there doing work. In addition to big tunes and remixes from Kartel, Popcaan, Konshens, Tommy Lee and many more, look out for the exclusive new track from Stylo G “Brick Wall” in there as well.
