#MixtapeMondays time again. Bust a wine with some big sounds from around the world below.
Samrai & Platt, Truancy Volume 127: X amount of wickedness on this one courtesy of Manchester, UK’s Samrai and Platt constructed for the Truancy mix series. Representing the Swing Ting label family who are responsible for such gems as this scorcher from Busy Signal, they’ve also been working closely with JA’s Equiknoxx crew which is definitely evident on the mix. Look out for nuff exclusives as well as their remix of Kush Arora and Gappy Ranks’ “Anything A Anything“, Federation Sound’s “Highland Riddim” and much much more.

DJ Odyssey, Endless Soca: Belize Carnival is underway as well as Independence Day today so we had to pop off a straight soca mix to catch the energy while simultaneously dreaming of grilled lobsters and a cold Belikin. Repping for Belize City, DJ Odyssey gives you all the necessary tools for holding a proper fete – as always management will not be held responsible for wining on co-workers. Stream and download below
The Large, Way Up Mix: Our girl The Large from NYC via London always comes extra nice with the mixes, marrying the sounds of the tropics, the UK and beyond. Her latest endeavor Way Up delivers everything we’ve come to expect and then some and will definitely be in heavy rotation this week. Soundcloud unfortunately pulled the mix down (all too common these days) so you’ll have to pass through the custom site for this one. We also had to include the mix CD cover of the year nomination as well for full effect below. Download here, tracklist here
