Huge link up this week at #MixtapeMondays with selections from Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe, Africa and beyond. Runit!
LargeUp Premiere: DJ Blass x Equiknoxx, The Link Up Mixtape: Seriously madd ting on deck from the Latin don himself DJ Blass in combination with Jamaica’s mighty Equiknoxx Music family. Appropriately titled The Link Up this has to be one of the baddest Latin-meets-dancehall mixtapes to date with an all-star cast of specials and exclusives from both camps voiced over reggae, dancehall and dembow riddims. Seriously, stop reading this and press play or download below. Tracklist here
Flex Up Crew, The Mix #1 Mixed by Kalibandulu: In comes the debut mixtape from global DJ/producer/remix collective Flex Up Crew. Mixed by Flex Up team members and Italian juggling champs Kalibandulu, the mix highlights remixes and bootlegs strictly from the squad – which includes the likes of Walshy Fire, Bad Royale, Ackeejuice Rockers, Johnny Roxx, Ruxell, Yungg Tripp and more. Definitely a unique concept to bring all these movements together under one roof, and some wicked remixes in here for sure. Stream below, tracklist and download here
DJ Green B, My Love Affair With Afrobeat: Bay Area-based selectress Green B is no stranger to the MM pages, always delivering solid Caribbean-driven mixes from roots reggae to soca. For her latest excursion she takes a slightly different geographical turn dipping into the infectious pulse of Afrobeats. This sound is exploding faster than almost any other right now (i.e. Drake’s first #1 single is an Afrobeat tune) and hopefully you grabbed our recent Afro Soca mix for even more settings. Afrobeats to di world! Stream below, download here
