Federation Sound x 10 Deep, Summer Murda: Music and style are two of NYC’s main exports. Federation Sound and the streetwear dons at 10 Deep, two entities which have represented some of the best that the city has to offer in those fields for years, came together for Summer Murda, a free mixtape that more than lived up to its name. Released at summer’s end, the mix dropped in time to strategically salute the West Indian Day Parade and Labor Day weekend madness in Brooklyn. With 49 tracks of dubplates and singles, Federation’s Max Glazer does what very few selectors can, and it’s all in a day’s work for the big sound (which also consists of Philly’s Kenny Meez, JA’s Alric & Boyd and the late Disco D). If you’re familiar with any of Federation’s past mixtapes, then you already knew this would be a timeless mix that’ll have you throwin up trigger fingers from start to finish. Catch a taste of the murda–with huge specials from Kardinal Offishal, Sean Paul and more–in the video here, and download the mix directly here.
