Massiv Mix Vol. 1, Jillionaire Sucks: In between skating around the world with Major Lazer, our Trini representative/contributor Jillionaireย cooked up this mix last spring, the first up in a mix series with clothing lineย Massiv. Massiv give regular salutes to island culture through their designs and blogย 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, moombahtonโ€”and whatever else he’s feelingโ€”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. ย Not mad at all… Stream and download below, tracklist here. While you’re at it grab this fresh soca mix from Massiv co-founderย Dana Shayeganย as well rightย here.
