8. Faction Sound Crew, Tormenta Tropical


While we’re dealing with the subject of crossover mixes, let’s take a second to dig into this one from my team The Faction Sound Crew out of Vancouver, NYC, Miami and SF. This was a four-part mix we put together with membersย DJ Arems,ย Tanner,ย Iron Lyonย and yours trulyย to represent how Caribbean and tropical music can find it’s way into a multitude of spaces from the beach to the club. As expected there’s someย raw and unrated dancehall, some big bass and snares, and some melancholic and deeper tunes like the ’14 anthem Everything Nice remix to start things off. A nice combination of vibes if I do say so myself…
