Mixpak FM 077 comes from Japanese producer and DJ, Prettybwoy. Since the inception of Mixpak, we’ve always had some connection with the Japanese scene (our whole blog was translated into Japanese at one point) and have covered some points in Japanese grime, and of course not forgetting our release with Hard Nips.
While the sound of grime has notoriously not been particularly well exported or translatable, Japan looks to be the biggest (but still very small) scene outside of the UK, with a number of MCs and DJs inspired by the genre. Having followed UK club music for a long time, Prettybwoy has been steady representing the sound of UKG, 2-step, bassline and grime in Tokyo for the last 10 years, running the nights ‘Golly Gosh’ and 444-1 Tokyo. Things have come full circle for Prettybwoy lately, with his productions being featured on EZ’s Kiss FM show and on the Big Dada “Grime 2.0″ compilation.
His Mixpak FM runs through sounds from like-minded Japanese artists – DoubleClapperz, Carpainter, Duff, 1Ta, Ena, 100Mado – as well as tracks from UK contemporaries.
You can subscribe to Mixpak FM via iTunes, subscribe with an RSS reader from the Mixpak FM site or download this mix directly.

Jubilee has been a busy gyal lately, taking her talents worldwide this fall with shows in Australia, Europe, and Puerto Rico. She’s got a few upcoming dates in the States before the year is out (check ‘em out here!). And if she’s not coming to your city anytime soon, get your Jubilee fix by peeping one of her recent mixes for Serato and Triple J, her remixes for Anna Lunoe and Gnucci, or her recent interview in Day & Nite. As always, stay up to date with Jubilee on Twitter, and be on the lookout for more music in the new year!
