Toddla T recently got first dibs on Jubilee’s lead single “Wine Up”,  off her debut album “After Hours”, giving it a spin on his BBC RADIO 1 show before anyone else. Returning the favor the following week, Jubilee delivered a top-notch guest mix for Toddla. Click through the flyer above to check out the amped-up mix, which features tracks from Mr. Vegas, Popcaan and Murlo’s viral remix of Rihanna’s “Needed Me”.

NTS Carnival Mix

Carnival kept us busy this year as NTS enlisted us to provide a special one-off mix in celebration. It’s two jam-packed hours of dancehall, soca, grime & reggae that will definitely make you feel like you’re smack in the middle of Powis Terrace right as Carnival gets live.

Mixmag In Session

Notting Hill Carnival is upon us and our exclusive ‘In Session’ mix for Mixmag is charged with the kind of energy that runs through Europe’s biggest street party. In our own words: “It’s a hi NRG Caribbean-influenced mix (all above 120bpm), so a lot of Jamaican tracks but also some Trini, Dominican and UK vibes inside.”

Murlo – Furnace Premiere

MIX058-Cover-Art

The final pre-release stream from Murlo’s upcoming Mipak release, Odyssey, just dropped. Check it out over at The Fader, or stream below. If you missed the first two offerings, make sure check out “Moodswung” and “Cascade” before Odyssey is released on November 6th! (Vinyl release scheduled shortly after).

Mr One Hundred – Calypso Fugitive Out Now + Rozalla Bootleg

Mr One Hundred - Calypso Fugitive

We’re excited to announce the second Mixpak release from London-via St. Louis producer Mr One Hundred – Calypso Fugitive. Building on the work of his first record for Mixpak, Palm Tree Destruction, Mr One Hundred continues to play with the boundaries of soca music, exploring frenetic rhythms and spirited, uplifting crescendos.

A product of his storied history in dance music, Calypso Fugitive finds Mr One Hundred exploring the fruitful regions between soca and Detroit techno à la Juan Atkins and Omar S. With soca as a container for his musical ideas and influences, Mr One Hundred is making Caribbean-inspired music that pushes against neatly defined genres, employing an overtly dubbed out palette and halftime rhythmic elements to great effect. Steel pans, whistles and cowbells pepper the slow builds that drop into percussion-drenched breakneck euphoria.

Perfect for a sweaty basement club or a carnival set, Calypso Fugitive plays with everything that soca inspires, in a uniquely Mr One Hundred way.

Pick up the EP today at the Mixpak Store, or on iTunes.

As an added bonus to further your impending carnival excitement – Mr One Hundred is offering up his power-soca bootleg of Rozalla’s classic “Everybody’s Free” – Energy flash!
