Chicago’s Starfoxxx released the Karolina EP under the alias STLKRFXXX and describes it as a “combination of Moombahton and Witch House for a one and done Bruja-ton EP.” The concept behind the EP is Starfoxxx’s unhealthy fascination (obsession maybe) with a young lady and his transformation into his alter-ego, STLKRFXXX. Bruja-ton is a term he’s coined for the growing lexicon of fractured Moombah genres. Whatever you call it, it really sets the mood for a serious creep session, great to squat on top of a keg and do your best Gargoyle to. Check out more on Starfoxxx’s Soundcloud.
Melé served up an exclusive mix for the Red Bull Studios:
This month Liverpudlian Krissy Peers a.k.a Melé takes to the ones and twos to put together a mix of heavy weight electro featuring tracks by Instra: Mental, house classics by Livin Joy, Robin S and some of his own dubplates.
Krissy’s production skills are as versatile as his DJ sets, with tunes like Starlight Express (Mixpak) that have all the hall marks of a pounding techno bad boy to the sizzurp snare of Lego (Mixpak). In June 2011 Melé jumped in the Red Bull Studios with Toddla T as part of Red Bull Mixtape collaborating on an 808 inspired joint. As well as working in the lab with Toddla, Krissy has also remixed for ice cream tattooed rapper Gucci Mane, Mumdance, Greenmoney and Contakt.
A roundup of this week’s choice twitter posts from Mixpak artists, remixers and extended family.

Here’s a brand new and weird-as-usual video from Extreme Animals, a thugged out version of the Harry Potter theme tune and a witchin’ video to along with it. Remember EA did us an exclusive Mixpak FM mix last month that’s still up for the download or stream right here.
Mixpak 022 comes from Parisian producer, Bobmo. As half of High Powered Boys (with Surkin), one third of Marble Players (alongside Para One and Surkin), and responsible for a string of his own respected productions in the last few years, Bobmo actually started out as a rapper before being signed to (the sadly now defunct) Institubes label for his beats. Since then, he has released many a quality EP, delving into house, electro and all-round club ready tracks – from Bring It to Let’s Go Bobmo, and his latest The Cliff.
His Mixpak FM mix bounces through brand new productions from his fellow Marble Players, classic house from Armando and remixes from Sam Tiba and Kink. Close your eyes and imagine you’re in a superclub in Paris.
