Mixpak FM: DJ Ayres


Mixpak 025 is brought to you by DJ Ayres, founder of legendary NYC hip-hop party The Rub, that sees its 10th anniversary next year. Alongside his worldwide DJ gigs and presenting a radio show on Brooklyn Radio (and now on Scion A/V too), Ayres is responsible for a heap of official and unoffical party-smashing remixes in a huge range of genres, from ‘Pro Nails’ to ‘Move on Up’ to his latest remix of Max Glazer’s Flatlands riddim. For Hip Hop heads, The Rub’s History of Hip Hop podcasts are unmissable, just as his T&A Breaks LP is for B-More fans.

Alongside Tittsworth, Ayres also heads up T&A Records, the label that counts Dave Nada’s ‘Moombahton’ EP, TNT’s ‘Hot Gyal’ and Munchi’s ‘Murda Sound’ amongst its 28 releases. His versatility as a collector and selector is only further exemplified by his exclusive Mixpak FM mix, which runs seamlessly through Dancehall, Jungle, Moombahton, Funky and even a few Mixpak releases. Ring the alarm.

You can subscribe to Mixpak FM via iTunes, subscribe with an RSS reader from the Mixpak FM site or download this mix directly.

Aunty Adoley Remixes

The story goes that the folks over at Akwaaba Music hooked up with Ghanaian artist Xpensive Nframa back in 2007, but have since heard nothing from him. With no-one to forward proceeds from the music, they are giving the record away for free, complete with a remix package that reads (and sounds) like a tropical dreamteam: Douster, Chief Boima, Maga-Bo and Sabo. Not Xpensive at all.
