Mixpak FM: Finn

Mixpak-FM-Finn

Mixpak FM 065 comes from UK producer, Finn. Emerging only a few months ago and making his way on to our radar via Slackk’s mixes, Finn’s sound comes in the great tradition and renewed vibrance of grime-meets-RnB-samples (see Spooky, Inkke, Milktray for more). With skipping rhythms that play with space & movement, Finn’s cut-up beats look to 90s icons like Ginuwine & Missy to complete that head-turning UK sound. With a contribution to the first Boxed compilation out and a forthcoming 12″ on Local Action, it’s already a certified formula.

His Mixpak FM is a journey through some of the most exciting sounds of this corner of the underground. Never afraid to dip into pop reworks as easily as the obscurer sounds of London, Finn puts his own work next to Mixpak favorites Murlo, Kingdom and DJ Q.

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

Popcaan – Everything Nice News

Thank you to everyone watching & supporting the new video we made for Popcaan’s ‘Everything Nice’. Here is a round-up of press:

Pitchfork: “In a world where everything is nice, synth strokes, key changes, and swigs of liquor are paced heartbreakingly gently—this celebration is joy, but Popcaan knows it’s also a much-needed release from something that might’ve left you too drained to celebrate properly.”

Spin: “Everything Nice” is perfectly bittersweet — a song about appreciating what you’ve got while acknowledging the very real possibility of not having any of it.”

Fader: “it’s a somewhat sullen reminder that life’s good till it’s not so go ahead and put your cups dem high while you can.”

Complex: “The video, set in black and white, is similarly laid back. Popcaan is flanked by his friends, and beautiful women while expressing his gratefulness at the way his life is going thus far.”

And some of our favourite comments from WorldStarHipHop:

“shout to my dude I aint gone lie this shit smooth as fuck real talk”

“i thought i was about to see lot of ladies wining but i still feelin this track tho”

“all this guys tracks get downloaded”

“If you dont know who popcaan is… chances are you’ve never had a night out”
