Mixpak FM: Faze Miyake

Mixpak FM 052 comes from East London grime producer, Faze Miyake. Though he only really burst onto the scene in 2011 with the huge ‘Take Off’, he’s since been a leading figure in the current wave of instrumental grime. Walking the 140bpm line, his productions marry that Bow bassline with deep south drum patterns, propping up some of the genre’s best: from Boy Better Know to Kozzie. Alongside being a Family Tree member and running his own label, Woofer Music, he’s just joined the Rinse FM roster and is expected to release an album this summer.

His Mixpak FM is a dark offering that steams its way through his own unreleased tracks, huge grime instrumentals and rap and trap influences.

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