Mixpak FM – Lucid


Mixpak FM 055 comes from Australian producer, Lucid. If you were tuned in to our first Mixpak Pressure compilation, then you’ll have heard his trancey, dark production on ‘Transet’ and the crazy video that went with it:

Or perhaps you’ve heard his releases for Pelican Fly or Nightshifters, or his mad remix of Ying Yang Twins. Contrary to what his moniker would have you believe, his productions are hard to pin down to just one style, flipping between the influences of house, grime and hip hop, but always with that club leaning, whether dark or playful.

His Mixpak FM rolls through his own edits & originals, jersey club, hip hop & RnB tinges.

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

Dre Skull on MTV Iggy

MTV Iggy look into the latest moves in the dancehall-rap love affair, and check in with Dre Skull in the process:

And while, like Mavado noted, there seems to be a lack of a support system within Jamaica for emerging artists and producers, he spoke of how American labels are more than willing to pick up the slack, saying, “I’ve spoken with many people within the major label system, and it’s amazing to me how many hardcore dancehall fans work within that system in positions of power (from A&Rs to heads of labels). That gives me hope that if things start to take off for even one dancehall artist on a wider scale, there will be many people with power who will cheer it on and give their support.” Dre Skull himself played that role when he suggested to Pusha T’s manager that he work with Popcaan, resulting in Pusha T’s Young Chop-produced single “Blocka” featuring Popcaan and Travi$ Scott.
