Culture Clash Dubplate Mix

Earlier this year, we competed in Red Bull’s Culture Clash in London at the o2 Arena. Up against Wiz Khalifa & Taylor Gang, Wiley & Eskimo Dance and the UKG Allstars, we brought out Popcaan, Spice, Kranium and a whole bunch of UK guests to bring the trophy home.

We prepared around 100 dubs especially for the night, and we weren’t able to play them all, so they’ve been assembled now in a special mixtape that Red Bull have now released!

Listen to the mix below and watch them in action in the video of all of our rounds from the clash.

Mixpak FM: DJ NJ Drone

Mixpak FM 094 comes from NY based producer and DJ, DJ NJ Drone. Working on the outer edges of club music and experimental electronic music, his productions are often impressively furious and frenzied, playing with the unexpected and the mechanical, much like his name would suggest.

After releases on Bootleg Tapes and Track Meet, his latest record, Syn Stair is a full length LP for Purple Tape Pedigree. A tense and dark record, his sputtering rhythms roam genre-free but often invoke the ghosts of juke and hardcore.

In his words, his Mixpak FM “is a stream through the wild MIND CLUB river with a lot of unreleased hits and some familiar appearances!”

Wildlife! – Feverpitch Out Now & Mixtape

MIX054 Cover Art

Wildlife’s debut EP for Mixpak, Feverpitch, is out today exclusively on the Mixpak store!

Though currently finishing up his graduate studies in Contemporary Art Practice with an emphasis on Sound Installation, this 3-track EP keeps the focus strictly on the club. Drawing from the foundational Fever Pitch riddim that now operates like an island version of the Amen Break, the release sees Wildlife! adeptly melding the DNA of Caribbean music through-the-ages with a more industrial and minimalist club aesthetic. The end result is a 140bpm haven where bubbling, dembow, grime and the ghosts of dancehall and rap can all rave together. Sometimes dark and always tuff, it’s the track names that say it all – these are weapons for a sweaty dancefloor.

To celebrate, here’s a brand new mixtape by Wildlife! Head to his soundcloud for the full tracklisting.

FADER Mix: Murlo

Hot on the heels of the Jasmine EP and video, Murlo has dropped a mixtape for Fader. A very special, collaborative mixtape with Gemma Dunleavy, the mix features a load of VIPs and dubs. In the words of FADER:

“When is a mix not a mix? When it’s a mutant mixtape, that’s when. For his contribution to the FADER Mix series, London producer Murlo hit up his “Jasmine” collaborator Gemma Dunleavy to help cook up something pretty special. The Dublin singer added her wistful flow to a handful of dancehall riddims, as well as a bunch of Murlo originals, including some intriguingly untitled beats. See what I mean about mutant mixtape? It’s the sound of the artist stretching, hinting at what’s to come. The result is strikingly tender: bubble-like xylophone tones, warm dancehall echoes, whispers of grime’s top-line melodies.”
