Mixpak fam Schlachthofbronx have been locked up in the studio preparing their brand new full length, Dirty Dancing, for Disko B records. This is the first double A-side release from the album, with ‘Slowine’ and ‘Dickie Riddim feat. Warrior Queen’ (we’d been wondering where WQ had gone, and glad she’s back), and needless to say it’s a bomb. Pre-order it now.
Wildlife! has just compiled a chart of his favourite recent tracks for Juno, including Ital Tek, Whole Sick, Shackleton and 3 Mixpak artists. Head here to see his recommendations.
This year has been Mixpak’s best year so far, seeing the release of the Dre Skull produced Vybz Kartel full length, Kingston Story, alongside a big line up of EPs and singles from Andy Petr, Dubbel Dutch, Schlachthofbronx, Lil Scrappy, Koyote and Melé.
Thank you to everyone who supported us by buying a record, wearing a tee or coming to Mixpak Extended Play in 2011. Next year is set to be even bigger, with releases from Popcaan, Poirier, Douster, Dre Skull, the launch of our compilation series and a heap more to be announced in January. Stay tuned and happy new year!
This month’s Mixpak chart comes from Montreal’s Poirier, who will be releasing his Soca Road EP on Mixpak on January 17th. Watch out for more info on that soon. For now, take a dip into his top tunes, from Soca to Kuduro.
