Mix: Massive


Producers have been dropping seriously fast tracks lately and try as I might, I couldn’t fit them in a mix. So I made a whole new mix that starts brisk and ends somewhere past breakneck speed. It’s a face-ripper, folks. Highlights include a cut from the banging new Machinedrum album and a killer 12-inch on Metalheadz by, of all people, Om Unit. This one goes to 11.

1. Pinch & Shackleton – Torn & Submerged
2. Boody & LE1F – Soda (MikeQ & Divoli S’vere Daughter’s Ha Remix)
3. Visionist – Escape
4. Nomine – Anxiety Tribe
5. Wiley – Flying (Bass mix)
6. Addison Groove – Footcrab
7. RP Boo – Steamidity
8. Traxman – War On Mars ft. DJ Fred
9. DJ Rashad & DJ Spinn – Brighter Days
10. John Wizards – Limpop
11. Ruffhouse – Greyscale
12. Machinedrum – Gunshotta
13. System – Sound Man
14. Mark Pritchard – Soundboy Fuck Off
15. Om Unit – The Hand
16. Addison Groove & Sam Binga – Ol Man Ek

I’m going to be appearing at the Polaris Music Prize Hip-Hop Salon on Dec 14, at the Drake Hotel in Toronto, on a panel with Ty Harper, Anupa Mistry, Thomas Quinlan and moderated by Joshua Ostroff. It should be a cracking event, not least because we’re talking about our favourite new Canadian hip-hop records (in my case, by Rich Kidd and Ian Kamau).

Come check it out! http://www.facebook.com/events/282778095094189
