DJ Theory »Mixpak FM 017«
The first in our Carnival special for Mixpak FM, Mixpak 017 is brought to you by San Francisco’s DJ Theory. Aside from contributing to NYC’s excellent Large Up blog, Theory is also a stellar producer, creating a whole host of originals and remixes, from the Moombahsoul tracks included on David Heartbreak’s compilation, to ‘Quick Money feat. Jahdan Blakkamoore’, that beautifully keeps intact the sentiments of its sample: Amadou & Mariam’s ‘Sabali’. Of course, Theory is also a banging DJ, and here he dips through dancehall, moombahton, funky, ending up on a high energy soca tip.
Wrongtom »Nineties Trample«
For the second volume of the Brainer mix series we’ve looked a little closer to home and hooked up with South London DJ and producer Wrongtom. Wrongtom was the natural first choice for our second mix; renowned for his vast, genreless approach to music, we knew whatever he produced would be an awesome surprise. And we like good surprises at Brainer. The result: 45 minutes of ’90s dancehall crafted equally for dingy, sweaty underground clubs or BBQs in the sun. Get that ass shaking and let the summer roll on.
