FIVE BORO BASS MIX + BASE!!! PARTY

base-alt4-copy-small

As you can tell from the above flyer, Macabee and I are spinning at Fontana’s this Saturday with the inimitable Voidstar. The aim is to play all types of crazy, bass-centric fire (hence the title).

Over the past few weeks we’ve put out some mixes to help promote and prepare for the gig, starting with Macabee’s The Scrubstep Mix (which set the bar pretty high) and continuing with two(!!) nasty “Base”-related mixes from Voidstar.

So to close it out, I put together this short (as in under 8 minute) mix combining the genre I’m most familiar with (hip hop) with one that I was probably the least familiar with (drum and bass). But with the help of my aforementioned counterparts, I’ve been steadily receiving a crash course in the best of Drum and Bass and all its correlating sub-genres. Recognizing the long standing link between itself and rap, I grabbed a bunch of New York anthems, made some remixes and blends and came up with this mix……
