Today’s mixtape is a bit of a change. If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you might have figured out by now that I seriously enjoy musicians are blending and bending genres. I love it when an artist takes aspects from one type of music, and injects it into another. It’s one of the reasons that Andre Anjos of RAC is one of my all time favourite musicians. This mixtape below is a collection of five tracks that blur the lines between Electronic and Hip Hop. That’s right.
Two side notes on this one. Keep an eye on Popeska, a nineteen year old and coming producer from Atlanta. I’ve been following his work on SoundCloud for a while now, and he’s plays with a pretty versatile sound that will definitely be taking him places. It changes from track to track, but generally he has a hard style with intricate growls that could be compared to artists like Feed Me, but still keeps a level of catchy, melodic quality to each of his originals or remixes. Also, you might be asking, what is Mau5hax? It’s a new project that Deadmau5 tried out during Ultra in Miami. Basically five aspiring producers are chosen, and the entire Mau5trap crew help them hone their skills and collaborate for an entire day. Oh, and it’s all streamed live. Pretty amazing project and it was definitely worth tuning in for. I know this mixtape might not be for everyone, but the tracks are worth a listen if you enjoy either genre.
The only constant is change,

Finally Mord Fustang released a new EP. Last week his label dropped this out of the blue in the middle of the day and I almost let out a schoolgirl-esque squeal in the middle of lecture. Mord has done a bit of tweaking to his style and is definitely throwing in more bass to his sound. I honestly do like this EP, but it all becomes pretty repetitive. Each track is awesome but the second half is almost a perfect copy of the first. I hope to hear some pretty wicked remixes, bootlegs, and edits in the near future.
