The UK’s number one mixtape DJ is back once again. Hot on the heels of Tricksta’s last ‘UK only’ mixtape ‘The Urban Shop Mix’, comes Part Two to the success ‘National Anthems Mixtape’ that he dropped last summer. Once again it features the cream of the crop including some unreleased material by the likes of Akala, Conman, Late, Reveal, Baby Blue, Big Wayne, Swift It Major, Mr. Ti2bs and Size8 from Vicious Circle, as well as contributions from the likes of Sway, Klashnekoff, MD7, Mike GLC, Kyza, Lowkey, Alex Blood and Def1.
Tricksta’s back with a yet another new mixtape series. As many of you might already know Tricksta has just been made the official UK DJ for the East Coast crew ‘Team AFFicial’ as well as running the successful UK record label Wolftown Recordings. Here Tricksta simply gets one MC from Team AFF and one MC from Wolftown and then gets it popping.
The story of how Late & Lil Tec come to do this mixtape is a sad one. For those deep Wolftown fans you'll have probably heard of Lil Tec spit on 'The Thug & The Villain' on Late's 'Villainous One' release a few years back. This collobo was hooked up by the late great American mixtape genius Big Gee Damme who sadly passed away just after mixing his mix for Wolftown entitled 'The Empire Strikes Back'.
Without a shadow of a doubt Late & Tricksta are the UK’s number one mixtape DJ’s. Between them they have worked with the likes of Chamillionaire, Papoose, Red Café, Geolani and the legendary K-Rino. Here they return with another excellently mixed CD from Brooklyn’s ‘next to blow’ St. Laz.
More evidence of Team AFF Europe doing big things. Here we see Ophax & Tricksta team up for a nice UK / USA mix that really hits the spot. Ophax gets the ball rolling nicely with some killer cuts from Nativity, as well as some killer bars from some underground cats such as Billz, D-Dash, Big Skeem, Switch and The League.
Following on from Late's superb first volume hosted by Chamillionaire, Late continues to represent the 'Lone Star State' once more, this time with a collection of twenty eight tracks in the mix hosted by Trae from Rap-A-Lot Records and ABN. There's a great deal of great music on this mixtape and all starts with Hawk's 'H Town Stomp' anthem followed by Trae's single 'Swang' which features Fat Pat and Hawk.
This summer sees the release of a long anticipated new mix from the Brazilian maestro that is..DJ Marky. Recorded live during the recent DJ Marky & Friends event tour of 2006, Innerground Records in association with Drum & Bass Arena are pleased to bring you DJ Marky Live.
It’s no secret that UK DJ’s & CEO’s of Wolftown ‘Late & Tricksta’ are big fans of everything SPC. If you look back in the history you’ll see that Late & K-Rino collaborated on a Tricksta produced beat back in 2002 with the now classic ‘Cold World’ track from Late’s ‘International Rhyme Spittin EP’.
Rising star Ny appeared on the BBC World Service show ‘The Beat’ today, with guest host Mista Jam.
