SILENT SELECTOR VOL. 6: MZA
First and foremost, a huge thank you to the Mellow Orange fam, especially to my brothers Freddie Joachim & Mark Cruz aka Question for this wonderful opportunity. It's been a minute since I've put out an actual mix, so it really feels good to get back to it, especially now summer is here in Los Angeles.
While growing up in the 80s & 90s most of my influences have been predicated around the culture of Hip-Hop, Funk, Disco, Jazz, Soul & all things groovy. I've been DJing and collecting records for a very long time now and like most DJs, one of the things I take pride in is making quality mixtapes. I guess the reason for that is that, I've always love the art of mixing as a DJ, one of my main trade mark was the fearless boundary of mixing and blending all type of genres cohesively.
For this mix I wanted to go with an uptempo approach. I've added variety uptempo goodies such as some nu-disco, funky soul remixes, some uk gems and of course hip-hop. The mix features some of the illest joints from my favorite producers today: Moods, Snakehips, Tryezz, Sam Irl, Question, Ohmega Watts Captain Supernova, Toro Y Moi, + more. This one goes out to the movers, groovers and shakers!
