Hysterics – Crack Magazine
Girl Unit stepped into the Crack Magazine mix this month under his Hysterics alias. This marks the second mix for Night Slugs’ residency with the Crack Mag and features a selection of stripped-back club cuts and hypnotic rhythms. The tracklist for the mix is available here and features music from Lil Silva, LSDXOXO, Charli XCX, Yaeji and of course Hysterics himself amongst others.
Nina Las Vegas – DJ Mag
Australian radio host, DJ and producer, Nina Las Vegas, delivered the latest in DJ Mags On Cue mix series. The hour-long mix blends dancehall, tribal house and techno with lots of forward-thinking club and hip-hop edits thrown in for good measure. Earlier this month the artist released a brand new track, ‘Impossible’ ft. Thai Chi Rosé, via NLV Records which is definitely worth adding to your playlist and DJ sets.
Chams – DUMMY MAG
This month, Parisian producer Chams came through with a blistering mix of fractured melodic rap instrumentals, wave, grime and more for DUMMY MAG. Featuring an excellent selection of known and mystery tracks from himself alongside the likes of TNGHT, Glacci, S-Type, Umru, Kai Whiston and more, Chams’ DUMMY mix is certainly an essential listen this month for hip-hop and trap fans.
