Rapture 4D – Guest Mix for Meanstreets (Rinse FM)
Head honcho at Plasma Abuse, a record label which champions the neo-grime and wave genres, Rapture 4D took over Rinse FM for 30 minutes of square wave annihilation. This mix is packed with razor-sharp melodies, brutal grime hits and slick flows from your favourite grime MCs, making for an exciting glimpse into where the Scottish DJ and producer aims to take things this year.
MF DOOM – Mixed by KeiyaA
Paying homage to the late, great lyricist MF DOOM, who sadly passed last year, Chicago RnB singer and producer, KeiyaA, has created a stellar mix for Crack Magazine highlighting the legend’s best. This mix clocks in at just over 2-hours and features “personal favourites, new edits and reference tracks together into a vivid tribute to one of the greatest of all time.”
Big Alf – Bongo Club Residency Mix
Taking the reins for Bongo Club’s resident mix series, Edinburgh-based DJ, Big Alf, laid down just over 45 minutes of progressive club jams. Expect grime, wave, dubstep, UKG and more, featuring tracks from Real Tears, Pholo, Moscow Legend, Grobbie and others. Want to hear more from Big Alf? Then be sure to check out his monthly show on Mode FM which is available via Mixcloud and Apple Podcasts. Last year, Big Alf graced us all with his Lockdown mix series on YouTube which saw him perform a number of live streams alongside some exciting DJs and producers.
