Mixtape Monday: SassyBlack, Stereo Champions, Tuxedo & Spiffler Bring Heat
On this day where we honor the life + legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., this week’s Mixtape Monday boasts a truly eclectic collection of sets + sounds, including a mashup of Run The Jewels and DJ Shadow from DJ Skarface and an airtight hip-hop offering fro MarcNfinit from Washington, D.C.’s own Stereo Champions. The one + only Antal Heitlager serves up a proper primer on South African jazz, while Steve Spiffler colors outside the lines with a tape dedicated to Chicago’s own Lil’ Chano from the 79th, better known as Grammy-nominated Chance The Rapper. Last, but certainly, not least — our personal fave, SassyBlack, debuts the first in a new series of pop-inspired beat tapes, made exclusively of N’SYNC samples.
Each of these contributions will make your ears holler, “Free at last, free at last,” and are most definitely worth a repeat listen. Dig in + enjoy!
