White T's White Belts - THIS FRIDAY!!!
Lo-Fi Social Club
1825 N. Charles St.
Baltimore, MD 21201
Named after their own independent record label and production house, Emynd & Bo Bliz’s Crossfaded Bacon 2008 Mix” is a double disc mix E&B prepared before hitting up SXSW this year for the Flamin Hotz showcase in Austin, Texas. Each mix is a tightly-wound, inte nse, listenable journey that demonstrates each of Emynd & Bo Bliz’s personal tastes, production, and DJing abilities. Emynd’s mix starts off with some lesser known New Orleans Bounce music (including his NOLA Bounce remix of the South Rakkas Crew “Mad Again” which will be released on Mad Decent later this year) and then steadily progresses through some Hyphy, some up-tempo, breakbeat-heavy old-school rap, switching up rather dramatically to explore some House before finally progressing into Baltimore Club and Philly Party music (most of which is self-produced). The mixtape focuses on Emynd’s production abilities and showcases several tracks that will be released this year on Mad Decent, Flamin Hotz, and independently on Crossfaded Bacon Records.
Bo Bliz describes his mix simply enough as “a mix full of songs I like to listen to.” Chock full of Philly rap, Dirty South anthems, Dancehall, and Soul and R&B classics, Bliz’s mix is a very listenable exploration of his far reaching personal tastes. While several of these tracks are club staples that never get old, Bo didn’t forget to include some rare and exclusive tracks you’ve likely never heard before, as well as several songs that he himself produced.
