RTDMIX001: Dev79

Photo credit: Heather Schwartz
We've been fans of Dev79's for a bit. I feel like we first spoke via MySpace, when Dev was looking to place a refix of Nappy's on a project he was putting together. Due to our shared interests (aka insane electronic beats with a hip-hop flavor), we've been in close contact, and while I've never actually met Dev IRL, he's always been a homey.

Dev's not only one of the heads behind critically-acclaimed imprints like Seclusiasis and Slit Jockey, but himself is a talented producer and DJ. There's something about his tracks like "Smoked Salt" that always seem to hit me at first...but upon repeat listens, really develop into tunes that hit me hard and keep my finger on the rewind button. Proper "high replay value" types of cuts.

It's been about three years since I secured an exclusive mix from Dev, and in this 33+ minute throwdown, he goes through an intoxicating array of Street Bass bangers. Not only do a few of his own slick productions make the mix, but he also drops heat from Sh?m, DJ Cable, the don Starkey, Conrank, El Carnicero, and many more. If you like your electronic beats with a tinge of hip-hop swagger, this is the mix you need.
