Mixinâ€™ it up: Dre Skull
This weeks Mixin’ it up is from our boy Dre Skull. He took some time off from working on his followup 12″ with Juiceboxxx to make this mix for you all.
“This is a somewhat varied collection of music I enjoy. Though it wasn’t a guiding idea when I started this mix, I can hear a unifying theme of restrained simplicity in many of these tracks. As a producer, I find this compelling as it is a quality I strive for in my own work. If anyone’s lookin for tracks holla atcha boy!!!
