Mixpak Record’s knack for unexpected collaborations might be one of its greatest strengths as a label, from Dre Skull and Vybz Kartel’s recent dancehall crossover album to even stranger pairings such as Dam Funk + Lil Scrappy grooving together on the same track.
Now, fresh off his latest “Rapper Turned Singer” EP on Mixpak, Andy Petr is a producer who’s in tune with this collaborative mindset. The first installment of this collaborative impulse comes in a set of free Mixpak EPs of raw material – first up is this eight track EP brimming with lots of noteable stuff: Synth lines to cause heart palpatations, hazy, almost-placeable hip hop vocals dragged out overtop the tracks, and maybe most importantly, several collaborations with weed-obsessed genius Dro Carey.
Also very much worth your time: a Mixpak interview with Petr himself, in the digital flesh! Don’t sleep.
