The Wildfire series highlights five mixes by DJs, producers and selectors in the DMV and Baltimore that are exceptional – both under and on the radar.
^ BALTI GURLS representative DJ Trillnatured delivered a mini-mix for the collective’s BLK LUV art show. There is no tracklist provided, so see how many 80’s and 90’s R&B, mid 2000’s soul and classic ballads you can recognize!
^ GALAXYBOYZ member Alienood420 put together a mix of instrumentals he’s been working on over the past year. Eerie chords and erratic synths make for a haunting, and danceable, listen.
^ D.C.’s DJ NativeSUN’s “Validation” is full of soulful tunes on any occasion. Watch the short film “A Native’s Sun” (TheSceneDMV, 27:57) and get hip to the movement he has been building with the fellow artists like DJ Underdog and the folks at Mousai House.
^ Producer extraoridnaire Jacob Marley put together an eclectic blend of tracks from Lil Jon to tek.lun, with a few of his own for good measure via Bombay Knox. Catch the Llamadon and GALAXY BOYZ member along with DJ Genie Friday night in Richmond, VA for the last stop on their #CrushTour.
^ CMPTVR CLVB’s Stclair Castro celebrates “nostalgia and vaporwave,” with syrupy takes on classic R&B jams.
