Selections: Mixpak

Welcome back to Selections, a series of exclusive artist-curated Spotify playlists from those in the know.

First founded in 2009 by Dre Skull, Mixpak is an independent Brooklyn-based label that refuses to be defined by a single genre, helming experimental, underground and Dancehall sounds across the Caribbean and Brooklyn diaspora.

On Saturday (21 October), the label will set up shop for a showcase at the Skullcandy stage at Bristol’s Simple Things Festival – a multi-venue, multi-genre one-day takeover of the city. Recent signee Florentino will play alongside Dre Skull and Jubilee.

We’re excited to be hosting a playlist curated by the imprint which provides an essential introduction to their flagship acts. Cuts from Popcaan, Jubilee, Vybz Kartel, Murlo, Tifa, Sticky and a whole lot more. Soundtrack the countdown to Simple Things with the selections below.

Mixpak will be showcasing its artists at the Skullcandy Stage at Simple Things, Bristol, on 21 October.
