In the midst of studying for final exams? Have a long drive or lengthy flight planned for summer break? Or are you simply searching for something quality to play with no interruptions? The answer often comes in the form of a DJ Mix, and Project FILO’s “Mix 1” checks all the necessary boxes. Teaming up with CreateSafe, the mix falls under their BLAST partnership with Apple Music, which “pushes forth initiatives that appropriately pay both DJs and their featured artists for their creations.” Mix 1 was specifically remixed by fellow Project FILO artist AVerma, with included songs from every music artist on the roster. Aside from FILO representation, Mix 1 contains tracks from popular artists + producers such as Drake, Smino, Bari, Murda Beatz, The Kount, KennyBeatz, and more. Similar to the appeal of a Soulection radio session, or OVO sound radio release, Mix 1 includes well-timed transitions for an overall sonically pleasing vibe. With a multitude of genres to offer (hip-hop, rap, trap, R&B, Lo-fi, neo-soul, jazz, etc.), “Mix 1” is only the beginning of a brand new series with eclectic sounds from some of the most talented artists you’ve never heard of; occasionally blended with your favorites for fresh variety. The serene beachy cover art photo was shot by creative Lauren Washington, with graphic edit support from AVerma & MC Blue Matter. With mix 2 planned for (early) summer, one interested fan can purchase an exclusive NFT with unlockable mp3 + early access, as well as curation opportunity of the next offering.
