Hyp 085 is as an influences mix assembed by Mark Gurney and James Bliss, the the founders of 2nd Drop Records, mixed together with label affiliates and family. It blends a classic selection of hip-hop, dub and reggae with modern bass music and a whole host of unreleased and forthcoming material from the imprint. Fresh cuts come from South London Ordnance, Pedestrian, Happa and Youandewan, giving us an exclusive insight into 2nd Drop Records movements over the coming months.
This mix really does span years of musical culture, and all manner of genres; what unifies the selection is a dark, rugged mood, exemplary of the label’s ethos. A real pleasure on the ears this one, grab it while it’s hot!
