Series of early 80s themed mega-mixes including one by blog favorite, DJ ADA.
Yes, Yes, Y'ALL! And we're back! CrayonBeats Presents: "Issa Throwback" is the 9TH volume in our compilation mix series. What's special about this mixtape, is that it's also the FIRST in our new Magazine x Mixtape combinations (mag.crayonbeats.com, for issue 8). That means that with each of our compilations from here on out, there will be a corresponding, inclusive magazine issue released where you can get to know the artists featured via special interviews. This album/issue is themed after the 1980s (with a little bit of 90s/00s sprinkled here and there)!
We put out an open-call on Instagram for music makers of all kinds to create a brand new track inspired by a song that was released during the year they were born, and the result is what you have here: 14 super dope, unique and talented artists coming together, for 9 songs) to make this "throwback" compilation one of our favorites to date. We hope you feel the same way!
