In what is the first of what will become a signature mixtape series, 901Flava.com and Da Lionz Den Entertainment recently released a “mixtape” of local 901 area artists called 901 Mix vol.1. Featuring the mixing prowess of DJ Swagg, 901 Mix vol. 1 delivers 19 tracks of the different musical elements coming out of the Memphis area.
“Memphis has so much incredible talent just waiting to be heard but the avenues and opportunities to expose one’s music and artistry are few. We thought it (901 Mix vol. 1) would be the perfect way to help expose what’s coming out of the 901, music that might not get radio play in some situations” said Mr.KennyBONE, the producer of the project.
When asked how they put the project together, DJ Swagg had this to say about the creative process. “It was kinda easy. I was very familiar with the music that made the mixtape, most was already in my club rotation. so myself and KennyBONE went in the studio and just made it happen”.
We also asked DJ Swagg we can we look forward to on future volumes of the 901 MIX series. He responded that he’s most excited about the opportunity to break new artists. “There’s a whole new generation of artists out of Memphis I want to introduce. Guys like Young Douglass, Bino with Paper Route Empire, Kelly Barnes and Mugs-A-Million, so be on the lookout!
