SXSW Translation Event Mix Part 1

2

Back in March (literally 3 days before SXSW started), we were commissioned by Translation (you know, that little advertising company started by Jay-Z) for a 5 hour live mix for their exclusive cocktail party honoring Steve Stoute & Nas (check out their interview here).  Curating an eclectic mix of music for a diverse crowd of SXSW performers and attendees alike is not for the faint of heart, but we set out to do just that with a flowing soundtrack of hip hop, indie, classics, electro, and even a splash of dubstep.

With summer upon us, road trips and beach outings imminent, this is the perfect time to add new music to your iPods and playlists.  We are proud to present the first part (of 4) for your listening pleasures.
