Spin Control :: Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice Drops A New Mix For Summer 2021

I often find myself so busy these days with my numerous musical, film and blogging ventures (not to mention consistent gig schedule) that I often neglect the practice that got me where I am today : the mixtape.  Luckily for me (and hopefully for the masses), I found some time this weekend to get in a mix I’ve playfully titled a collection of songs artisanally blended in an aesthetically pleasing manner.  Hip-hop will always be my bread and butter, and it is certainly represented on here by the likes of Pop SmokeMIKETyler the Creator and Lil’ WaynePharrellKenny MasonIsaiah Rashad and Lil’ Uzi Vert, but I wanted to make sure that a wider spectrum of music got some shine, hence the inclusion of songs from Olivia RodrigoBillie EilishLeon BridgesThundercatAriana GrandeCautious ClayKAYTRANADA and many more.  If you find yourself trying to cool down on one of these warm summer evenings and think you’re in need of a soundtrack, reach for this mix!  Donate if you choose, download if you like, stream when you can and share as often as possible!
