Days off? We don't take those. If we have to keep up with artists like Shiftee, that's the mantra we have to take. He's won two DMC championships, has taught at NYU, teaches at Dubspot, has a very regular tour schedule, and is one of the guys behind Hot Mom USA. Somehow he manages to not go insane, but when you're doing what you love, it can make things easier. Shiftee also gets props from us because he expertly blends his love of bass music with hip-hop; kindred spirit style. In the first DAD mix of 2014, we are proud to have Shiftee on the ones and twos, throwing down the kind of set that properly encapsulates what the fuck we're truly about when it comes to dance music. Material from Ganz, Danny Brown, DECiBEL, Hudson Mohawke, Flying Lotus, and Rustie find their way into this cosmic stew that Shiftee creates from scratch. Oh, and DECiBEL confirmed that the dub of his you hear in this, "Brake," can only be heard on the 'Net via this mix (as is the Shiftee & Rx bootleg of Danny Brown's "I Will"). You should have already seen the intro routine; now you have the full mix. We shouldn't have to tell you that it's time to turn up, right?
