You may know Nappy as one of the most enthusiastic pieces of the DAD puzzle (and true bass music connoisseur), but we're not sure if you're up on Disc Jockey Nappy, the DJ/refixer/producer side of Nappy's chamber. When he says he's been around for a while, that's no fluff. He's been in the game for the last 15 years, doing everything from DJing hip-hop on Princeton University's WPRB 103.3 FM (as well as learning the flipside of the music industry as an intern with Def Jam, including being on the road with the "Def Jam Vendetta" tour) to rubbing elbows with the thriving dance music scene in Philadelphia, back when Diplo was getting the Hollertronix name up. He was the innovator of "thugstep," the sound of rap music and bass music colliding, with a number of his refixes getting play worldwide, including by Coki on Kiss FM. He's spun guest mixes on Sirius XM's Shade45, and has been discovering new acts before they become household names.

We say all of that to say that Nappy's pedigree as a DJ and selector of fine musics is official, and for the Fourth of July holiday week(end), he wanted to bring forth a special mix of bass music. We have a feeling you either won't know who some of these acts are, and if you do, you've possibly not heard these tracks. Nappy's keen ear for bombastic tracks is vital, and we're proud to have him putting on for DAD. Fire up your grills to the selection; this is that charcoal smell by the pool turnup. Be sure to peep those unreleased tracks on here. Massive shouts to Jaap on the artwork; check out his other pieces and hit him via Twitter for more of his work.
