The Mixtape Vol. 34

Jump up for dutty riddims by the blud, Badmen

As a photographic retoucher at Superbalist, JP Brown puts in long hours Photoshopping our models and product to perfection. We’ve noticed that he’s always plugged in to his machine and bopping his head to what seems like a feverish beat, and when we found out that he’s actually mixing these beats himself, DnB break beats that we haven’t skanked to since Homegrown in the early 00s, we asked JP to craft us something bespoke to start our week off on the right note.

And he obliged!

What started off as a hobby “I had mates who were into DJing before me, so I taught myself and then got a few assists from them as well” is now a regular moonlighting gig with JP playing sets as Badmen at Fiction, Sideshow, Dragon Room and select outdoor festivals.

This summer JP will be hanging his toes over the nose while logging at surf spots along the Cape Peninsula, spending some time producing and playing a few day parties.
