FACT Mix 237: Blaqstarr

FACT Mix 237: Blaqstarr

Playing tracks by

Boys Noize & Erol Alkan and DJ Irwan, Lil' Wayne .

Taking the reins for FACT mix 237 is Blaqstarr.

His self-styled mix – which he’s entitled The Ping Pong Effect – is an unashamedly frothy affair. Best known for his work with M.I.A., the DJ/producer/rapper/singer has been a fixture in the music scene of his Baltimore hometown since the early 2000s. Building tracks largely in the galloping B-more house style, he scored underground hits with tracks like ‘Get My Gun’ and ‘Jiggle It’ and was featured in the genre-defining Baltimore Club compilation series.

He did send us a tracklist for his mix, but it seems to bear little similarity to what’s actually on it, so we’ve left it out. At 25 minutes, it’s a brief but bracing workout, combining hyperactive Baltimore club gear with flashes of the more plaintive electronic hip-hop sound that Blaq’s been favouring of late. Irreverent and unpredictable, it’s the perfect accompaniment to the onset of sunshine.
