We thought we’d put a mix together highlighting some of the 2021 Boston Music Award Nominees. There’s always a lot of commentary around the awards, but one thing is true – It’s a good time to get familiar with some new music! Maybe you know all these artists already, or maybe there’s a few new names – either way, hearing them all in one mix really shows just how much talent is bubbling in the scene right now.
Regardless of who made this list or that, anyone who made music this year should be proud of themselves. It takes a lot to express yourself with all that’s going on, and nothing about the last few years has been easy. We’re happy you’re here & happy you’re creating. What’d Drake say? There’s no awards for that…
REWIIIIIIIND – This week’s mix features new music from a number of artists who may or may not be on your radar, as well as a replay of DJ Deadeye‘s classic #LFODMix from the top of 2020. We recorded a podcast with him as well, which is full of gems for upcoming DJs. Press play below!
If you missed DJ BeanZ mix last week, you’re going to want to run that back next.
Another 🔥🔥🔥 guest mix, this time from DJ BeanZ! Bars, bars bars… the Empress of the Underground lived up to her name, hitting us with a heavy dose of pure hip-hop. It’s a good thing we record our mixes, because the rewind button is quite necessary this time around. A lot of “wait, did he just say…”
We’ve been on quite the run with #LFODMixes in 2020 – If you missed Deejay Dex, he just took us on a dope tour of the Boston hip-hop scene. Highly recommended listening. We also dropped our annual cypher last week, which we powered with our mobile studio. Basically, if you’re new here you’ve got plenty to catch up on. Welcome!
We were at Hoop-Hop this weekend with the mobile stu – First time at an event & it went well! Solar panels were pulling over 400 watts as we powered the DJ booth & then we hosted our cypher as well. Huge shoutout to Bakari JB & everyone involved in making this year another success.
We’ve got the audio from our cypher in this week’s mix, along with some new Boston hip-hop and a few West Coast artists we met out in LA. Seems like we’ll be traveling quite a bit going forward. Got somewhere you want us to pull up?
Stay tuned for the cypher videos and be sure to run last week’s #LFODMix from Deejay Dex back if you haven’t yet. We’ll be live again next Tuesday at 10pm, both streaming right here and on 91.5FM in Boston.

REWIND! We’re swinging the spotlight back to one of our guests from last year, Rilla Force. He is the originator of RNBDM, a great guy, and a damn good DJ as well. We’ve got a few of our own selections leading off the show before he takes it away. Big week for Boston hip-hop!
Most of these records reached us via submissions or word of mouth, so if there’s someone we need to get in the mix, let us know! Comments work or Twitter/Instagram.
