Wedidit founder Shlohmo has linked up with the guys over at Sneeze Magazine for a new mixtape fusing old and new schools of hip-hop together. For Tha Summer (Vol. XXVII) is the first ever mix music project hosted by the magazine, and it finds the LA artist creatively stitching together down-tempo samples from old Japanese and Korean soul records along with high-octane summer heaters from Young Thug, Soulja Boy, Future, Mobb Deep, Rae Sremmurd, 21 Savage, and Migos into a distinctly more lo-fi and low-key sound. The 25+ minute mix draws on the stylings of Dilla, Madlib, and Alchemist tapes of old – with these hip-hop legends forming Shlohmo’s musical taste and inspiration “to make beats in the first place.” Listen to the mixtape below.
Speaking on where you should listen to the mixtape, Shlohmo said, “Put it on the big screen at the BBQ. Put it on the radio while you driving with tacos on your lap. Put it on your phone while you sleepin under that tree. Big heat wave lounge style music with a plate and a red cup in hand. This one’s for ‘tha summer.’ Shouts out to ‘Sneeze Mag’ for the continuous love. More to come soon…” Revisit his remix of Drake’s “Marvin’s Room” below.
