Guest Mix #23: XL MIDDLETON (California)

Soul & Funk

Brand new edition in our great Guest Mix series following recent editions from Bolts, Dr. Kwest, Abjo, Waxist, Phillie P and others. This one comes from  XL MIDDLETON who has been a  force on the West Coast since the early 2000’s when it comes to keeping the area’s Funk legacy alive and well. His productions & selections definitely pay homage to the classic G-Funk vibe while making the sound progress. One foot in the old, one foot in the new… which is actually what he tried to represent with this great mix!

From XL Middleton: “Basically with this mix I was trying to show the connection between today’s modern funk sound and the 90’s g-funk sound – to show how you can have Domino and Dru Down on the same mix as Dam Funk & Toro Y Moi and it makes perfect sense! Hope you like!”
