Our good friends Thomas, Marco, Deniz, Tommy & Franz released a mixtape series due to their club vacation in Hvar Croatia from July 25th to July 31st. If you happen to be around there join and party with them. Tickets are still available on Juicy Bay Croatia. Listen, love and share it with your pals.
As you know, we are great fans of mixtapes here at chrome music!
So that being said, here is a great live mix of rare soul and funk breaks by DJ Matthew Africa. I stumbled upon this via dear friend and regular YUM YUM guest DJ Eleven.[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/Plays_Seven_Inches.mp3]

chromemusics favourite rapper right about now, has to be XV with already a mean bunch of stellar tunes under his belly but still underrated – we need to change that. Seriously, lyricwise this dude stole summer with his latest mixtape. In anticiption of his ‘official’ EP release “Awesome” on June 26th he released this Mixtape as a (i guess) teaser, you know how it goes… but this ones real hot and makes all the other mixtapes and pre-releases pale in comparison. guys like B.o.B, Schoolboy Q, Emilio Rojas, Slim The Mobster give him a little assistence on the mic. i’m putting this on right now and am listening to it.. again and again… DOWNLOAD the FULL MIXTAPE here.
More XV on chromemusic and definitely much more coming and also i am gonna post all his old material, almost everythings postworthy.
As usual, here are a couple of my favourites:[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/02-XV-Andy_Warhol_Feat_Slim_The_Mobster_Prod_By_The_Awesome_Sound.mp3]

PSPSPSPSPSPSPSPS – Other cats normally put all those tunes on their Mixtapes that don’t make it on their Albums. XV got tunes that didn’t make it on his Mixtape! And its one of th sweetest tunes out there.
Chromemusic turns 7 today! And we are having a celebration tonight for our family & friends and i guess we are gonna have too much fun like Charlie Murphy (facebook addicts go here). And here, are as promised, 7 new mixtapes by most of our djs (act. 8), of course some are still missing but who cares. And we just realized like 3 days ago that this weeknds our 7th anniversary with the website, so thanks to everyone involved for doing this on such short notice, inbetween traveling, working, love affairs, studying, break ups, moving houses and what not. The results are amazing. Schowi even did his mixtape on a train! And i had to lend a helping hand (recording wise) to some of our guys so there was zero time for a mix of mine, but i just put this one (YUM YUM The Dude Mix) online last week so no complaining k? You are gonna like what our guys had to offer. PS We are gonna do this again and way more often, cause its just too much fun!!! Proud of my people right here, aaaand as always LISTEN, LOVE & DOWNLOAD[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/the-lil-dude-Mix-by-Deniz-D-nice.mp3]
