donsta_14 The ‘Twelve 12s’ series is back once again for the fourteenth instalment: this time we head east for another good friend of Southern Hospitality – all the way from Tokyo, Japan we present – Donsta! For those of you who aren't from Japan – Donsta is one part of the Threepee boys – a Tokyo collective of DJs who run the Threepee Times blog and all regularly appear on nights within the Tokyo club scene. I was lucky enough to get invited to DJ with them recently at their excellent regular residency 'Threepee Party' at the revered 'Organ Bar' deep in the centre of Shibuya. Donsta is a guy who knows good music: when he's not releasing his mixtapes from his 'Boom & Zoom' series – he's over in ATL interviewing artists and educating Japanese audiences about all things southern rap! As a DJ, Donsta plays everything from the latest southern hip-hop bangers, UK grime to dubstep and party bangers – but as you can see from the impressive lineup of 12s he has on this mix – Donsta clearly knows his classics! When myself and Rob saw the tracklist – we knew it would be good – a nice change of pace to the other mixes we've had – it's great to hear underground classics like Erule's incredible and very slept on – 'Listen Up' alongside our personal favourites – Oukast's Players Ball (extended version)' and Digital Undergounds 'Wussup With The Luv' (check 2pac's verse!). After listening to this mix – it really got me digging through my crates again! – great stuff! Enjoy! In case you missed the first thirteen instalments from myself (Rob), Superix, James Lebens, DJ Ayres, DJ Dub, DJ Hudson, Matt Evans, Spin Doctor, Matthew Africa, Cosmo Baker, DJ Eleven, Big Jacks & Drew Huge – you can still catch them here and watch out for another ‘Twelve 12s coming very soon… For tracklisting and running order – see the cover DOWNLOAD IT HERE
