I just spent the last five days in sunny Miami for the Winter Music Shitshow and all I need to battle these intense warm weather withdrawals is this dope summertime mix from DJ Impulse. ”Sun In My Eyes” is some real, roll down the windows and let the warm breeze flow, kinda mix you’re gonna need to kick off the warm weather seasons.
I’m pretty sure Impulse had his summer toes out while he was makin’ this mix. ”Sun In My Eyes” coasts through a summertime stroll through some of the coolest tracks, from De La Soul, Mayer Hawthorne, Treasure Fingers, Marvin Gaye, and Solidisco. With genres ranging from electro, club, moombahton, hip hop, and disco, this one covers all the bases. ”Sun In My Eyes” is all about good vibes so make sure you’re collectin’ ‘em here!
Trust the homie! Impulse wouldn’t be puttin’ together just a random mix of tunes. He’s practically been DJing out of the womb. Not only has he opened and DJ’d for hip hop artists like Wutang, De La Soul, and Mos Def, but he also works for the Scratch DJ Academy and is affiliated with the Skratch Makaniks crew. He’s rockin’ with some of the coolest DJing skills I’ve seen and his broad knowledge of music is impeccable. Co-signed.

We haven’t seen any moombahton mixes for a while here on Mixtape Monday, and this one’s hot off the presses, so you might wanna let it cool off a bit. What we have here is “They Playin My Shit”, almost an hour of “hip hop-infused moombahton” curated by one of Arizona’s original gunslingaz, Pickster One.
“They Playin My Shit” includes remixes and edits from a lot of moombahtonistas you probably already know, like Diplo, Sazon Booya, and Skinny Friedman of the Philadelpyinz. Before moombahton, Pickster already had an extensive hip-hop DJ career under his belt. But Dave Nada had to change the game up and now it’s becoming mandatory for DJs to slow their set down to 108 bpm at some time during the night. With “They Playin My Shit”, Pickster is acknowledging the overlap of hip-hop with EDM’s newest genre, moombahton, as well as anticipating the fusion’s success on the Top 40 charts of the music industry. Once considered a gimmicky trend, moombahton is proving to be anything but. Dedicated moombahtonistas are putting in work to secure the genre’s spot as mainstay in EDM culture.
“They Playin My Shit” is one of those releases that serves as a perfect entry point for new fans of moombahton. It combines old school and new school hip-hop tracks, which everybody should know, with the many flavors of moombahton. There’s innovative takes on new school tracks, like the Long Jawns and Bobby la Beat remix of Kreayshawn’s “Gucci Gucci” and the Market Price remix of Kanye West and Jay Z’s “Otis”. Sprinkled within new school hits, you’ll hear revived versions of some songs you haven’t heard in a while, like A-Mac’s “Lemme See Ya Pop” and JWLS’ “DTF” remix of The Ying Yang Twins’ “Wait (The Whisper Song)”. While it deviates a bit from moombahton’s original format, “They Playin My Shit” is a fun mix that determines the staying power of moombahton as a mainstream entity.
Get you some.
