The Bangerz Release ‘Future So Bright’ Summer Mixtape

In Clubs, Culture

My pick for mix-of-the-week is an easy one: Future So Bright by South Bay beatsmiths/DJs Goldenchyld and G-Wrex both of The Bangerz.  It kills, delivering warm vibes with propulsive bass to your face.  I took a quick second to grab some quotes from the gentlemen behind it.  According to them:  “The goal was to create a summer soundtrack with songs that wouldn’t age too quickly.”

Tell folks about the mix, what went into this mixtape, and why.
“The opening track “Rad Anthem” is a song by our friends from Los Angeles, Rad Omen. We also included tracks from Breakbot, Shazam, Dogg Master, and Free School, which Replay of the Bangerz is also a member of.  We just wanted to put something out that was way left of what we normally do.

Explain how this compares to your other releases.
We felt like the Bangerz as a whole is always putting things out that are very aggressive sounding, bass heavy, and electro-hip-hop-ish. With this one we wanted to create a different vibe. Something a little more relaxed, and something everyone can enjoy for the summer.  So while most of the songs may be unfamiliar, the quality is there and will remain a timeless piece of work.

What’s after this?
The Bangerz as a whole are working on finishing up a new EP, and we’re always working on new mixes, remixes, parties, events and what not. You can check out G-Wrex on 3rd Fridays at Bruno’s SF, and Goldenchyld every Friday night at Myth.
