Max Le Daron's 'It's An Afrobeats Ting' Mixtape

Belgian producer Max Le Daron premieres 'It's An Afrobeats Ting' mixtape, an excursion into current beats from Nigeria, Ghana, & more.


Brussels-based producer & DJ Max Le Daron comes through with the hour-long It's An Afrobeats Ting mixtape, a bustling excursion into current beats from Nigeria, Ghana, Mozambique, Namibia, Angola, South Africa, Côte d'Ivoire, Portugal, Holland and Belgium. The high-octane mix features selections from the likes of Davido, Uhuru, Skales, Yemi Alade, and Kcee, as well as an unreleased track from Le Daron. It showcases the afro-pop and afro-house influences in Le Daron's production work, a lighter side to his Sin Logba output with Burkinabé rapper Joey Le Soldat. Apart from producing, Le Daron's also got his own label Lowup Records, which he runs alongside a self-described "collective of bass addicts" that include Jay Jackson, DJ Mellow, Excyta, Jiwo and Mr Orange (we recently featured Lowup producer Jabo).
