There are still people that don’t realize that Daniel Disaster is moving beyond trap music.  Or that he’s playing some of the most diverse DJ sets of any touring DJ.  Or that he’s got his hands in designing clothing for Fresh.I.Am and Adidas.  Or that he’s set on building an artistic community.  Or that he’s one half of VAVLT BOYZ with BLKKMORRIS.  Or that they’ve been working together in Atlanta for years.  People still pin him as the “trap ambassador” and the face of Heroes x Villains, and they’re selling him short.

This mix for THUMP is a collaborative release with Overthrow and Lil Death, and we’re laughing at the description.  It’s called “more than luxury trap.” But it’s a techno mix, and has nothing to do with trap at all.  They actually talk about having to Google the duo they were premiering, too, which is just comedy.  One would think that the site that “cherry-picked” someone for a mix might actually know why the act is important, but what do I know?

In any case, Lil Death and Overthrow have been in bed with both BLKKMORRIS and Heroes x Villains for years, and it’s lovely to see this artistic collaboration continue. It’s also equally amazing to see how the tastes of Atlanta’s premiere tastemakers are changing.  This mix is turbo, and the track selection is absolutely nuts.  The drop into Thugli’s remix of Drake’s “Worst Behavior” is the moment, in my opinion.  Ride out.

    I love how you talk shit about the Thump article but don’t even realize that Brian Sanhali should be Brian Sanhaji. High horse syndrome much?
