My collabo mixtape with the amazing Carrie Wilds has just been released for free download on Mishka Records. 13 tracks with styles on styles on styles, beats curated by yours truly aka Young Gazpacho aka Shiftopolis 5000. Grab the full tape HERE and stream below.
Peep some solid crowd footage from my recent set at The Ogden Theater in Denver w/ Cookie Monsta. Shouts to Sub.Mission Dubstep for making it happen!
Then get to know the real me. Here’s a day in my life:
My official statement on the routine:
“This is a routine I put together for my recent appearance on the legendary Rinse FM (big shouts to DJ Wonder for having me on!). It’s meant to show my softer side. Yes, you may know me for my manly feats of strength and untapped primal aggression on delicatessen waiting lines. When you think Shiftee, you probably think of a brute force who opens jars, lifts heavy boxes, and attends the gym regularly (big shouts to my trainer Sergi for keeping me toned!). But there’s more to me. I take long walks on the beach. I gaze wistfully at setting suns and old people. I once watched a trailer for The Notebook and felt something deep inside (it was indigestion, but still). Please watch the following video, and get to know the real me. – Forever Yours, Shiftee”
Apologies to my friends, family, and fans. I’m so embarrassed.
I just dropped an exclusive mix for my good buddies over at Deepsession, one of the premiere parties, electronic music blogs, and new record labels in Italy. I had the pleasure of playing their Christmas party in 2010, and trust me, they’ve got it going on.

When Mishka tapped me to be Vol. XXIII of their prestigious Keep Watch mix series, I tapped them back in an accepting manner because I’m a gentleman who believes in Hammurabi’s Code. Past artists in the series have included Major Lazer, Skream, Rusko, Crookers, 12th Planet, Congorock, Craze, Klever, and more, so I knew I couldn’t just twiddle my fingers on this one. I had to spend my time instead making a good mix.
Here’s my official statement on the end result: “”No crazy concept here (my sounds of the sea compilation will have to wait). I simply wanted to feature a bunch of tracks I’m feeling right now, and put them together in an interesting, scratch-happy way. Some of the tunes are old, some are recent, some are unreleased, some are so new Kanye don’t even know about ‘em. One of them actually is Kanye. In any case, the listener will experience an eclectic array of mostly dubstep and grime. There will be twists, there will be turns, and of course, there will be scratching.”

An excerpt: “The selections are meant to reflect Dubstep’s ongoing maturation and continuous expansion. This is a mix to which you don’t have to fight your grandmother. I suggest playing her the mix over a bowl of Matzoh ball soup and a cup of hot cocoa…I hope you’ll find a pleasing smorgasbord of slightly adult music mixed with very adult issues. Love, death, retirement, erectile dysfunction, self-doubt, and self-appreciation: it’s all there.”
