I wanted to launch a series of mini mixes and Moody J (aka Josh Coleman) was the clear first choice. He put on one of the best DJ sets I saw this summer. Moody J’s track selection, fusion of different styles of dance music and mixing are top quality. He is a member of the Kansas City-based collective Underground Frequencies. It’s a great honor to present Moody J’s “Beast It” mini mix.

Fixed On You – Hotel Garuda (Taiki Nulight Remix)

Mercury – Jack Beats

Open Your Mind – Volac

Codeine Dreams – BIJOU

Fire – Cazztek & Asdek 

Joe Dirty – Worthy

Finesse – Dillon Nathaniel & Toasty Ray
