Not only is Seattle’s own Keyboard Kid the Basedgod’s main producer (a feat in its own right), but an ever improving DJ as well. In March, we saw him join forces with DJ Darwin to craft the “808’s and Space” mix and it looks like he’s collaborated with the Mad Rad representative once again. The two are featured in this week’s Mixmag’s Mix of the Week — quite an honor. If I had to guess, Darwin handles most of the mixing while KK takes on song selection. I could be wrong though. Like “808’s and Space”, the mix features a mixture of KK originals and fuzzy, hip hop oriented bass tunes. The MΔRRI$ tune (“Different Girl”) is especially nice. Like everyone else (not a bad thing), Baauer appears in the mix. Dude is quickly making a name for himself. Stream and download below and find the tracklist after the jump.
#based martian Keyboard Kid and DJ Darwin, member of Seattle party rap crew Mad Rad, got together to deliver a mix in anticipation of their upcoming show at the New Museum in Brooklyn. The mix covers several of contemporary bass takes on hip hop anthems (Jaw Jamz “Mr. Me Too,” Obey City’s “Fuck That Wobble”) before delving into Keyboard Kid and Darwin originals. The Phoenix sampling “BURN ONE, PASS IT” shows up as does “God Devil.” Overall, the mix has impeccable song choice and the two artists more than adequately handle themselves behind the decks. Here’s what they have to say about the mix.
808’s & Space is a handful of original productions, remixes and tunes me and my lil broKeyboard Kid have been feeling of late. Its also a small chunk of the live mix/set will be performing at The New Museum this Friday in NYC. Hyped to also be playing an after party at Santos Party House to wrap the night up.

If you’re around NYC on Friday, you would be remiss to miss (see what I did there?) out on this great event.
