If you have seen the lineups of any local shows recently, you may have noticed Brockton producer LoLoTheGod credited as one of the DJs for the event – a venture of this multitalented creative that is definitely proving itself to be a power move as of yet. Today, to further solidify his tastemaking skills while giving the streets something to keep on repeat for the weeks to come, LoLo just released his first mix titled “Vitality”.
Consistently supplying banger after banger with seamless transitions to smooth things over, this mix includes some of our favorites songs of today, both mainstream and local, while achieving a perfect mix of the two. “Vitality”s high energy approach and infectious style is most definitely indicative of the heat that LoLo has in store, and although he hasn’t specified anything new coming soon, be sure to look out for more from one of Brockton’s most promising young talents as we round the corner into the new year. Something tells me that this is just the beginning.

This past summer, in a successful attempt to transport listeners to a distant place musically, Boston artists Durkin and Maka blessed us with a 5-song EP titled Another Island. Rich with intoxicating styles and tropical sounds, the project most certainly achieved its purpose, soundtracking the summer with radiating energy and a sharp ear for eccentric sounds to fuel the warm energy throughout.
Today, Durkin and Maka are back to revisit their joint EP with the official “Another Island Mix”, meant to show fans some of the music that the two young talents were listening to during the creation of the project. It certainly puts things in perspective in terms of the headspace that the dynamic duo were able to make such a tropical masterpiece out of, and arriving to us via Bodega Pirate Radio, this mix will certainly make its rounds as a thoroughly-selected collection of songs to use whenever you need to transport out of Boston’s cold winters into a tropical getaway.
It’s interesting to hear the inspiration behind such a unique project, and I highly recommend clicking play on the “Another Island Mix” below to further the listening experience next time you choose to revisit the EP. Durkin and Maka are a duo that refuse to be ignored, so don’t sleep.
