AUDIO: SHIFT ALL-CITY MIX by RHETTMATIC, FREE THE ROBOTS, & PLANN B + SHIFT SAN FRANCISCO

Our very own Rhettmatic as well as his comrades Free The Robots & Plann B have released a special mix in honor of their Shift parties that they have been doing for the past 6 years in both  at The Crosby (OC) & Escala (LA). In the last month, they took their Shift parties on the road to Palm Springs, Las Vegas, & now San Francisco (this Friday, Sept. 4th).

unnamed-1

The good people at Okayplayer World Premiered the mix this morning!

“We tried to put together a mix that would sound exactly like a typical night inside Shift…basically an hour of heavy musical ADD. I think we nailed it.” That’s how Plann.B describes the new hour-long, three-part SHIFT All City mixtape, a joint venture that has him welding his talents to those of Free The Robots and DJ Rhettmatic. In 2009, the three DJs conspired to create a new enterprise that doled out hip-hop, soul, futuristic funk and electro in a format that pulled no punches and honored no idols; a beat music free for all lead only by their brainiac techniques. 6 years on, Shift is as vital as it’s ever been and has filled massive rooms alongside the likes of Dam Funk, J. Rocc, House Shoes, Soulection and more.

Summer 2015 has Rhettmatic, Plann.B and FTR taking their show up and down the West Coast, with shows booked in Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco and more. Below, Okayplayer very proudly presents a free new mix designed to be a “thank you” for all the support Shift has gotten from the scene. “This is exactly what a night at Shift might sound like,” Plann told us. “Enjoy this wild mishmash of boogie, disco, glitchy, experimental beats, breaks, future bass and hip hop.”
