MAKJ Delivers Open-Format Mix for ‘Diplo and Friends’

MAKJ at Stardium Festival in Seoul, South Korea on July 4. (WO2YA)
About a month ago, we sat down with MAKJ to talk about his background and love for open-format DJing. The west coast native lived up to his words, though, by dropping a versatile mix for his debut on BBC Radio 1Xtra’s “Diplo and Friends” last night.
With over 40 tracks from various genres and eras, MAK’s mix is quite a bit different from the big room and electro house sets that many fans know him for. In fact, his selection includes more hip-hop than dance music.
“This is a huge hodgepodge of my past and current plethora of music,” MAK said when introducing himself on the show. Indeed, with everything from Fetty Wap and Damian Marley to Alesso and Beck, MAK’s mix has a little something for everyone.
Oh, and it also includes unreleased material from DJ Snake, Deorro, and Timmy Trumpet.
