DJ Mafioso of Atlanta
Brings Mixtape Heat
8/25/04 - LatinRapper.com news
Atlanta's DJ Mafioso
continues to build a buzz with his latest offering, La
Bodega Vol. Dos.
Volume 2 is a double CD
filled with certified bangers, remixes and freestyles from
a cast of talented Atlanta artists, as well as other MCs
from New York to Puerto Rico.
Mafioso is already a familiar name throughout ATL, serving
both as the official DJ to Binkis Recs and running his own
production company, Needledrop Productions.
Volume 2 features tracks from MCs Rubix, Ekundayo, Phife Dawg
and remixes of Timbaland and Missy Elliot tracks. Latin MCs
include Siete Nueve of Puerto Rico, Profeta, Hector and Ozlo.
When asked about the difference between La Bodega Vol. 1 and
2, Mafioso replies: "The second one features more original
production, whereas Vol 1 was me actually mixing; just two
turntables and what I was recording on, my Pro Tools."
Although Mafioso had some of his own beats on Volume 2,
listeners can expect a lot more original production on the his
latest release, a more hands-on mixtape. "I featured a lot
more artists, and I had a lot more original beats and music,"
states Mafioso, "whereas La Bodega 1 was more like a demo for
DJ Mafioso, 2 was more like a demo for all of Atlanta, from
the graphic designers who did the cover, down to producers and
MCs and singers."
Mafioso isn't touring with Binkis Recs at the moment as
individual members are busy in the studio working on their
respective solo projects and developing the follow up to the
latest Binkis LP. Mafioso already has plans for the follow up
of Volume Dos and other forthcoming projects.
