In 2011, Red Bull Studios London released volume 1 of their Red Bull Studios Mixtape-series featuring an established producer taking on a mentor position to work with talented producers from the UK. The Red Bull Studios Mixtape will now return for a fourth time, with Patta Soundsystem’s own Deejay Abstract as curator in collaboration with Otterbox taking over the baton from Shadow Child and Red Bull Studios London. With his finger firmly on the pulse of the electronic and Hip-Hop music scenes, Dutch Red Bull Thre3style winner Abstract has guided young producer talents from all corners of the Netherlands to put their respective sounds on the map. With a mysterious message on Facebook, Deejay Abstract started his quest to find 9 young producer talents for the mixtape. With over 150 applications, the selection procedure wasn't an easy task, but Abstract managed to select 9 producers from various parts in The Netherlands to join him in the studio and help shape the Red Bull Studios Mixtape Vol. 4. Featured producers include Anik, DJ Hyperlink, Jeftuz, KnowVA, L33, Melle Jutte, Michael Miller, Singularis and Timo Naomi. After exclusively previewing Timo Naomi's “Hey Now”, Red Bull Studios and Abstract now proudly present the Red Bull Studios Mixtape Vol. 4. Listen in full below.
