State Mix: DJ D.O.G.

When we wanted a hip-hop mix for State, it was David O’Gara (aka DJ D.O.G.) who immediately sprang to mind. A key member of the Simi Crowns set-up, he’s a much sought after DJ on the circuit. Here’s what he came up with for us…

“I was inspired firstly by the exciting amount of hip-hop acts due to land here this summer. So to give a taster of what’s to come I’ve compiled some great live tracks from these artists. The proper way to get you hyped for a gig. Secondly I’ve been listening to a lot of new wave hip-hop recently so I felt obliged to select the tracks that affected me the most to make the track-list. Some ground breaking movements happening out there, you’ll get a sample in the mix. On top of all that, I threw in some of my favourite old skool tracks to round it off. Overall, it’s a mix for hip-hop heads of all tastes. Bring on summer 2015!”
