DJ BRAKE back in the building. Dude dropped his mixtape and the beginning of the summer and it was one of the most downloaded mixes we had on the site. The dude has some cool things coming up including his Ahundredmagiclions Hip Hop project (which includes a release of his track Salad on Intellegenix soon), Frosh Week decimation in London Ontario and is the resident/namesake of the Brake it Down Sundays that is launching this Sunday @ Strangelove. Big TINGS for this man and a big mix for you. Dancefloor friendly, kinda catchy, something to get you going before you get gone.
