The Year of Diggi

With the release of his F64 for SBTV and the new mixtape hosted by the mixtape master DJ Ames; what better time to write about a man who has started 2010 stronger than any other.

Diggi

After many years of Underground appreciation both alone and as 1/2 of the Natural Born Spittaz, it seems as though Mystro is popping up here, there and everywhere these days. I personally have been following him for years; however I know people that have only just recently discovered one of the best MC’s this country has ever seen.

When I make a statement like that, it’s not something that should be taken lightly either, because there are some incredible lyricists out there right now. However; this man is pretty special in so many different aspects. His flow is second to none and I would go as far in saying that his lyrics are some of the best I’ve ever heard. He can do anything - from serious stuff (Rock This World) to 7 minute yearly reviews (UK Rap Up 2009) with time to throw in the odd spoof for good measure (Mess I Ever Had). Pretty unique, hey?

Now for the two things I mentioned earlier in the post; his F64 and the new mixtape. Honestly, amazing. Considering the lack of quality and thought that have gone into the majority of the recent F64’s, I was ecstatic to find that Example and Pro Green both have one in the works and that Mystro has gone and done the best yet: WATCH.

The mixtape is brilliant; treating us to old tracks, new tracks and a couple of exclusives - a must for any Mystro fan and perfect for anyone trying to get into this man’s music. DJ Ames provides the perfect host and it comes with some of my favourite Diggi tracks, including ‘Come Fly With Me’, ‘U Live & U Learn’ and the incredible re-working of my favourite Luda track, ‘Like Dat Potion’. Not much else needs to be said apart from, educate yourself by watching the F64 and downloading the mixtape (link below). Also; if you wanna support him, get onto iTunes and pur-chase the E.D.T. EP and look out for the Digmund Freud EP later on in the year, which is part of the lead up to the highly anticipated debut LP; Mystrogen.

“That’s why it’s time for Mys to really hit the Earth now!”

Finally, I got round to listening to Riva Starr’s Essential Mix, and it didn’t disappoint.

Made To Play has a strange obsession with Trumpets and that is very evident in this mix; however it works, as always.
