Diaspora: A Global Mixtape Movement

Nomadic Wax Records set to release Volume 2 of “Diaspora: A Global Mixtape Movement

“These kinds of global collaborations are so important because they showcase the revolutionary power of Hip-Hop culture,” says Diaspora producer DJ Nio, “They bring people together from around the globe – even if they speak different languages, have different religions, ideas, and backgrounds. Hip-Hop is a universal language without barriers. Like George Clinton said, it works toward building ‘one nation under a groove’.” Following the critical success of Diaspora Mixtape Volume 1, NomadicWax Records is proud to announce the release of a second installment in the series. With unparalleled levels of innovation, Nomadic Wax’s second Diaspora Mixtape is something the global urban media market has never encountered. Nomadic Wax presents a broad variety of front line urban music from around the world, representing the genre’s growing presence in mainstream culture as well as its new stand alone capacity as a form of social and economic development. Diaspora Mixtape Volume 2 is mixed by Filipino-American DJ Boo (Juggaknots, Eternia), audio mix and mastered by Dan Cantor (Notable Productions), and produced by Genovese DJ Nio (Zero Plastica, Basement UnderGround). Volume 2 features talent from Africa, Europe, North America, Asia and South America. A global evolution from Tony Touch’s legendary Power Cypha: 50 MCs mixtapes series, the Diaspora Mixtape brings together over 50 international Hip-Hop artists who contribute a 16 bar verse in their native tongue, showcasing the cultural, stylistic, and linguistic diversity of each region’s respective Hip-Hop scene. Visit www.DiasporaMixtape.com to learn more about the project and download Volume 2 of the series. About Nomadic Wax – Nomadic Wax is a fair-trade media and events production company dedicated to producing and promoting global urban music.
