Stevie G drops modern Irish soul mixtape

Stevie G drops modern Irish soul mixtape

Cork’s finest DJ, radio presenter and producer Stevie G has put together a near two hour mixtape of Irish soul and R&B jams from the last couple of years.

It features a bit of everything R&B, jazzy soul, afro, funk and rap and features Zali, Tomike, Soule, Shiv, Biig Piig, CMAT, Denise Chaila), Carrie Baxter, Meghan Murray, Selu, Minnie Marley, Drew Hall, Bukky, Caleb Kunle, Danny G, Senita, Tolu Makay, NC Grey and more full tracklist below.

Stevie made edits of a lot of the tracks and the voice over it is 16 year old rapper Aaliyah, based in Cork.

“This started off as a loose idea during the summer, where i wanted to do an r&b mix of local artists, and I started re-editing some intros by the likes of Zali, Tomike and even rappers like Denise Chaila. I ended up re-editing nearly every track on the mix by adding loads of samples and some spoken word bits and drops, and sometimes drums and intros to make it more DJ friendly (by it’s nature, this is music not meant for mixing so i had to get creative). I added some DJ interludes with familiar samples and grooves for the same reason, and I’m trying to hook more people in that way.  I’ve kept the tracks themselves intact. 

I kept the sound pretty much to the style I used play when I used first mix r&b and soul in the 90’s, but it’s all new artists, many of whom were only born around then! I sprinkled in a lit bit of afrobeats, jazz and other styles I play for seasoning, but wanted to keep it mainly r&b and soul. My DJing style is more about mixing than scratching, but it’s very much informed by hip-hop too, and there are a lot of hip-hop production values in the mix (the MPC was out!).”
