Steppin' Heavy Mix Series #1: Boogie Bangers

    Wax Poetics are excited to present the Steppin’ Heavy Mix Series, a fresh mixtape series curated and compiled by our good friend Induce.

    Induce breaks down the first mix Boogie Bangers in his own words:

    “In the first installment of the series, I wanted to come in heavy, strong and long. I’ve been wanting to put a mix like this together for a while – somewhere between the quintessential and the obscure, there’s a little for everyone here, be it timeless classics, or under the radar neck-snappers. And since all but one of the songs here are from the original 12” pressings (although no recent represses), I wanted to let the tracks stretch out a bit, foregoing the quick mixes for the fulfillment of maximum funk.”
