From Eatgood Records Press Release:
Hailing from Birmingham, this Jump Off and End Of The Weak veteran has demonstrated his relentless talent throughout the country and captivated crowds alongside THE STREETS and FOREIGN BEGGARS to name a few. SONNYJIM’S new mix-CD is entirely comprised of original material, and features a plethora of the country’s most talented emcees including Mercury Music Prize Nominee and MOBO Award Winning SOWETO KINCH, FOREIGN BEGGARS, JEHST, STIG OF THE DUMP and KASHMERE. It is a raucous, fiery long player, with unrelenting skill and technique on show, over slick production.
/ Donnie Propa
Dedicated vinyl enthusiast & mixmaster, Donnie Propa’s rep has grown following the release of several quality Mixtapes he’s created for some high profile artists in the UK Hip Hop scene including ‘The Best Of Scorzayzee’, ‘The Skillsmen Mixtape’ alongside Cappo and the soon to drop ‘Late Checkout Mixtape’ with Sonnyjim. As well as a mix for Son Records of tracks from their back catalogue and a mix of classic Nottingham Hip Hop tracks for http://www.getnottz.co.uk.
With a ‘Best Of Lee Ramsay’ mix also in the pipeline and nearly a decade’s experience in the scene expect a selection of the biggest headnod tracks from the UK to the US all tightly mixed by the midland’s mixtape king
