Sorry, y’all I’m in France so I haven’t had a chance to tag this properly or give it a proper 1st & 15th cover design, but the music is more important anyway, right? This week I’m very proud to host my man Meistro’s second installment of his very good Crab Chips & Lake Trout series which is, as he describes as a mix where each “track was either produced (or remixed) by a Baltimore artist. It is not an attempt at a “best of,” just a mix of tracks that represent the diversity of the Baltimore sound — new and old (although mostly from the past five years or so). Vocal joints, gospel, club bangers, etc. Hope you dig it!” It’s always nice to showcase the diversity found in Baltimore (it aint ALL just Club music out there!) and Meistro does a great job here. We love this mix and hope you do as well! Comments and thoughts always welcome!
