DJ Hedspin’s “Paaked” Mix Is A Trove Of Anderson .Paak’s Deep Cuts

Anderson .Paak was honing his voice for years before being introduced to the world on Dr. Dre's 2015 album, Compton. Luckily for Paak's growing fanbase, Red Bull Thre3style World Champion DJ Hedspin has compiled an hour-long mix of songs, samples, and collaborations across Paak's growing body of work, starting from his 'Breezy Lovejoy' era. The Toronto-via-Vancouver DJ's passion for the work is evident, and if you're even slightly in tune with the funky, soulful worlds and sounds .Paak operates in, it's hard not to get sucked into the golden vibes right from the jump.

"Anderson Paak's Malibu release and Yes Lawd! with Nxworries are definitely on my list of favorite albums in 2016," DJ Hedspin told The FADER over email. "As a fan, I decided to dig a bit deeper into his catalog to familiarize myself with his work. As a DJ, I always try to put out concept mixes of artists that release timeless classics and have longevity. I compiled this mix with the intent of putting his existing fans on to new songs/original samples they may have not heard before and to make new fans out of those not familiar. Yes Lawd!!!!!!"
