Today we’re announcing the mixtape that so many have been asking about. While at this years’ South By Southwest Festival in Austin, TX the Mobile Studio team (Amond ‘AJ’ Jackson, Soul.Wallace, Tommy Blanco, Acrojam, Taylor, DJ Madflip, Mad Money James, Fokis and myself) was recording songs for what seemed to be 24 hours a day. Well, all those verses, beats, intros and outros have now been mixed, sequenced, and cut into one marvel of a mixtape.
The Quality Control x Unique Squared Official SXSW Mixtape showcases some of the best and most talented performers who graced the SXSW stages. Many of the emcess performed on one stage, then came to write and record on the tour bus (with an alloted time of about 30 minutes), then headed back out to perform another set on another stage at SXSW.

The bus was constantly buzzing with appearances from established and up and coming emcees, producers and taste makers like Black Milk, Tanya Morgan, Tef Poe, Skip Coon, Jon Connor, Artifacts, DJ Burn One, Skyzoo, Trackstar the DJ from the Smoking Section, as well as the crew from DJ Booth. The recording process went smooth as butter and we got some great verses.
In between all the recording going on, we had a show going Wednesday night with Quality Control at Club Fuze with living legend DJ Premier headlining and spinning tracks for NYGZ, Nick Javas, and Khaleel.
In addition, cats like R.E.K.S., Artifacts (official SXSW reunion btw), Binary Star and Atlanta’s own J-Live were rockin’ the spot. The showcase also featured …
