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.

We had everyone from Skewby to Skyzoo and J. Nics to Nick Javas come through and drop some gems for us. The days and nights proved to be long and fruitful as word started to spread about the ‘recording studio that’s a bus’.

Austin was an amazing experience, from the time we got there on Tuesday to leaving on Saturday, we did big things. 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.
