The idea was simple – capture the vibe of summer. Initially conceived by J.Blow (San Diego based DJ/Producer) as a mixtape for FamRoyal.com, the project quickly snowballed into something greater. Being uninterested in the modern “mixtape” approach consisting of MCs jacking beats from the flavor of the moment radio hits, J.Blow decided to pursue a different route and collaborate with some of his favorite San Diego MCs over his beats. Beats were crafted to set the vibe, then hand picked tracks were given out.
The end result stood on it’s own so well J.Blow decided to scrap the mixtape idea all together and instead release the tracks as an EP. The result is the Summer EP. The Summer EP contains 6 tracks produced by J.Blow featuring; Bam Circa 86 (from Brother Nature), Brek One (from Broken Dreams), Moodswing King (from Broken Dreams), Parker Edison (from Parker & The Numberman), Real J. Wallace (of Brother Nature) and PCH (Piff California Herrera). The EP was released the holiday weekend of September 2nd to commemorate the end of summer.
