Mixtaped! is a brand new ‘micro’ party conceptualized & curated by Reji (http://rejistry.com/), starting April on Wednesday nights at The Den (Bandra, MUMBAI). Its the only night in the country where besides DJs, established singers, musicians, scenesters & nightlife industrywallahs too get a night to take control of the decks & dish out their favourite music for you in an intimate environment. Every Wednesday night, each handpicked artist would spin a DJ set or prepare a playlist of minimum 2 hours for the evening, as per his/her convenience. The music on each Mixtaped! night gives you a closer perspective in understanding the featured artist’s all time & current favourites, influences, sound and personality.

Each Mixtaped! session would also include a standard 5 question blog interview (http://rejistry.tumblr.com/tagged/mixtaped) followed by a 8 track playlist called microlist. microlists are 8 track playlists/samplers (http://8tracks.com/mixtapedmumbai) compiled in advance by the featured personality performing at Mixtaped! each week.

With a career spanning over 25 years, DJ Uri has been true to the Hip-Hop movement. Born in East London in 1974, his journey has been in full flow since 1982. Influenced by the “Street Sounds Compilations” and the break dance era, Uri has had a solid upbringing being exposed to underground music from an early age. 

Getting his first turntables aged 13 he began to DJ for Hip-Hop crew “The Uptown Posse”, and by the age of 15 Uri was performing to crowds playing Hip-Hop, Disco, Funk and Soul. 25 years on he has the same desire and continues dropping the freshest and funkiest music with regular gigs across the UK, Europe and India.
