At the end of last year, Musical Freedom Radio decided to take their mix series in a new direction, inviting artists to showcase their own “musical freedom” in an hour-long set. The initiative gives its guests the opportunity to step outside the box of what they might typically play live. Earlier this year, Oliver Heldens mixed a classic disco set, while Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano took on techno and Tommy Trash mixed 60 minutes of electro.
This month, the label headed by Tiësto is featuring Wiwek for their Musical Freedom Radio Episode 21. Now airing exclusively on Music Freedom’s Soundcloud, Wiwek’s hip-hop influenced guest mix features selects from the very best of hits from the early 2000’s.
Wiwek has become widely known in dance music for fusing electronic elements with tropical rhythms to create a distinctive and refreshing sound. His tracks are being weaved into sets from heavy hitters like Skrillex, Laidback Luke, Major Lazer and DJ Snake. Best known for his singles “AngryBirdz” and “On Your Mark,” the up-and-comer has received support from powerhouse labels including OWSLA, Mixmash and Doorn Records. Most recently, he teamed up with Hardwell for their chart topping track “Chameleon.” With 2015 seeing the release of his EP Jungle Terror and performances at Ultra Miami, EDC Vegas and Electric Forest, the future is bright for the producer.
